UPDATE: We are really sad to advise that Peter died peacefully on 14 April 2021 just a couple of weeks after his 99th birthday. We are so grateful that John and Neville were able to visit him on his birthday. The distinguished article link below now includes an obituary submitted by James Ruddock Broyd and published in the Daily Telegraph on 8 June 2021 and The Weekend Australia on 19 June 2021.
ORIGINAL STORY: While the SOF AGM was being held in the UK, on the other side of the world in Australia, Peter Bailey (K34-38) was celebrating his 99th birthday. In advance, then President Simon Dougherty had sent a message on behalf of the Society and this was personally delivered by OF Neville Marsh (S53-61) and John Gates (S44-48).
