I knew of a fellow Muppet that unfortunately died whilst serving.

Greg Brodin was a JR (1982) and joined NIRIMBA Jan 1983 as an Apprentice ETC.

In 1985, whilst at FIMA(K), we both volunteered for a short jolly (6 weeks) on Jervis Bay going to Fiji. Tragically not long after returning to Sydney, Greg was killed in a motorcycle accident (I believe after a fight with his girlfriend?). He died of head injuries.

Greg was a mighty fine bloke and died way too young.

There was also Michael Dernedde (Jul 68 intake) and Lou McKenna (Jan 1968 intake) who argued with a tree at high speed and lost, near Nowra shortly after leaving Nirimba.



Christopher Humby (Jan 68) was also killed in this accident

Clive Eldershaw (was a junior recruit and then went to Nirimba Jan 1972 intake) who was a Greenie died in a car accident near Nowra i think in 1973. He was a passenger in a car driven by another MOBI. I remember all of our intake going to the burial ceremony at Chatswood.
