5411378 CPL ANGUS MACKAY – 1 RAR Vietnam First Tour

Unfortunately, I have some sad news. 5411378 CPL Angus MACKAY who served in 1 RAR on their first tour of Vietnam passed away on Monday morning 8 March 2021. Angus lost his battle with cancer and passed away peacefully at his farmhouse in Nabawa, Chapman Valley, Western Australia.

Angus was a quiet man, a typical WA farmer and former soldier who was as hard as nails and who had a wicked sense of humour. Angus marched on ANZAC Days with the Northampton District Veterans and always attended the annual Northampton RSL Sub- Branch Dinner. Other than that, he rarely spoke of his army service except sometimes when having a few beers at the Northampton District Bowls Club, of which he was the Club Captain.

Angus will be sadly missed by all his mates here in Northampton, the Chapman Valley and no doubt around the country. He is survived by his wife Diane and three sons.

Funeral Details:
