Hello Peter,

Here is a picture card of Ron wearing his Order of Australia Medal which I understand is the equivalent to C.B.E.


Ron received this award for his services to sport in Australia and it was fully deserved and we in the football community felt the loss greatly as he was quite fit and playing golf regularly until being struck down with  alzheimer,s disease.

Another old Pompey player who lives in Perth and and has also been stricken is Vince Radcliffe, I believe that he played about the same time as Ron but suffered a broken leg.

Not being a Pompey supporter I can however sympathize with you in the troubles that they are going through at present but I feel sure that they will survive .

Hope that you receive this information because although i have used the computer for many years now

i still find some things a bit of a mystery.

Best regards,

Bob brown
