A Tribute to our Friend and Colleague 'Mac' - Rex Williams

LCDR Mackenzie Gregory RAN Rtd  'Passes over the Bar'  


Mackenzie Gregory was a compassionate, giving man with a passion for Naval History.

He was a very committed member of the Naval Historical Society of Australia, always seeking to further the aims and objectives of the society at any opportunity. 

A highly intelligent man he was a former Chapter President and currently fulfilled the role of Chapter Historian and Vice President.

Through his web site and role as Chapter Historian he was ever ready to assist members of the public seeking information.

Mac was an excellent communicator and spoke extremely well. He told things as they were and was able to reach out to all ages, young and small.

Mac was a prolific contributor to his website: Mac’s web log ahoy which featured 28324 articles on naval, maritime Australian historical subjects and more.

With his passing Australia is all the poorer.

We may never see his like again!
