I knew John Allen Garth during the period between 1982 to 1993. When I met him he worked at CIG as the National Security Manager. He had already left the force for some time. He mentioned he was in charge of Wollarah. His close friend and one time partner was Allen Whittaker. Allen passed away 2 yrs later than John. John was a very interesting character with a sharp intellect and a hawk eye for detail. I’m richer by far for having known him.
