Condolences Ken Stone

It is with deep regret that all members of the Hong Kong Volunteer & Ex PoW Association of NSW are advised of the death of our our Member, Kenneth Stone, on Monday, 29 July, 2013. Ken Stone was a committed and active Member of our Association, which he joined to honour his brother, Geoffrey, who was killed at Stanley in Battle of Hong Kong in December, 1945. Ken joined the Merchant Navy before coming to settle in Sydney. He became a popular announcer on radio station 2UE in Sydney in the 1950s and later was the first general manager of NBN Newcastle television. He was a regular attendee at Association events and the ANZAC Day March. Ken usually marched twice each ANZAC Day - once with the Merchant Navy and then rejoined the March behind the banner of the Volunteers. A warm personality and a true gentleman, Ken will be very much missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him. Tribute and funeral notice can be found by clicking here.
