Late this afternoon news was posted on Facebook that Stephen Stansfield had passed away after a long illness.

I had a call with him recently after the 70th Celebration in Cooma and he had returned to his home and begun catching up on telephone messages. Stephen was very interested in details of the Land Rovers and people who attended and he said he really missed out not be able to attend. Stephen also spoke about his efforts to have Norma Jean and his very complete medic gear collection preserved by a museum.

This news is very saddening and my condolences to his close friends and family.

RIP.

Stephen was REMLR member number 1.

We have a email quote for a flower arrangement at the memorial service. I sent a photoshop of the arrangement I thought well suited to Stephen (see attached file below) and the local florist is saying they can do it and it will be $150.

Any members who wishes to contribute to the arrangement please send the money to REMLR's normal account using a EFT or Direct deposit and please write in the "Description" window "SSflowers" to aid the book-keeping:

Acc Name: Registry of Ex Military Land Rovers Inc
BSB: 037608
Acc: 553286
Institution: Westpac Bank Tas.

The donations (as a total) for the flowers and the florist's invoice will both appear in the annual treasurer's report.

Thank you in advance.

Here is the arrangement design for Stephen in red and white carnations...
