Tony Rumball died after a massive heart attack yesterday (Tuesday 9 October). Tony was in Third Class in 1969 and graduated from OCS Portsea in (I think) 1970, into the RAAOC. He retired as a LTCOL and joined the APS in the field of Logistics, ending that career as the Director of International Logistics in Strategic Logistics Branch.
He was a good bloke. On a personal note, we went through school together in Adelaide – he entered RMC a year ahead of me because I opted (involuntarily!) to do a second matriculation year.
No details yet on funeral arrangements.
