Mr James Ernest Webster - Late KOYLI and LI

It is with great sadness that I have to inform members that Mr James Ernest Webster late KOYLI and LI, died on 4 Jan 23 aged 81.

James enlisted into the KOYLI and move to 2LI in 1968 when the KOYLI was disbanded. He rose to the rank of Cpl.

James will be greatly missed by association members who knew and served with him.

Our thoughts and condolences at the sad time are with James's wife Marjorie and his family.


As the bugle sounds 'No More Parades' and you take your place in the FRV,

your duty done with honour and distinction.

Rest in Peace James.

Cede Nullis.
