Sadly Antarctic connection to passengers on MH17

Vale Dr Roger Guard- HI 1986 & wife Dr Jill Guard

Peter Keage contacted me today to advise that Dr Roger Guard  who was a member of a small ANARE Expedition to Heard Island 14/11/1986 – 21/1/1987 was aboard the ill fated flight MH17.
Sadly Dr Guard and his wife Dr. Jill Guard both perished in this tragedy. Roger was Director of the Pathology Unit in Toowoomba Hospital and his wife Jill was a GP with Family Planning Queensland. Our sympathies go out to their family and friends.
