It appears the FAAAA may not have been advised of the death of Mike (Micky) Edmonds last Sunday. His funeral was held on the Gold Coast on 02 March 2012.

Mike was an S2 Tracker observer, having joined in the mid-1960s. He served on VC851, VS816 and was SOBS VS816 in the late 1970s and was onboard HMAS Melbourne for the 1980 Indian Ocean deployment. He paid off as a CMDR in the late 1980s.
