G’day ANARE folk,
It is with deep regret that I must inform you of the passing of former expeditioner Douglas John Cameron.
“Doug the Dieso” headed south on four occasions. He wintered at Davis, Casey, Mawson and Macquarie Is.
Many may not know that, following a motor bike accident in late 1995, Doug was rendered a quadreplegic. With the assistance of family and carers he managed to enjoy a comfortable and reasonably independent life at his own home in Wurtulla, Qld.
Following recent serious health issues Doug passed away peacefully on the evening of 2 August, 2020.
Thought you might like to know.
Bruce Cameron ( Doug’s brother )
