VALE: Major General William Brian ‘Digger’ James AC, AO (Mil), MBE, MC, Order of St John
It is with deep sadness and regret that we notify our members and friends of the passing of our Patron Major General ‘Digger’ James on Friday evening of 16 October 2015.
Major General James was the Association's valued Patron for the past 10 years and his knowledge and guidance during this time cannot be understated. He was involved in a number of Association projects the most notable being 'The Waler Memorial' in Tamworth and of course the Australian Light Horse Memorial and 'the Park of the Australian Soldier' in Beersheba, Israel.
We send our sincere condolences to his wife Barbara and their family.
He will be greatly missed by not only those who knew him but those his life impacted on.
Rest in peace Sir.
ALHA National President
