24 Feb Report of loss
Hi to all . Have just been told that Des Vizzard has gone . Details are very sketchy and I have been unable to find any details of funeral arrangements .Des had been crook for quite a while but attended our last Anzac day function in Sydney ,kind of a last hurrah . If anyone knows any more details could they please inform me via this network . He was a great bloke and another of our genuine ‘characters’
Also , a few weeks ago I asked if anyone had any knowledge of Owen Rogers , and again I received a rather vague phone call saying that he had passed away last year . I cannot get any confirmation of this ,so once again if anyone has any information I would be much obliged to hear from them . He too was a good bloke and an excellent SCO to work with .

I can confirm that Des Vizzard passed away on 19 February 2022. Got that from his Facebook page, but it doesn’t give any funeral details. As you say, a great bloke who I had the pleasure of being led astray by on a few occasions many years ago.
Also, like you I heard that Owen Rogers was no longer with us. I heard that from a former Chief RP but haven’t been able to find any detail confirming it.
Hope you and Dot are keeping well.
