I regret to advise of the passing on Saturday 17th October 2020, in Perth WA, of Lieutenant Graham Falkiner, aged 84 years.

Graham joined the Navy in early 1955 as a member of Naval Airman Aircrew Course 18. After earning his “Wings”, he was posted to HMS Gannet, Eglington, Northern Ireland, for training as an anti-submarine warfare pilot on Gannet aircraft. He was posted to 816 Squadron (Gannets) on his return to Australia in 1958 and thereafter undertook service in HMAS Melbourne (816) and HMAS Albatross (724 ) until his retirement in 1964 on completion of his Short Service Commission.

Graham is survived by his wife Susan, children Digby and Kathy and grandchildren Daniel, Dylan, Jemima and Jescinta.

Funeral arrangements are not yet known to me.
