Cancellation of the remainder of our trip

My Dad has been terminally ill for some time, and sadly, after a long battle, he passed away on Sunday morning.  As a result, Marija and I canceled the remainder of our park activations and our trip, and we headed back to Adelaide.

Dad served with the South Australia Police between 1955-1992, and attained the rank of Sergeant.  He also performed National Service with the Army and attained the rank of Sergeant.

Dad was awarded the National Medal, the Australian Police Medal, and the Australian Defence Medal for his service in both the Police and the Army.

Dad, you will be very sorely missed.  We all love you very much.

    • Hi Chris,

      Dad had been sick for some time, so in the end it was a blessing that he passed and was no longer in pain.

      He was a great Dad, who also encouraged me in whatever I did. From a radio point of view, when I was about 14 he bought me a Communications receiver, so I could listen in to the police broadcasts. He also put up a long wire so I could tune in to SW. He never really had an interest in radio himself. He probably got enough at work.
