  • Thank you Sib for your service to our country so that I could be here today as a distant relative. My late father left me a christmas card that you sent his family that I treasure. Little did you know that your life would be taken after you posted it and before it arrived in NZ. I look at the only photo I have of you as a happy teenager in Dunedin & feel so sad that your life was taken so tragically on board the ill fated Jason as a young man with a great future. I salute you.
