Superintendent Henry Joseph (Bunny) Storer.
Born 23rd May 1938 Bunny served with his beloved 58th Infantry Battalion in the Citizen Military Forces from an early age. At 21, he joined the Victoria Police Force and went on to serve in various branches of the force including Mobile Traffic, the CIB and as an instructor at the Police Academy. A one time member of the Police Pipe Band he rose to the rank of Superintendent.
As a boy Bunny developed a long and sustained interest in military history and especially the collection of police medals and insignia. Bunny's research prowess, attention to detail and enthusiasm was widely known in Australia and overseas.
Bunny had a vast knowledge of military history and related matters in general and boasted an outstanding collection of police memorabilia. He would invariably delight and amaze friends and colleagues at Branch meetings and activities with his huge bank of knowledge which included technical detail and anecdotal information always meticulously researched and admirably presented.
Bunny Storer is much missed by all in the Society and leaves a large gap in our collective knowledge of Australian military and police history. All members of the Society extend their condolences to Bunny's wife Jill, his daughter Tina and son David.
