It was always a great pleasure to go to Bellarine RAM and Jim’s smiling face was a feature
It was always a shot about Naval service him being Real Navy (RN) and myself Real Armature Navy (RAN) he being a “Birdie” and me General service but we were at least agreeable we were in the elite branch of a “Greenie”
He will be sadly missed . . . . BZ

Jim valued family and tradition, was a true gentlemen who always had an engaging smile and sense of humour.

Thanks for your friendship these past 76 years. Treasured memories of the ‘Peg and Bet’ and the bed collapse at 2.0am in the morning. Goodbye, Jack, Dear Friend, Rest Now in Peace- unless the engine breaks down and you have to get the Primus Stove going to heat the plugs.
