Flags will fly across NSW at half-mast on Friday 4 June as a mark of mourning and respect for Mr Robert ‘Bob’ Fulton.
Most people recognise Bob for his tremendous contribution to Australian sport through Rugby League, but many don’t know that he was also a National Serviceman in the Army and mentor within the ADF.
Bob joined the Australian Army in 1968, serving mainly at the School of Artillery in Manly NSW as a Physical Training Instructor (PTI) and reached Bombardier rank. Bob also served on many HMAS Sydney convoys to Vietnam, mentoring the deploying troops with physical training on the sea journey. He maintained a link to the PTI community at the School of Artillery at Manly for many years, returning often to mentor trainees, and was a positive influence in the lives of young ADF personnel.
Bob’s life will be celebrated at a State Funeral at 10:30 on Friday 4 June at St Mary’s Cathedral in Sydney. Vale Bob Fulton, AM.
