Vale John Erskine
A quick message to let you know that my father John Erskine died peacefully yesterday evening. (25th July 2010) He was 95.
My father was the OIC Mawson Expedition 1967-68. He had a life-long fascination with Antarctica, and deeply valued his experience at Mawson and the comradeship there.
I would be grateful if you could make mention him so that his Antarctic friends know of his passing.
John is survived by his wife Betty (91) and his children and grandchildren.
John’s funeral was in Manuka, Canberra on Friday 30th July.
