Among the articles is this one from Colin Bale on Marcus Loane’s Masters of the English Reformation:
“Marcus Loane’s Masters of the English Reformation was first published in 1954 and remains in print sixty-three years later.
The long period of the work being in print is a testimony not only to its important focus but also to its readability for successive generations.
The book presents biographical profiles of five key English reformers—Thomas Bilney, William Tyndale, Hugh Latimer, Nicholas Ridley and Thomas Cranmer—showing how they contended for the truth in the period 1516 to 1556. Loane describes the vfie men as ‘Masters’ because, convicted of the truth of the gospel, their contributions were incredibly significant to the cause of Reformation in England.”

Duncan was a long-time member of the Council of the Anglican Church League, becoming an Emeritus Vice President in 2001.
Duncan’s contributions to Council meetings were always cheerful and encouraging. He and his wife Joyce served, often behind the scenes, in working to maintain the gospel-focussed character of the Anglican Church in Sydney.
ACL Chairman Dr Robert Tong remembers Duncan as “a faithful soldier for the Lord”, and former President Dr Bruce Ballantine-Jones says he was “a true servant of the gospel”.
Duncan’s funeral will be at 12:15 pm on Thursday, 6th April at Macquarie Park Crematorium. (Photo taken at the 2005 AGM.)

“The memorial service is being held in London on Monday 13 March at 2:30pm GMT [i.e. early Tuesday morning, Australian time]. We are going to show it at St Thomas’ North Sydney on Tuesday 14 March at 7:30pm. …
those who would like to gather with Ana Ovey at St Thomas’ and participate in the service in this delayed fashion (sing the hymns, pray the prayers, and listen to the sermon by Peter Jensen) would be more than welcome.
There will be a light supper provided (though we have little idea of how many people will be able to come, we will try to provide enough). We would like to send a photograph to Heather Ovey of those gathered if all are willing. Parking is available at St Thomas’.”

If you can’t be there, this is a good reminder to pray for the College.
“Together with a good supply of appropriate photographs, this book gives an excellent coverage not only to Loane’s life but also to the history of the Anglican Church in Australia.”
