It is my sad duty to once again post information on a shipmate who has crossed the bar.
Martin (Joe) Clyde Turner R/55665 joined the RAN on 25th June 1958 as a Rct/Smn for 9 years.
He eventually retired as a CPO/WM many years later after having served on several ships including HMAS Voyager.
He served in Voyager in the early 60s as an Able Seaman Gunner (Q) and retired as a CPOWM.
He left Voyager on 2-11-1963 on annual leave and then to HMAS Lonsdale on 29/11/1963.
Our shipmate crossed the bar Thursday, 30 May 2013 aged 72 years young.
Joe had suffered a major stroke last year and had been in a high-care facility for most of this year.
Ships and Bases: Cerberus, Diamantina, Melbourne, Harman, Voyager July 61-Nov 63, Lonsdale, Hobart, Supply.
On behalf of all ex Voyagers Irene and I pass on our condolences to Joe's Wife, Margaret, family and friends on the sad loss.

We wish Joe safe and calm travels on his final voyage.

Lest we Forget
Les Sheehan
