Barry was a very good friend of mine on Voyager, he was the only one to turn up when I had to go to court for compensation, I also used to call in and see himin Wollongong on my way to Huskisson for our reunions, I will miss his emails and send my condolences to Robin and his son,
Farewell mate the suffering is over, Fair winds.

Les,
Just realised all my photo,s of Barry in rig went down with the ship, and I was discharged after that, perhaps someone not a voyager survivor has a picture as I see he stayed in the navy afterwards.

The following e-Mail message from Marty Grogan has been inserted by Les Sheehan
==============================================================  

It is my sad duty to report that Beachball passed away unexpectedly (after a long illness) at 0430 on 10th July at Shell Harbour Hospital.

Beachball was a HMAS VOYAGER Survivor and gave evidence at many of the inquiries how he had served CMDR Duncan STEVENS  a triple brandy on the night of the collision. This evidence and the collision haunted him the rest of his life.

He then served in the following Ships:

QUIBERON, DUCHESS, SYDNEY, ANZAC and SYDNEY again.

I had the honour to serve with him onboard HMAS DUCHESS from 1966 to 1968 where we were both Killicks. He skidded me to being Killick of the S&S Mess.

He is survived by his wife Robyn and 2 Sons. Cards can be sent to 30 Sassafras Street, WINDANG, 2528, NSW.

Funeral details:

1000 _ Tuesday 16th July
Rankins Funeral Parlour
Cowper Street
WARRAWONG (Near Wollongong/Port Kembla)

No flowers by request.  Donation to Respiratory Unit, Shell Harbour Hospital.

Medals to be worn.

Marty
