Pilot Officer Ronald William BETTS ,
1947 - 1971

Tribute by Tony Cox 8 Platoon 3 RAR 1971

I would like to point out that Ron Betts died supporting 8 (Not 2) Platoon Charlie Company 3 RAR. I recall the event daily as I was there. Our sympathy has always been with Ron and FO David Freeman who crewed that day. David Paterson, the OC of 8 Platoon was KIA in that event also. David Feeeman, please contact the webmaster of www.3rar.com with regards to 3 RAR reunion proposed for October 2011.
