Paul Clarke passed away on June 5th, 2022, and his memorial service was held at the Hemmant Cemetery on Friday, June 17th. Paul was a veteran, and served in the 104th Signal Regiment, receiving the Australian Active Service Medal 1945-1975 with Vietnam Clasp, Vietnam Medal, Australian Defence Medal, and Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal with 1960 Bar.
The service was very well attended, and among the invitees were representatives from the Veterans’ Support Group and Men’s Shed, namely Peter Handy, Peter Cameron, Kevin Roberts and Andy Bryson.
Following the service, attendees were invited to the Wynnum RSL for refreshments and a further ceremony. Paul expressed his wish for his medals to be presented to a young Air Force member Justin, a friend of the family, and Peter Handy was honoured to present the medals to him. Paul is survived by his wife Dot, and she was showered with many hugs and well-wishes by friends and family. Paul and Dot had an agreement. Whoever went first, they would send the winning Lotto numbers via a dream – so sweet dreams Paul, till you and Dot meet again
