    Public - Roscoe - Comrade - 13 April 2018
  • Bob was only a few weeks from returning to New Zealand (RTNZ) after completing his 2 year Tour of Duty for New Zealand with the 28th ANZUK Brigade (Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom).
    Public - Roscoe - Comrade - 10 September 2017
  • Our brother "Bob" was accidentally killed in the Malaysian Jungle by "dead tree fell" during exercise "3 Bridges". Two other soldiers were seriously hurt during this tragic incident. Remember this brave soldier who was sent far away form his home, friends and whanau. Died in a foreign land as he was willing to put his life on the line for his country and the fight for freedom. Lest we Forget.
    Public - Roscoe - Comrade - 10 September 2017
