In Tribute To Bert Le-Merton
Bert’s family have kindly requested a donation be made to Soldier On in lieu of flowers
Sergeant Bert Le-Merton, the 103-year-old WWII veteran passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, on the evening of the 6th of December.
The Rat of Tobruk was an inspirational figure, who's selfless actions and unwavering care for those in need helped to further the conversation of veteran welfare.
The Soldier On team will hold true to Sergeants Bert's example. We will hold true to his unwavering commitment to our veteran community. Together, we will help prevent veteran suicide.
Our March On patron, a self-proclaimed “ordinary bloke”, that achieved extraordinary things in service of his fellow Australians.
Thank you for your service. Rest in Peace Sergeant Bert.
