  • I was in the NZ Army and was on a two year tour-of-duty with the Pay Corps in Singapore where I served beside Fred at Nee Soon Garrison and Dieppe Barracks. Fred and I struck up a friendship that only withered through time and distance after we both had returned to New Zealand. In all of those
    two years Fred was a very humble and decent person, not afraid to share his mind when someone had been wronged. We served together from 1971 to 1973, and it is only today I have learned of his passing, when something on television reminded me of Fred, and I decided to give him a phone call. Fred was a man of integrity, and those who knew him will remember him with respect, as I do. Frederick Crabbe, Rest In Peace.
