Alan was affectionately known as “the Commander”, a legacy of his service in the Royal Australian Navy and Naval Reserve.

Aside from his excellence as a coach, he held several administrative positions within the NSWRA and was a keen photographer. His movies of some of his rowing tours remain and provide an excellent record of these tours.
