Norman Kerrigan

Mercantile Rowing Club (VIC)

The following obituary appeared in the Club's 1973-74 annual report.

Norman was a lightweight oarsman in the late thirties and although living in Sydney for the past ten years, he retained his interest and membership of the Club until his death in 1973. 

Ill health arising from privations suffered during four years as a prisoner of war in Germany was responsible for his removal to Sydney, but on his occasional visits to Melbourne, he always called at the Club to renew old friendships. 

To his wife, Peg, who accompanied him to many regattas in post war years, we extend our sincere sympathy.
