William (Jock) Liddle

This post is a difficult one as Jock was a great friend and a ex Voyager crew.
It is with deep sadness posting this information for a shipmate who finally succumbed to Cancer after several years of a long and hard fought battle.
Jock crossed the bar this morning (12th June 2013 at 11:00am) whilst in palliative care in Melbourne hospital aged 74 years young.
Our deepest condolences to Cath (Jocks wife), family and friends over their very sad loss.

Jock, originally from Scotland, Glasgow, joined the RAN on 16th Feb 1957 and remained in for 12 years. DEE was 13th Jan 1969 as a POSTD.
He served in the following HMA Shops and Depots: Cerberus, Sydney, Voyager 2 years July 57 - July 59, Albatross, Melbourne, Penguin, Lonsdale, Derwent, Creswell.

Funeral service details:
Charles Crawford & Sons
Cnr McKenzie & Palmerston Sts.,
Melton  Vic
Tuesday 18th June 2013 - 1:30pm
Private cremation following service
Viet Vets arranging service
Medals are requested to be worn
 


May your final Voyage to God's Kingdom be with smooth seas and fair winds shipmate.


I recently asked Jock along with Jim Ellwood to make a presentation of Voyager material and a book I donated to TS Voyager which he did and I do have some photos to post on the website showing the presentation. I am very pleased to know that Jock was delighted to do the presentation and was one of his last functions.
