5715691 LOCKE, Kimberley William "Hippie."
21 July 1947 - 5 December 2018.

Kim LockeG’day Gents, It is with sadness that I advise that our mate Kim 'Hippie' Locke of 8 Platoon C Company passed away yesterday, 5th December 2018 at a nursing home in Mandurah, Western Australia.

Hippie had been resident in the facility for over ten years, after suffering a series of strokes and other illnesses. Terry Major and Alan McNulty from the 5RAR Association had visited Hippie, and had shared many memories with him. He always had a smile on his face.

May I ask that if anyone has any photographs of Hippie in Vietnam, or any stories about him, please forward these to me as soon as possible. Another Tiger stands down. We acknowledge and thank him for his service.

The Funeral Cortege for Hippie will assemble at the Main Entrance of Freemantle Cemetery for a Cremation Service on Tuesday 18 December at 10:00 hours.
