Donald enlisted into the KOYLI raising to the rank of Serjeant and saw service in Kenya and Cyprus. Don left the Army to pursue a professional rugby league career which was curtailed through injury.

Our thoughts and condolences are with Donald's family and his many friends at the sad time.

As the bugle sounds 'No More Parades' and you take your place in the FRV, rest in peace Donald. Cede Nullis.
