A fitting tribute to a great, respected and decorated soldier. JJ will certainly missed by many a veteran mate. Served with honour and now gone to meet up with his fellow soldiers in arms. Persevere.

Rest In Peace old mate, it was an immense honour to have served with you in the 1st Battalion, you leave me with so many fond memories, (including you referring to me as “O’Crick”) you were one of, if not the greatest “Soldiers Officer” I ever served with during my 31 year service with The Royal Australian Regiment .
My sincere condolences to Fiona and family.

Jock set many of us Apprentices on our military journey – I have witnessed a number of memories passing around amongst our class 37th (82 / 83) of his time and various colourful arse kickings, quips, and laughs. A great mentor who will never be forgotten – We will raise a toast to him out our pending reunion at Canungra on 8 Jan.
