CONDOLENCES TO BEWES FAMILY

12 July 2010

The Nationals Member for Lismore Thomas George, on behalf of his electorate, wishes to express his condolences to the family and friends of Private Nathan Bewes who was tragically killed on duty in Afghanistan last Friday.

The 23-year-old soldier was raised in Murwillumbah and attended Mount Saint Patrick College.

“Today I spoke to Nathan’s father Gary and extended my heartfelt prayers and sincere sympathy to him and his wife Kaye, their daughter Stephanie and Nathan’s partner Alice Walsh,” said Mr George.

"Our community has lost a fine young man - a man who was doing what he loved and has given the ultimate sacrifice for his country."
