Hi Keghead
Thanks for the kind words from Ruth and yourself.Didn't realise there was so much to do and how long it takes. Just coming down to earth now with the great support of our boys and grandchildren. Alan and dot and dolly Gary were comforting shoulders to lean on.
Hope your health is improving and treatment is working.
Sylvia

I've just read on the RANCBA website about Doug MANNERS passing away. Doug joined the Parramatta in 76 before out trip up top. He was a great man and have many fond memories of him. I recall Doug stopping my and Steve "Nobby" Norris stepping ashore in Fremantle due to something we did in the Comcen. Funny times. The last time I spoke with Doug was at the RANCBA Reunion in Melbourne. Very sad news indeed. Another good bloke gone. RIP Doug, smooth seas and condolences to his family.

Thank you to the RANCBA and to the communicators who attended Dougs service on 8 may I would like to thank you all for your kind words to myself and my family. We are definitely a breed unlike all others when it comes to expressing our regards for our own. Thank you once again.
Sylvia manners and sons.

Sylvia, I don't know where to start in saying how very sorry I/we were to hear about Doug. I have been hospitalised for the last few weeks with some 'life threatening' nasties and have not had any P/C contact, so was not aware of the sad news. Last time I spoke to Doug, we were discussing having a beer at our next Reunion!! God I'll miss him, and please accept our apologies and condolences for the loss. RIP. Keghead/Ruth

Good day to you all.
Just to let you know I'm still here. I start a session of radium this afternoon hoping to reduce a rather large tumour. I'm managing to get around although a little weak. Great support from family and friends.
Cheers doug

Thanks Laurie, things are going reasonably well but it's a bugger of a thing to have. All the best to you and others, it seems that everyone is having hip or knee replacements lately.

A lot of fuss about Manus lately..I remember a beautiful island paradise with lots of SP..Does anyone remember Mee-am...she of the accommodating nature lol

I stopped there once on Parramatta, TV seems to be pronouncing it a little different to how I pronounce it. Can't comment on Mee-am

Rod Steedman Send E-mail Saturday, 1 March 2014 12:04
You were there in 1970 also Doug Marsh as we were both on HMAS Perth on our way to Vietnam. Stopped a day or so for fuel. I went ashore and had a few beers with an old school mate who was based there, ABME Craig Bogg. Unfortunatley Craig was killed in an accident on Manus before our tour was over so never got to see him again.
