Passing of a war hero

A war hero who piloted a craft that sank a German U-boat before dropping a life raft to save some of the submarine's sailors has died in Mildura.

DUDLEY MARROWS passed away on Monday at the age of 101.

Former Deputy PM TIM FISCHER was among those paying tribute to the war veteran and his actions off the west coast of France in 1943.
