Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

At the special request of a Viet Nam veteran, this death notice is hereby being relayed to you and all military veteran personnel listed in my computer address book.

Gunner Kevin Forde, late of 161 Battery, and a Vietnam Veteran died of Agent Orange related cancer yesterday at Waikato Hospital.

Funeral details are not known at this time, however Kevin was a native of Wellington and died whilst on hospital, so please keep your eyes peeled for death notices in the Dominion Post.

The last time I saw Kevin was at the 1996, 161 Battery Reunion in Palmerston North, and I understand that in more recent years he had been very active in the RSA in the Wellington/Johnsonville area.

Please give this email your widest promulgation via your own email loops. Thank you.


Mike Subritzky is a Viet Nam veteran and a retired captain of the Royal New Zealand Artillery.
