My self Keith Fletcher and David White attended a service for Johnno the 30th December at the Bordertown RSL .Johnno served in Vietnam with B Coy 4Pl 3RAR as a Corporal un till our return to Australia then he transferred to 4RAR with Support Coy until their Return Australia where he stayed till his discharge. Johnno and I went through Recruit and Corpse then to 3RAR together where we both finished up in BCoy Johnno was a good and well like and respected Digger a great character . It was an excellent service with about 150 people in attendance at the Bordertown RSL. His brother Trevor gave one of t5he best eulogy I have heard . Most of the photos we got from his 4RAR mates pictured Nobby Knowles, Matt Swan, Peter Vesely and the Kernel also Trevor during the eulogy with Johnno’s ashes and his GP boots on the table with his Harley in the background and his son Matt and daughter.
We also have a good photo of his memorabilia with our flag and his4RAR flag.You will be missed mate.
