    As we remember our Shipmate’s time at Williamstown Naval Dockyard:
    We know that the time comes to each of us, when the Supreme Commander calls us from our earthly service. No matter how well we prepare for this, we feel sorrow, when there is another gap in our ranks. Geoff, a Navy Veteran who served his Sovereign, his country and made a valued contribution to the great traditions of the Royal Australian Navy.
    There is no fear now, as Geoff embarks on the unknown sea. For he is in the care of the Great pilot, and we who remain, wish him a safe voyage, and firm anchorage in that final harbour, where storms and tempest are no more.

    2 months too late. I was a childhood playmate of Geoffrey when we lived in Manly. Deciding this morning to look him up I find I am 2 months too late. My sincerest sympathy to his family. Judy Harper (nee Oubridge).
