The following is a listing in the Last Post section of the latest RSL Reveille magazine. As a result I have checked DVA Nominal Roll and Skilled Hands for further details.

Robert Norton PIERSON, R42282

6th Intake (Jan 59)

His Vietnam service consisted of:

3 x Vung Tau Trips in HMAS Melbourne (65 & 66)

3 x Vung Tau trips in HMAS Sydney - No 725 Sqd (67) as a CPOSAAW.

I have no other details. Sad to hear the news of another MOBI loss.

RIP Robert :salute1:

Sad news indeed. I remember Bob as a no nonsense WO who was liked and respected by all who knew him, Officers and Sailors alike sought his advice, a great mentor for the younger generations.

Age certainly does not diminish my memories of Bob, a gentle giant with a great heart.

:-k Whilst I can't recall ever meeting Robert, it's always sad to learn of the passing of a fellow MOBI... [-( VALE Robert, rest on your oars, your journey's done... Another MOBI taken too young... [-( R.I.P.
