Condolences - Pattie Wright
I am so very sorry to hear that this gentle, and clever man has left this world.
I met Mac back in 2009 when I was doing the early research prep on work for a biography of CPO Ray Parkin - HMAS Perth.
I had found Mac's website, Ahoy, and called him. We became email buddies and when, one day, I asked him if he could come over to my house for a cuppa and cake and try to give a land lubba' some idea of how Perth's final battle played out, he was happy to do so.
Thank you for your service Mac. I am honoured to have met you. Fair winds and smooth seas.
