  1. Max Gabriel (former AFP member)

    It is sad to review the AFP Wall of Remembrance and see so many names of members that I worked with over my time with the AFP and former Commonwealth Police. May they all rest in Peace.
    I am now residing in the Philippines and several years ago I was informed that a close colleague, with whom I worked with In Brisbane in the 70’s, Lionel Claydon had passed away here in the Philippines. I do not see his name on the Wall. I do not have the exact date of death or any other details, however he was the subject of an email despatched through Headquarters to Queensland members.

    • AFPFMA

      Thanks for bringing this to our attention Max, Lionel is now listed on our Wall of Remembrance
