Vale- Major General Neville Smethurst

Station Year Season
Wilkes 1961 Winter OIC

I am very sad to report the death of Nev Smethurst on Tuesday July 2nd. Nev, was the Officer – in – Charge (the ‘OIC’) of the 14th ANARE team at Wilkes 1961.
His funeral is to be held at Duntroon Military College in Canberra on Friday July 19 at 10h00 for 10h30. All the former Wilkes ’61 crew have been notified, but there may well be other former ANARE folks who would be interested in attending.
If anyone is keen to follow up, would they email me on or call 02 8065 5179.
