Robert (Bob) Lyndon

Bundaberg Rowing Club, then Cairns Rowing Club and finally Toowong Rowing Club (QLD)

Jack Pritchard in his book Rowing in Queensland provided the following tribute to Bob.

Bob Lyndon, an Honorary Life Member of the Q.A.R.C., passed away shortly before the A.G.M.. Bob had been Chairman of the Brisbane D.R.A. for many years, manager of Queensland King's Cup crews and a boat race official at the Empire Games and the Olympic Games, and a great worker for the sport. He had competed for Bundaberg, Cairns and Toowong clubs during his rowing career and would be sorely missed in many centres.
