  1. Uncle Jack will always be remembered as a remarkable gentleman. His extraordinary achievements as a “Rat of Tobruk” are well known. However he was also a loving uncle with a lively sense of humour, kind and had grace and dignity. His favourite song was “The Holy City”. I will always remember him when I perform this song.
