George Mansford’s Tribute

“Moff left us yesterday, 12 June to join the ever -growing RAR ghost column from our pages of history. AIF, 1RAR, 2RAR, 3RAR and AATTV. And the bast–rd still owes me a rifle pull through, a field dressing, an oil bottle, a barrow load army socks, multiple combat tin openers. Plus the cause of many memories of pack drill on the parade ground due to injustices by misguided RSMs and Officers.

A SOLDIER’S SOLDIER AND A GREAT COBBER FOR 69 YEARS”

George
