Advice has been received that ex-WOATV (ATWL) Wayne Asher passed away on 12 July 2018 after an illness.   

Wayne joined the RAN on 7 January 1964 and retired from the Navy on 11 January 2018 after 54 years of combined Permanent Navy and Naval Reserve service. A truly remarkable career.

A memorial service was held on Thursday 19 July 2018 at the Nowra Golf Club, which was attended by some 250 people.

    I remember Wayne, he was in Winjan 1 and I in Winjan 3 ’64.Then he went to Skyhawks, next to my H hangar (816) Remember his grin it covered his whole face. More a great friend of my best mate Con Vergeer, also Skyhawks and passed away these many years. Had many a drink with both of them. Great Days. What an amazing service record.
