For classmates of Blaine Diddams

3rd December 2012

As you are probably aware a fellow classmate of yours, Blaine Diddams, was Killed In Action in Afghanistan on 2nd July 2012.

STC Past Military Students will be presenting a frame with replicas of Blaine's Campaign Medals which include an American Gallantry Medal Army Commendation Medal (ARCOM) - USA.pdf at next year's (2013) Saint Columban's Anzac Day Ceremony.

Linda Upton who has responsibility for contact with Past Students identified 120+ classmates of Blaine's. On my behalf she was endeavouring to see if any of Blaine's classmates might have photos of his schooldays suitable for inclusion in the frame.

School holidays are just about here so it may be easier for you to copy any replies to me (as well as Linda). Most people should be able to take a good photo with their mobile phone. Send them to me by email or mobile phone.

I'm pretty sure you will be very welcome Saint Columban's Anzac Day Ceremony in 2013. STC don't finalise the date until the new school year but it will be slightly before Anzac Day and after Easter (holidays).

I was Class of 1963 and a Vietnam Veteran.
