Vale Bruce “Gangles” Neilson
Wilkes 66 and Macca 69
Bruce was a Radio Operator highly regarded by his fellow Expeditioners.
He was one of about a dozen of so Radio Operators, over the years, recruited from the Melbourne Chief Telegraph Office that served with ANARE.
He did two stints, Wilkes 1966 and Macquarie Island 1969.
I reckon him and Narra would be knocking a few back and sharing a story or two right now!
