Vale Lewis Harold Border

It is with great sadness that I reproduce below a death notice which appeared in The Canberra Times, 19 March 2011:

 BORDER Lewis Harold AO, MVO.
Former Australian Ambassador
16.4.1920 - 11.3.2011
At home. A long life, well lived in devotion to his family and service to his country.
Beloved and loving husband, father and grandfather. Privately cremated, at his request.

Lewis Border, with whom I had some dealings when he was Deputy Secretary, Department of Foreign Affairs in the early 1970s, was at The Armidale School (TAS) with my father and shared a room with him and another TAS old boy, Ken James, when the New England University College opened for classes in 1938.

Lewis Border appears at top left of the photograph of the New England University Rugby Team 1939.
