It is with a heavy heart I regret to inform members of the Passing of Don Page.
Don Page was part of the heavy furniture of 31st Bn. – Always Solid & Reliable. Always steady as she goes – with that smile of his, no matter what chaos & panic was on. – Always there to turn to, – AND Always there to offer help in any way.
Both Don & his wife Edna had been unwell for some time, & were both living in a Nursing Home in Townsville. We also learned that Edna had also passed away a few weeks ago. This is so sad.
Don’s Funeral was on Friday 14th August 2020, making it almost impossible to get up to Townsville at this stage due to COVID-19.
DON PAGE will be remembered fondly by all who new him. – Rest in Peace Mate. TONY
Emails of condolence and support were received from members who had served with Don or knew of his service to the Battalion. Two well known members of the association who served with him were Chris Pyke and George Stanger whose messages are included below
CAPT Don Page was my first Coy Comd (B Coy 31 RQR) when I enlisted in 1966. He was a good bloke. Very sad,
