A Comrade Passes

Regret to announce the passing of Rod Amey RE, today 22nd Feb. Rod has been a good friend always there if information needed, met him only twice at the Nat Mem before health problems prevented driving. His cheerful disposition belied the stoic way he coped, he will be remembered for his pride in being a Sapper many of his mails and pic’s confirmed this. I’ve passed condolences to Rod’s family.

Farewell to a loyal supporter of this Forum.


Re: A Comrade Passes

Really sad news. I have been in constant contact with Rod for a long time. Never knew there was anything seriously wrong with him. He was obviously older than our mob but I never thought of him that way.

RIP Rod, You will be missed by many. Gwynn (Taffy)
