Hug, Otto Bernard (Bunny) (1886–1950)

Mr. Otto Bernard Hug, of 8 Surfers' Parade, Thirroul, died at the Bulli Hospital on Thursday.

He was sixty four years of age and is survived by his widow— Mrs. Susie Mabel Hug.

The late Mr. Hug was born in Sydney and later served with the 45th Battalion in the 1st World War. He then moved to the British Solomon Islands where he was a coconut planter for some thirty years.

When war broke out, however, he returned to this country to live at Thirroul.

Last Friday the funeral left A. S. Cole's Bulli chapel for the Woronora crematorium, Sutherland.
