It is with great sadness that I extend my condolences to the family and friends of Tim McCombe OAM.
Tim passed away on Saturday, 31 January 2015, at Bowral District Hospital, New South Wales.
Tim McCombe OAM was a veteran who devoted his time to lending a hand to other veterans and current serving men and women.
A regular soldier himself, Tim served in the Australian Army from 1964 to 1973 in locations including Malaya, Borneo and Vietnam. During the Vietnam War he served as an infantry soldier from May to August 1967 with the 2nd Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment and was severely injured by a mine explosion.
