I am honoured to have known you a little Mac

Dear Sirs 

I am almost a year in cognisance of the passing of Mac in August of last year

I came across his website about a decade ago and have helped him and spoken with him on a few (too few) occasions over the years 

I am the second cousin (removed) of Mac's old boss - Commander and later Captain John Malet Armstrong (Jock or Black Jack) the XO and later Captain of HMAS Australia 

Mac spoke fondly of Jock and recounted to me several tales of daring do on board 

I am honoured to have known you a little Mac, and I am thinking of you and your family 

RIP with your fellow shipmates. I salute you Mac

your truly indeed



EF Malet de Carteret
