My Father Anthony ‘Tony’ Ernest King passed away on Monday the 11th of October 2021. He was a lifelong member of the 8RAR ‘Grey Eight’ Association, and would wear his Grey Eight Polo top with pride!

Army Number:3791851

Rank on Discharge: Private

Service: Australian Regular Army Supplement (NS)

Principal Units:

2 Recruit Training Battalion

1st Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment

8th Battalion,  The Royal Australian Regiment

Service overseas: Singapore 15th March to 18 June 1969 (Malaya – Terrandak Garrison). Dad was involved in a traumatic car accident near Wangarratta in 1969 which cut his National Service short. From all accounts, Dad wished to be a career serviceman.

Please reach out, we would love for any 8RAR members who knew Dad to be able to view the live stream this Friday:
