Passing Parade: 216793 Dennis Fredrick Symington – 4RAR – 2/4RAR
Below is a notice from Merv Dicton of 2/4RAR who has advised us of the passing of Dennis (Slim) Symington who served with the 4RAR in SVN1 and SVN2.
Sad news reported by Foxy Allan Gray who had a call from Hilary Gall this morning to say that Slim Symington had passed away last week in Griffith Hospital after a long illness. Foxy called his wife Rae to give her his condolences and she told him his funeral was last Friday in Griffith. He asked if we could put something on the 2/4 RAR page to let everyone know and she said yes. Sadly another of our originals has left us and the world is the poorer for his passing. Slim served two tours of Vietnam with 4 RAR. Condolences to Rae, family, friends and brothers in arms.
RIP ol mate. Lest We Forget.
