Sunset Call Moth Tom Dix and Moth John Ridgway

With great sadness, Cape Western has to inform of the passing to Higher Service of two of our elder brethren.


19534 Moth Tom Dix of Komesho Shellhole on Saturday 24 February

19522 Moth John Ridgway of Pip-Ack Shellhole on Monday 26 February


At the time of his passing, Moth Dix was the oldest living member of the Dugout and still attended his Shellhole’s Christmas function during December.

Moth Ridgway was a recipient of the Certificate of Merit and a great contributor to the cause of Mothdom over an extended period.

Both Comrades will be missed by those who had the pleasure of knowing them.

Rest in peace brother Moths
