A farm hand before enlisting on November 7, 1967; Private Drummond was a forward scout when on May 30 1969, whilst on patrol, he was killed by an accidental discharge.
A Mate remembers:
"I will never forget the moment we ' lost' Andy. It was gut wrenching, difficult to accept. If anyone was bullet proof in 4 Platoon it was Andy.
Andy was one of the most popular members of B Company. Many blokes relied on him to get them home in one piece after a heavy night out."

"RIP Mate."
