ROYAL AUSTRALIAN NAVY COMMUNICATIONS BRANCH ASSOCIATION

The Bravo Zulu Project
 

In 2009 David Ruffin and I kicked off a research project we had long discussed. Noting that there is NO complete list of honours and awards bestowed on Australian naval people, we decided to compile one. We were not making just another list: we were researching and writing the stories behind the awards to tell the intended general readership why every recipient got his or her gong.

Nearly six years later the end of the project is in sight with over 3,600 awards identified and verified and some 3,200 stories written up. We are seeing help now to finish it off, asking readers to scan the attached lists of names of the recipients whose stories we have not been able to complete through lack of information.

If you spot YOUR name or know the whereabouts, contact details or have information to offer on ANY of these RAN personnel I ask you to make contact with the Bravo Zulu Team as follows:

· For Seamen, contact Paddy Torrens at rolandtorrens@internode.on.net
· For Engineers, contact Terry Feltham at terryfeltham@gmail.com
· For Supply/Logistics, contact Les Roberts at lesroberts22@yahoo.com.au
· For all others, contact Ian Pfennigwerth at pfennigs1@bigpond.com

We would sincerely appreciate any assistance you can provide to help us complete this massive research project.
