From Boris:

Just found out on facebook page for "ran pussers greenies ex and serving" that Ex-JR CPOETP Edward (Buster) Crabb passed the bar on the 28th of May in Hervey Bay, apparently he spent time at Nirimba on at least two occasions I know of, ship's company and on a course, probably one of the phase courses.

Vale, Buster. :(

Does anyone know if Buster was in the 10th JR intake? I am fairly sure we had a Crabb in our intake.

Smiley,

I've had a search of National Archives, and the only result I found was an Edward Sidney Crabb R94599, who joined Leeuwin in Jan 65 - Dec 65.

His Vietnam Service was 2 x trips on the Ferry in 1966, as an EM.

Vale Buster :salute1:
