Condolences from a baby Bracegirdle
I am so sorry that this consummate gentleman has died and Mac was an inspiration to my late Father, to myself and many more. His erudite website has been a magnificent example to all naval historians and shipmates. It was a huge pleasure to meet Mac and his wife in Canberra at the launch of an exhibition at AWM entitled "FIFTY AUSTRALIANS".
RAN history is made all the more accessible by this wonderful gentleman and even in our sorrow, we hope that his family are strengthened by the many tributes from all over the globe.
God Bless you Mac,
Lieut Cdr NICOLAS BRACEGIRDLE MBE RN (BATH, UK)
