Vet’s service on board
RON Sheppard’s name is now where it belongs.
Missing from the honour board at the Heathcote RSL for many years, his name has finally been engraved into the wooden board.
Mr Sheppard served with the navy in Vietnam and joins other Heathcote service men and women on the RSL honour board.
‘‘We congratulate Ron on his service and as an RSL we are deeply sorry to Ron and his family for this mistake,’’ Heathcote RSL’s Alan Hough said.
‘‘It was simply an oversight and we are glad to have his name up there. We also thank Ian Ellis from Max Ellis Signs Bendigo for coming out and engraving Ron’s name.’’
