Mr. Reginald William Fremlin, an outstanding personality in livestock circles, died in the Mullewa hospital, Western Australia, on 14th September, at the age of 80. He was born in New South Wales but it was as the result of his association with Western Australia's Murchison district, of which he was one of the pioneers, that he became a prominent figure in the pastoral industry. After being manager of Yuin Station, Pindar, W.A., for some years he took over as general manager of Murgoo, Narryer, and Tibradden, all owned by Messrs. Atkins Bros., and retained this position until his retirement.

A staunch believer in good quality stock the late Mr. Fremlin was instrumental in having successful sheep and cattle studs established at Murgoo and Tibradden. He was recognised as one of the foremost sheepmen in Western Australia and as such was one of the judges of the Royal Agricultural Society. He was president of the Mullewa Agricultural Society and also of the Victoria District Agricultural Society when that body held shows at Geraldton. In addition, he was actively associated with the race clubs in Geraldton, Mullewa, and Yalgoo and was one of the small but enthusiastic party which initiated the famous Murgoo picnic races. For many years he organised its programme.

Mr. Fremlin possessed a natural ability in the handling of livestock and was an acknowledged authority on everything associated with station management. His advice was readily available to those who sought it and his great pleasure in recent years was to help newcomers.
