Major (Ret'd) Jim Hammond Intelligence Corps

Once again it is my sad task, as Branch Chairman, to pass on to the membership the news of the death of one of our members.

Lawrence Ritchie Hammond – known to all of us as either ‘Jim’ or ‘Thumbs’ – passed away suddenly on the 10th of February. Jim, who was resident in Western Australia, was a member of the Branch for almost 20 years.

You will all have your personal memories of this very talented Intelligence Corps Linguist/Reporter, who combined his tremendous level of professionalism with a wonderful personality and sparkling sense of humour. Please feel free to use the Guesbook facility on the website to post your own tributes to Jim. RIP.
