A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, on the 8 June 1965, HMA Ships Parramatta, Duchess and Sydney, rendezvoused and dropped the pick in Vung Tau Harbour with the 1RAR disembarking for the first South Vietnam deployment. 52 years ago, a lifetime

Hey Pierre.. "Quicky Maru" - 1960.. Ronald Francis (Horse) Foale and Francis William Cloudsley (Alf) Bridges were the senior RO's, me n couple others were the OD's. We lived in fear.. Looks like Horse didn't change - he skulked all day in his hammock and didn't even get to the flag deck.. Sorry abt Swans Pete.. GO BLUES.. smile

Sad to hear my old mate Tex Daly cross the Bar. He was on Hmas Yarra with me 1967, worked many shifts with him in MWO.

Hey Swampy...Seems the purple ladies let us down today...hope that's not an omen !! confused

Doug Marsh Send E-mail Tuesday, 7 February 2017 14:57
I looked at the Carlton/Collingwood game for about 10 minutes, but couldn't get interested. Maybe the low scoring indicates a lower standard of play, or maybe the regular AFL grounds are just too big for the ladies to play on. On last year's form, I reckon Freo could lose 6 of the first 7 games, but I have a $100 bet with Charlie Rigg that Freo will win a flag before Carlton, hope so.

Bones Lehmann Send E-mail Thursday, 16 February 2017 00:27
what i would be concerned about with that bet Doug is hopefully in the next few years medical science can keep us alive until we reach 110......cheers

I saw that picture you sent and wondered what the connection was. You should see the "irregularities" the NRL players get up to. Boozie nights, domestic violence, betting on games, fixing games, a little recreational drug use, signing contracts halfway through a season with another club, threatening a referee at a junior game, and at the moment, I think 14 of 16 clubs in the NRL want to give the NRL's CEO the flick.

Hope everyone attending the national reunion has a great time. Remember our mates who have recently departed, far too many and many too young.

In attempting to identify the IPSWICH ships company in July 1986 I've been informed by Mark Bryant & Stephen O'Keefe that the communicator, LSRO Peter (Jack) Jewlachow is deceased. I have no further details.

Go the Doggies...Our turn soon Doug !!

Doug Send E-mail Tuesday, 4 October 2016 18:57
During the lead-up to the game, I saw an amazing stat. Freo was the most injured team in the AFL, 31 players out for a total of 241 games. With those kind of losses, as heroic, mercurial and skillful as they are, the MIGHTY BOYS FROM THE WEST could not defeat the Melbourne Mafia (who still think its the VFL)

G'day Ben,
It seems you have leapt on the Dogs bandwagon after all these years. I was at the Gee on GF day to watch our magnificent victory.
