Hey Swampy..I hear we've created AFL history as the only team to be minor premiers and then zip6 the next year !! Should be some silverware for that mate.. roll eyes (sarcastic)

Doug Send E-mail Tuesday, 3 May 2016 18:22
Last time they won a game was August last year, the wheels fell off in July. I thought we'd get the points v Carlton, now I'm looking forward to the Bombers game for first points. We should get first draft picks next year, which was probably Rosco's plan all along.

Well said Bones...Cruel people are saying the only difference btwn the Dockers and a square is that a square has 4 points !!...Not nice..

You think Freo can get through the season pointless?

Ben Send E-mail Monday, 16 May 2016 23:59
Reckon they're in for a completely pointless season Doug, altho Ross can probably take some positives out of it !!

Heard a buzz the Dockers are changing their name to the Nortons...as in, nought n ten !!..Improved corporate image or some such thing Doug...

I play social cards with non-naval people. We were playing 500, no trumps were trumps when different views on how to play the Bird came up. My view is that if you haven't played the Bird on a suit then you cannot introduce the Bird later and call it the suit you didn't play it on before. Other people said you could play it on any suit when you liked. Any thoughts on the subject????

Hey Doug..We're climbing the ladder without even winning a game...WHAT A TEAM !!

Doug Send E-mail Tuesday, 12 April 2016 23:31
Other than Carlton, Brisbane and Essendon, I can't see where we're going to get the points, and Rosco just got a new 3 year contract

Just reading on the Navy History dit re a bloke who went troppo on the Hawk during the Indon rubbish and let a few rounds go from a submachine gun when he'd had a few ashore. I think Rod Beckinsale was a sparker onboard...wonder what ever happened to the offender ? I think he was an LEM and discharged psycho !!

The Australian footie season starts next Thursday 24 March, I'm predicting the Tigers by at least a lazy 45 points

Bottom of the ladder, can only improve from there. Looks like their form slump from last year has carried over.

Currently doing some volunteer work at the Qld maritime museum. They have the Diamantina original hull designation K377 hoisted on the flag deck. I was under the impression that this should be the ships international call sign as in say VKCU for the old Stalwart. Can someone please clarify and if I am correct let me know what Diamantina's call sign was. (Former POETC)

Dave Sutherland Send E-mail Monday, 8 February 2016 02:22
Diamantina's International Call Sign is VMFB. For further information, go along the menu bar to V/S Store, click to reveal drop down menu > Ships Callsigns. The most excellent resource is the work of Sandy McNab, who has spend years pulling it all together. (Ex- CPOSY)

Dave Sutherland Send E-mail Monday, 8 February 2016 03:06
Further to the above. A ship’s International call sign is generally flown when leaving or entering harbour. Given that the ‘Tina is a static display (in dry dock), I suggest what is flown would be determined locally. Any other reader may wish to add their comments

Who watched the Hird interview? Still so many questions to be asked and answered. Who okayed the injections?, who shredded the records?, why the off-site injections if he thought it was ok. Seemed to me that Hird is playing the victim card, (the AFL set him up) and trying to re-write history. The interviewer was pretty easy on him too, softly, softly.

I reckon Chicken Man, (the greatest crime fighter the world has known would) and the half million footie fans who think Hird, Dank, Charters, Alavi, Robson, etc have shamed the AFL and blotted the Bombers such that they will not live it down.

Hi, I'm a 'birdie' interloper although not here without reason. Firstly, the compliments of the season to you all.
Secondly, my brother in law William James Allen ON R93001 joined as a Leeuwin JR on 09JUL60 and rose to the dizzy heights of LRO before transferring to the Linguist branch in JAN66. I believe Bill paid off in FEB70 after which he earned a place at Latrobe University, Melbourne on a scholarship and completed a law degree which he practiced in the East and then the West where he was also a dab hand at training and driving Pacers which he also owned one of. Bill now lives in country Victoria. Bill would visit his sister and I at Nowra where he & I would play chess, with a crock of Port and cigars until after the milkman came during the morning watch.
The third reason for this 'short' note is to welcome any and all to my facebook site which has a membership of 2000+ and including some ex RO/WRRO's.
Fair winds and following seas, Aye. Dutchy.
PS: Patience lads, had to do this again after I timed out. I'm not as fit as I was having had Parkinson's Disease now in the 20th year. You did it to me again!

Sad to read of the passing of CRS Billy Lowe.HE joined the Quadrant from Queenborough in Far East in 1956 and from day one he insisted ,tidiness.neatness and that it was not inhuman to have a sense of humour .Quadrant achieved a lot in 1956..there is no doubt that these results came about by a thoughtful and inspiring leadership by Bill... no gf on s/s....wonderful guy ,,,
