Wallace Donald provided the following recollection of Ian:
Ian Bailey did work for me and was quite smart. He worked on the Installation of Satellite Earth Station Equipment with me at Moree , etc. Always laconic, quiet, but very competent. He always considered issues carefully and would advocate his viewpoint convincingly. As others have remarked he did enjoy travel; especially to the Philippines. I visited him in his home some years later, about 1990, and met his new wife. At that time he was living in a terrace in Paddington alongside former Sydney Mayor, Frank Sartor.
