Peter Dunbar

Peter Dunbar was active with Bush Search and Rescue for over 45 years.  He contributed as a searcher, a club delegate and a Field Organiser, a role he performed for over a decade.

Peter was then a Police Liaison Officer until he officially retired at the Bush Search and Rescue 50th Anniversary event on 4 March 2000, at which he was presented a Certificate of Appreciation for his very significant contribution to the organisation over five decades.

Peter was well known in the bushwalking community and a leading member of the Melbourne Walking Club.

Peter died in 2007 aged 80.  Many members of the Police Search and Rescue Squad and Bush Search and Rescue attended the funeral, where many of Peter’s excellent collection of bushwalking photographs were on display.
