“On a personal note, I wish to thank Phil for the support he gave to me not only as a member of the Board of Directors of RSLWA but also to me as President of the Albany RSL Sub-Branch and, in particular, as the Chairman of the Albany Centenary of ANZAC Alliance.

“His wise counsel and always available guidance were invaluable to me through the ups and downs of the Alliance.

“A well-deserved recognition Phil.”
