My sincere thanks to the members of T.S. Vindicatrix Of South Australia, who attended my father’s funeral on 26 April 2018.
His involvement in your organisation brought him much joy, as he always said, 'happier days'
Kind regards
Stephen

Once again we have received the sad news that another Queensland "Vindi Boy" has "crossed the bar",Rob Lynde. Although I never knew Rob I did know of him from many other Vindi boys "Down-Under" and he always appeared to be a very well liked man. On behalf of all members of our Independent Vindicatrix of East Kent association may I extend our sincere condolences to his family and his many friends. R.I.P. Rob.

It was with deep regret that I heard today that our 1939 Vindi Boy Bill Gould from Queensland had "crossed the bar" recently. Bill always looked a real "dapper" gentleman, always smart and always looked fit and I'm sure he lived life to the full. I know that all who knew Bill will mourn his passing and he is now at peace. On behalf of our Independent Vindicatrix of East Kent we send our sincere condolences to his family and friends on their sad loss at this time. R.I.P. Bill, you were one of life's real gentlemen.
