Since I wrote last month about Peter's hospitalisation, with sorrow I must now inform that he passed away last Sunday. Many ex-Service veterans and former members of the RAN Engineering and Electrical Branches will remember him as a most highly valued friend and mentor.
The funeral will be at Norwood Crematorium at 1030 on Wednesday 28th December. Medals may be worn.
Peter was a Life Member of the Naval Association of Australia. Through his tireless work assisting ex-Defence members with DVA Entitlements and Appeals he was awarded the Centenary Medal in 2001 For service at a national level to the Veterans' community"
In 20014 he was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) "For service to Veterans and their families, particularly through the Naval Association of Australia."
