RIP Tony Smallbon

G'day Mates

It is with great sadness I must advise you of the passing of Rev. Tony Smallbon. Tony passed away peacefully at 0120 this morning after a long battle with cancer, today was his birthday. Tony was with the Platoon from 10 May 67 to 9 Apr 68. I know Tony was doing his best to make the reunion however it seems that Jesus Christ has work for him to do in another place. Our thoughts are with Tony's family during this time.

I will let you all know of the funeral arrangements as soon as they come to hand.

Lest we forget.

Standown Park Visit

A few of us who made the trip north to Standown Park had a great time, will worth the trip north. We enjoyed the company of about 100 other Vets from all walks of live and unites. We had the only Banner there and we marched behind it with pride. We are hoping the make the trip again next year and with a bit of luck a few more of us can make it.
On the light side, just take a look at the photo on the left. If that's not "Shorty Edwards" reborn will I'm not here. That's just how he looked in the photo taken at the Wagga Wagga reunion. The poor bugger did'nt know what all the fuss was about.
Not long until the reunion now, all is just about in place and we are looking forward to seeing you all ther.
On a sader note, Tony Smallborn is not very well at all, and is unlikly to make the reunion. He is in palliatave care at the moment and is very sick. Spare a thought for him and his family over the next few days.
Until the next time please stay safe
