During my tour I was a gunner with “A” Company and my number two was a little tasmanian bloke- Gary Cashion. Gary remained in country at the completion of our tour and joined you blokes , whilst on Ops with 7RAR he was struck and killed by lightening !.
Some years after I became aware of a photo in the Aus War Memorial of both myself and Gary however they had the names wrong and Gary was’nt mentioned. I have just had the pleasure of being advised by the AWM that they have corrected this situation and Gary is now correctly identified with a note of his death with 7RAR within the caption.
If any of your members who may have known Gary (“Crew”) Cashion and wish to view the AWM Photograph it’s id is WAR/70/0100/VN…Just log onto AWM photographs and enter the id.
Best Regards, Laurie Carroll
