It is my sad duty to report the passing of Alan Clark.

Alan was a Life Member of the FAAAA and long time committeeman of the Victoria Division.

Alan joined the Navy in March 1948 and served until March 1963.  He was a CPO at the time of his discharge.   He was 92 at the time of his passing.

Alan was one of the originals who went to the UK for training and returned with HMAS Sydney.

He was a Korean Veteran and served on Sydney, Melbourne, Albatross and Cerberus.

I am informed that he also spent some time in the recruiting office.

Alan spent the last few years in the Vasey RSL Home where he died peacefully surrounded by loved ones on Saturday 5th June, 2020.

Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time.

Yours Aye

Mal Smith
Secretary, VIC Division
