Brigadier Rex L R Rabett, CMG

Sydney Rowing Club (NSW)

1913 – Interstate Men’s Eight Championship emergency

The following obituary appeared in 1966-67 Sydney Rowing Club annual report.

Rex Rabett, probably better known as "the Brig.", was a vice-president of the club and an active rower until recent years.

He saw action at Gallipoli and was twice mentioned in despatches during the Great War. 

From 1921 to 1926, he commanded the 2nd Division Artillery A.M.F. and from 1926 to 1931 he commanded the 9th Infantry Brigade A.M.F. 

Rex was a most active and able member of the club and one with its interests very much at heart at all times.
