Message So sad to hear the news that Pop Riley has gone to the Big Switchboard. I served with Pop on Hobart when he was working the SPG-51C and I was in the computer room with Blue Cullen. R.I.P. Pop. Fair Winds and Following Seas

Message We totally enjoyed our recent cruise on the Pacific Pearl. Many thanks to those who organised and participated in the event. Once again we got to renew long dormant acquaintances, one in particular for me from 1976.
If the buzz about another cruise in a couple of years time gathers momentum, please count me in.

Message Another great day in Adelaide on Saturday and 29 of South Australia’s finest Greenies plus 2 visitors from the east made a total of 31 attendees at the Adelaide Meet & Greet. All the “usual suspects” were in attendance with Trev McKerlie making his usual 300+Km round trip to join us.
Those who went on the reunion cruise regaled us with many stories that were just too hard to believe. They couldn’t possibly have drunk that much and I don’t believe that the Pacific Princess pitched and rolled as much as they said it did. No stories of seasickness though.
Ian Benier from Victoria was in town for a Car Club meeting and a catch up with his new grand-daughter and found time to join us. Just shows you how egalitarian we are in SA, allowing “Mexicans” to join our Meet & Greet.
Noel “Shiner” Wright (CPOETP ’66 – ’91) was in Adelaide for a JR reunion and took time out to join us as well.
Plus we had a new face join us. Danny Durward ex-CPOETW and now CMDR WE is in Adelaide working on the AWD project. We hope Danny will become a regular at future Meet & Greets.
Those in attendance were...Ian Benier, Wally Birch, John Bolton, Gene Boron, Mick Cain, Roy Collins, Kim Daw, Danny Durward, Alan Fletcher, Doug Haskings, Darkie Henwood, Jeff Howlett, Rock Hudson, Bob Kearvell, Mark Loram, Mal Magor, Chris McConville, Trev McKerlie, Mick Parker, John Phillips, Pottsy Potterat, Les Radford, Geoff Salkeld, John Saywell, Ian Short, Ed Skubula, Spotty Spotswood, Gordon Stringer, John Trigge, Neil Walton and Noel Wright.
A total of 19 apologies were received. The reasons were many and varied, ranging from overseas, interstate, work, family birthdays, start of the bowls season, and a wedding in Zimbabwe! But the prize goes to Alan Tassel who rang me at the Naval Association to tell me that he was about go diving somewhere on the Barrier Reef and just thought he’d let me know that he wouldn’t be able to make it. Thanks Al!!
Apologies were received from...Ron Beaumont, Gary Blake, John Bushell, Jock Colligan, Orm Cooper, Maurie Davey, Grant Demedde, Geoff Harvey, Ray Kemp, Gary Lang, Tony Mackereth, Blue Newton, Terry Norman, Mal Parrington, Chris Rowe, Alan Tassel, Jack Van Eyck, Rob Vanagelis and Graham Watson.

Message A great time was had by all on the 2012 Pacific Pearl cruise. Ideal for a reunion because of the relaxed atmosphere and plenty of time to socialise. Great idea JB. Agree with the suggestion to hold a Pussers Greenies cruise every couple of years.

Message A big G'Day to everyone. Awhile back we started to canvass the idea of a reunion for the 40th Anniversary of the July '74 intake at HMAS Nirimba. Current thinking is the reunion would be held around the Coolangatta-Tweed Heads area in mid 2014. I'm looking to get the message out to see who is interested - so if you are one of those magnificent specimens of manhood that were in that intake or if you know anyone who was, please contact me/pass on this message. Thanks

Message Scott "Tug" Wilson CPOETS HMAS Perth

Just an update on Tug Wilson.

He arrived back in Australia last week and is now in The Royal Adelaide Hospital. He is being cared for in the intensive care ward.

His spinal injuries have been diagnosed as worse than what the doctors in Spain reported, so things do not look to good for him at present.

Please continue your prayers for him.

:(
