I believe we are all still around, John was down Hobart way, Sulli was on the north coast of Tasmania, Doug was up in QLD and I spoke to Don in Adelaide last year. Maybe 2005 we’ll catch up.
Cheers all and if you can fill in any gaps, it would be appreciated.
Re your photie, Tackers was a signalman in those days and was in a T Class with Les Church’s mob.
George Smith was in my recruit class with CCY George Davey as instructor, George got sick and went to hospital and never made it back to R2, he ended up a couple of classes behind R2.
We started out in Moran Division in I block and later they shoved all Communicators into Rankin (Stokers) in J block because of the heavy recruiting of LB’s. Getting and Waller were the other two Divisions. One was full of Starvo’s, Cooks, Stewards (Getting) and Waller all the Dib Dabs, Birdies etc (I think).
George Bracken was the R class Instructor ahead of us, Sully Wop Spoof and co.
Hope that has helped,
