STATEMENT BY THE PRIME M INISTER, THE HON. P.J. KEAT IN G, MP

DEATH OF SIR EDWARD DUNLOP

It is with great regret that I note the death of Sir Edward Dunlop, AC, CMG, OBE, an outstanding Australian.

Sir Edward typified many of the qualities which Australians p rize. He was courageous, determined, humble and, above all, ever generous in helping those who needed help.

His "War Diaries" proved an outstanding success on being published, but his stature in the community stemmed not from his words but from his deeds.

Renowned for his efforts to help his fellow Australians in time of war, Sir Edward will also be remembered for his work for the survivors of war and their families, and for his medical contributions to nations across Asia, most notably Sri Lanka, Malaysia and especially Thailand.

Sir Edward was admired, even beloved, of many. To have gathered as many friends as Sir Edward did in his life is a tribute beyond any that I can offer.

I extend, on behalf of a nation grateful for his work and his life, my condolences and sympathy to his family.
