Statement on behalf of Larcombe family
Jamie Ronald Larcombe was born on the 14th September 1989 at Kingscote Hospital on Kangaroo Island, South Australia.
Jamie went to Parndana Area School where he was loved by all his peers.
He was a community-minded person who was a CFS volunteer, played sport for his local footy club, Western Districts.
His life ambition was to serve his country.
Jamie was a fun, loving individual who loved life and loved to give where he could.
A dedicated brother, son and partner, he could always be relied on.
Anyone who came in contact with Jamie grew to love him for his personality and great sense of humour.
He was cherished by his local Kangaroo Island community, friends, family and his close Army mates, who are now mourning this great loss.
He will always be in our hearts.
As a family we wish to be left to grieve in peace.
Statement on behalf of Mentoring Task Force – Two
Our deepest condolences go out to Sapper Jamie Larcombe's family and friends. He was a trusted sapper, our comrade in arms and our mate.
We will miss him terribly. We have had the privilege of serving with a fine Australian and we will honour his sacrifice by finishing what he helped us to start.
