  14. To Diane and Graham
    My Sincere condolences to you from the Enthronement Team of Royal Ark Mariners
    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
