VALE: Warrant Officer Noel Clarence Haggett 1925 - 2014

We recently bid farewell to our comrade in arms,Warrant Officer Noel Clarence Haggett 433591, who proudly and faithfully served his country during the Second World War as a member of the Royal Australian Air Force.

Noel enlisted on April 24th, 1943 and served full war time service with distinction until he was honourably discharged on January 18th, 1946. 

Noel saw postings with 3 Wireless and Gunnery School at Maryborough; Air Gunnery School at West Sale; 11 Personnel and Despatch Centre at Brighton; 10 Squadron at Mt Batten and the RAF Station at Beccles in the United Kingdom. 

Warrant Officer Haggett was awarded the 1939-45 Star, Atlantic Star, Defence Medal, the War Medal 1939-45 and the
Australian Service Medal 1939-45. Truly a great record in the service of one’s country.

Noel was a life member of Bexley RSL sub Branch and on behalf of the President and Members of our organisation, I extend to his family, his sons Geoff and Garry and daughter-in-law Suzin, his daughter Pam and son-in-law Graham, his grandchildren Matt and Zoe, his sister Val and to all his extended family, friends and loved ones, our very deep and sincere sympathy.
