Sherry,

Thank you for your prompt reply.

Date of death was 6 June 1945.

I don't know when funeral was but he is buried in Lae Memorial Cemetery.

Presumably it was around June 1945.

Cheers,

Subject: QX6681 Adrian Roy Doneley

Is it possible to obtain a "Eulogy" for QX6681 Adrian Roy Doneley similar to
the one shown below my signature block.

QX6681 Adrian Roy Doneley
<http://amvif.com/stcmilitary/Honours%20and%20Gallantry.htm>

I'm a Vietnam Veteran (Service Number 1733153) and three years ago our old
school (Saint Columban's at Caboolture) invited myself and fellow Vietnam
Veterans who were past students to participate in their Annual Anzac Day
Ceremony.

In appreciation of this gesture we have presented the college with framed
montages each year.

Hyperlink shows photos of this year's ceremony: 2013 Ceremony Photos.htm
<http://amvif.com/stcmilitary/2013%20Ceremony/2013%20Ceremony%20Photos.htm>
where we paid tribute to Blaine Diddams KIA Afghanistan 2 July 2012.

I was able to obtain details for Blaine and Vince Healy in 2012 but I am
finding it harder for our WW2 fellow students.

Thank you.

flank to thicken up the front line, which at that time was under heavy
machine gun and mortar fire. He was ordered to dispose his section at 3
posts and when his section was reduced to 3 men he moved while under fire
from post to post to bolster up the defence in his section."
