I wish to advise all units that Frank Yates, longtime member and former Local Manager of the Augusta/Margaret River SES unit passed away on the weekend. Frank was one of the forerunners involved in training across the Southwest and will be missed by all. Frank has asked for an SES Honour Guard at his funeral which will be held at Margaret River on Tuesday the 5th of October at 1000 hours.
