Vale DR Jim Burgess

Received news via the Class of 1973 that Dr Jim Burgess died last Wednesday 4 Jan. Jim was a lecturer in Geography at RMC and was also a member of the Rugby 1st XV in 1973 and possibly beyond.  He was apparently also well known amongst the Canberra Rugby community.

He had been ill for some time but steadfastly decided not to prolong his life and had elected not to have a funeral. A Memorial Service is on Friday 10 Feb at Duntroon Chapel followed by a reception at Duntroon House conducted by Tom Frame, former Anglican Bishop to the ADF. 

Could anyone who might wish to attend please let Chris Wallace know at
