It is with much sadness that Peter Oxley advises us of the recent death on 5 September 2022 of Fred Preston, a veteran of 43RM Commando 'C' Troop and founder member of the Commando Association. Final rank in the Corps - Colour Sergeant. Our thoughts and prayers are with all his family and friends at this time.

Rest in peace Fred.
