  7. Sincerest condolences on the loss of a great man. He was one of the last of the “Old School” Coppers and was a great mentor to many junior members (who are now becoming veterans themselves). He will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by many.

  9. I am in shock, I just left my old friend a message as I hadn’t heard from him for a while. We were ;planning a trip on my houseboat and tonight I have learnt we have lost him.. He was great man, ;pound for pound the toughest man I ever met. We worked Brawler vans and demonstrations together while at the IPG under Chippy Norton. then later on the Beat at Burke St West.
    I was there the night he met Helen, I was at his wedding , he was at mine. One amazing friend and I loved him.

    Rest well my old mate

  11. To the family of Bill just watched the service Bill was unique was not one of my men but was in Geelong 1975-81. We bonded and were good mates-he was a great copper. The prick would not come to the Feather Dusters at the Sir Charles Hotham Hotel but I still loved him regards ex D/S/Sgt Greg Moore 16051
