VALE – Lieutenant James ‘Jim’ Howard Durrant Rtd – RAN
This email is forwarded to confirm the passing of Jim Durrant.
Jim’s wife Kay has advised that Jim passed away on Wednesday 21 December after a very long illness that taxed him and the family very hard. The family are planning Jim’s funeral today and Kay will advise details when planning has been finalised.
For those who might remember Jim, he was a former Senior Sailor commissioned in 1971 as a Seaman Officer. Jim later served as Co of HMAS BRUNEI and later still as XO of HMAS DIAMANTINA (I). Jim and I served together on a few occasions, mainly in the aircraft carrier HMAS MELBOURNE and in HMAS DIAMANTINA (I).
Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time.
