Vale Ralph Mayer.
We are sad to report the passing of Ralph Mayer [no date provided but likely to have been in early 2015].
A Life Member and long time Committeeman of the Victoria Division Ralph was one of the “Originals” completing the first Aircraft Handlers course. Ralph served from 1945-1957 on the following :
HMAS Cerberus , Hobart , Lonsdale , Kanimbla , Albatross , Sydney , Vengeance , Melbourne , HMS Siskin ( Illustrious ) Glory.
Our thoughts are with his wife Margaret and family at this difficult time.
A ‘Flying Stations’ article was kindly provided by Glen Hartig, the ex-Postie, giving some details of Ralph’s remarkable life.
