Message Happy Australia Day - just to let you all know that the Bacchus Marsh Save the Avenue of Honour Group, after over 3 long hard years of fighting, have been victorious and the Avenue is to remain intact. A big congratulations to some patriotic Australians over big business (Mining & Truck Transport)- They are truly worthy of Australia Day recognition. Lest We Forget.

Message While serving on Tobruk in 1959, I was temporarily attached to British Army Pack Mule Battalion in Hong Kong taking supplies up into hills in New Territories. (While Tobruk was away torpedoing herself through after deck-house)
Can anyone let me know how long the few of us were ashore with the British Army Service Corps. Dates would be good to know.
Regards Stevo

Message Just as further update to remind all Pussers and their families to NEVER travel without Travel Insurance. We have been advised by our wonderful travel insurance company CoverMore that the final total of Noelene's claim when she had a major brain hemorrage in USA was $331,550 !!!
They cheerfully (which I think is very important) paid every cent!

Message Received this email from Kevin Drinkwater via Jacquie Clarey. Any help anyone could give
would be appreciated.
In the hope of helping Helen Nash (widow of LCDR John Nash), I am trying to post this as widely as possible.

Received the following e-mail from Helen Nash who is working hard as a
Welfare Office since her husbands death. After reading the email if
you have any information that may help Helen please contact her at:
jj1andhelen at bigpond dot com

“I am seeking assistance with a submission I
am attempting to put together regarding the deaths of Navy
servicepersons which may be due to time served within Vietnam. The
subject was raised at the recent RSL Qld. Congress and I have been
detailed off by the proposer to attempt to provide figures to the
Queensland Veteran’ s Affairs Committee, of which, I am the Welfare
representative, for presentation to the Minister of Defence, who did
request information regarding this.

The terms of reference are fairly broad, as follow:
1. Member of the RAN

2. Served within Vietnam territorial waters during the Vietnam
conflict for whatever period of time

3. Has suffered from cancer of any type which proved fatal

4. If any children of the sailor has suffered any birth abnormalities

I am aware that there may privacy issues, however, the Navy is a very
close knit group of people who usually know what has happened to their
shipmate and I do not want names of the personnel, only the numbers.
If the submission is successful, the Government will conduct a further

I am ignoring the DVA requirement of the 30 days need to validate a
claim as contact with toxic material is what is called “patient
dependant” in other words, some will have no symptoms of disease
having had contact but others only have to be within the vicinity to
have an effect, something the pundits flatly refuse to recognise. If
you can assist me with this, I would be very grateful.” Helen Nash

Message Just got back from the final day of 3 days of submissions to a Heritage Victoria Committee which will report to State planning Minister, re; Roundabout in the Bacchus Marsh "Avenue of Honour". It seems National RSL is giving Save the Avenue support. Supporters have been asked to send polite emails to the Victorian Planning Minister asking him to reject the proposal. Those wishing to support us, please email to, matthew.guy@parliament.vic.gov.au , thanks, in memoriam, LEST WE FORGET.

Message The SA Greenies mustered for a Meet and Greet on 18 June. Had quite a good turn up and a good time was had by all. Photos of the young lads...albeit often with grey hair or very little...can be found here.....

Message Crying or very sadHi all, enjoyed M&G at Stella Maris here in Vic.However was dismayed to discover that members were unaware that the Bacchus Marsh Avenue of Honour was under threat of being cut in two in the name of progress & traffic management. Even the local RSL have agreed to the removal of 5/93 year old elm trees to put in a roundabout. The President is ex-pusser. Have a look at FaceBook "Save the Bacchus Marsh Avenue of Honour" site & spread the word. Cheers Geoff Threlfall.
