resultant tasks with great success. We wish the best to Mark for his future

last written history. If you have any photo or document from any period of
QUR please allow us to borrow it so it may be scanned. Or even better scan
it yourself and send it to us by email.

Winston Spencer Churchill penned these words, he may
well have had in mind the type of 18th
century soldier scholar that Joel reminded his good
friend and fellow barrister, Richard Galloway, of, with
his penchant for painstaking research and earnest
attention to detail.
Barnett was born the son of Mark and Peggy Barnett on 9
He was educated
at Brisbane Grammar School and Brigadier Rod Hamilton,
prior to his departure overseas, wrote the following:

He was a warm man, generous of spirit, whose life was

In like manner,
Air Vice Marshal David Dunlop wrote the following from
“I am presently
away in the UK and therefore, regrettably, will not be
able to attend Joel’s funeral on Thursday.If it is
appropriate could you please read out the message below.
A Farewell Message from
I first met Joel
when we were at Brisbane Grammar in the 1960s. Although
we were not in the same class, we were both in the
cadets, in my case the Air Training Corps and for
Joel,the Army Cadets. My recollection was that Joel was
always very smart in his uniform –
reflection of his Father’s extensive Army experience. We
Air Force cadets
look good in our hand me down World War 2 vintage
uniforms, but Joel always looked immaculate. In many
ways , Joel was more military than the military, a
characteristic that endured throughout his life.BGS had
its own rifle range set up on the oval using the cliff
face as the butts. There we fired 303s with .22 barrels.
Perhaps this was the start of Joel’s love of shooting
although I suspect that may have come from his Father.
school, we went our separate ways –I joined the RAAF and
Joel continued his association with the Army through
university. It wasn’t until many years later when I was
posted to RAAF Base Amberley that we again met up. As I
am sure many of you would recall, Joel was very involved
with the Army museum at Kelvin Grove and he invited me
to visit.This led to us renewing our friendship and
although we only met occasionally, usually for Anzac day
or dinner in the United Service Club, we did communicate
We found that we
shared an interest in military history and this led to
us exchanging via email, interesting articles, stories,
photos and web site addresses. Joel had the knack of
finding unusual snippets of information on often long
forgotten events. One area of particular interest was
German research during WW2 into advanced weapons and
visit I made to the restored WW2 launching site of the
V2 missile, La Coupole in the Pas de Calais in north
west France, I found a number of books on the post war
program to uncover German secret weapons and to capture
German scientists.Joel was intrigued by these programs.I
suspect he secretly believed in the conspiracy theory
concerning the German nuclear program.
When I visited
Joel in hospital just before I left for the UK, he was
deeply immersed in an old copy of “The Final Battle”
that I had found in an antique store in Burra in South
Australia.Despite his discomfort, he recounted in detail
what he had read of the battle that led to the fall of

farewell my friend. I will miss our conversations on
legal intrigue, military secrets, vintage watches,
shooting pistols, fountain pens and faithful cats.
Although I am many miles away, I will raise a glass old

will be remembered for his many connections, such as
University Regiment – with whom he served from 1968 to
1970 and, thereafter,his membership of its regimental
Servicemen’s Association – South Brisbane Branch -of
which he was a member.
The Returned and
Services League of Australia – whose Salisbury
Sub-Branch’s affairs he presided over.
Shooters Association – whose muzzle- loading division he
helped to found and with whom he participated as a
“black powder shooter” under the nickname of “Duke of
Barracks Historical Society – which, along with Tom
Parslow, myself and others, he helped to found
( as an aside,
it would not be too difficult to imagine that God’s
biggest problem today is keeping the unholy trinity of
Pat Shanahan, Tom Parslow and Joel Barnett from
establishing a military memorial museum in Heaven)
importantly to me, personally,
Battalions Association – of which he was a life member,
a trustee and, between the years 1975 and 1995, its
unsupported, always under-funded and sometimes
forgotten, Joel gave to our Museum a priceless gift of
time, energy and expertise.
I shall miss
you, old friend, but I shall never forget, when we stood
together and polished History’s flickering lamp.
