Begin forwarded message:

From: "Bob Mummery" <bandi@iinet.net.au>
Subject: VALE - CMDR SDSU(W) L. G. "TUG" WILSON OAM MBE RAN RTD.
Date: 18 July 2019 at 11:05:45 pm AEST
To: "Bob Mummery" <bandi@iinet.net.au>

Tug Wilson, a commanding Commander.

From AB Writer to Commander, Tug will be well remembered as the scribe who collated and wrote up “Skilled Hands at Sea”, the story of Australian Naval Apprentices. That work was done in his own time assisted by family and friends, and much of the work had to be undertaken by deciphering hand written records from NIRIMBA’s early days. A marvellous job well done and of which he was most proud. I was fortunate enough to have him present a signed copy to me not long before he retired from the RAN.

The remarkable “Wilson” work ethic transferred to his son David who became the Warrant Officer of the Navy 1999 – 2002, and Tug was one very proud father. Two remarkable men.

Thank you Tug

Bob Mummery

I was at Nirimba at one stage when Tug was there, but I didn't have any direct dealings with him.

RIP Tug. :salute1:

I still have my original signed copy from Tug, one of the first printed. A good bloke. Fair winds and a following sea Tug. :yes:
