  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.

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