[b]Subject:[/b] FW: Petition - Military Superannuation Pensions

[b]From:[/b] Robert Shortridge

Hallo All,
A link to SEN Fielding's web site for the petition on the gross unfairness of current indexation arrangements for Military Superannuation Pensions.
Could I ask you strongly consider adding your name to the petition to show the politicians there are more than just a couple of people concerned about the indexation issue.

Below is a link to a petition being put forward by Senator Steve Fielding on the issue of the gross unfairness of the current indexation arrangements for Military Superannuation Pensions.
It would be great if we could get as many people to sign up as possible. Unfortunately, it seems the only way the government will listen is if we actually prove to them how many people are angry by their shameful inaction on this issue.

Message Herb Sullivan, an ex P rate, has had to withdraw from the Ballina reunion. He has to have surgery for prostate cancer. I am sure that any one that served with Herb would agree that he is a great bloke and would wish him the best outcome. This damn disease seems to be very prevalent for us ex pussers.

Message I just received sad news from Shorty Waterworth that Jim Warriner (GID Tech Services) has passed away last Friday 30th April.
Jim was a very well known and much respected member of the Tech Services Division at Garden Island Dockyard in Sydney. While he wasn't a pussers greenie, he certainly earned his cuff rate amongst the DDG Radar/ NCDS maintainers. I'm sure those who served in FFGs would have known him just as well.
The pussers community has just lost a great friend in Jim, and those of us who knew him I'm sure will be saddened to hear the news.

the number of people in there.I had a 4 hour trip from Hervey Bay.Maybe we will be better organised

Message The following has been posted on behalf of one of our Queensland members:

How do I go about posting the following congratulatory message regarding the advertised meet and greet in Brisbane today? "What a great day not to have a meet and greet at the Irish Club in Brisbane. Today is St Patrick's street march day. Two of us spent over an hour commuting to the Irish Club in the city only to be greeted by about 2000 drunken Irishmen. Did I miss the change of venue message, or were we the only two who not know that the city would be full of Irish revelers. Thanks for a wasted day."

We're very sorry for this mishap - what has happened to our Brisbane "organiser" ?? His email bounces so he's just been added to the 'lost souls' listing.r6w6m

Message It was a busy weekend in Adelaide so the Meet & Greet had some heavy duty competition. We had the Festival of Arts, the Festival Fringe and the Clipsal V8’s. However we still had 32 Greenies turn up with apologies from a further 27. The vast majority of the apologies were due to attendance at the Clipsal V8’s, and there were at least a dozen regulars among them as well, so it could have been a bumper turnout. There was one Greenie who will remain nameless (and he’s never missed a M&G before) who had to attend a Festival of Arts performance. V8’s I can understand, but the Festival of Arts? And of-course Trev McKerlie made his usual 450km round trip to enjoy a coldie with his mates
As regular readers will know, SA Greenies have been great supporters of past Meet & Greets, so it would come as no surprise that the M&G organising committee (that would be Spotty & me) had a meeting and decided to export one of our own to Sydney to shore up the attendance numbers there. Mario McConville took on this enormous task and actually volunteered to stay with McGurk! We haven’t heard from him yet and I haven’t heard his name mentioned in any despatches as yet! We hope he makes it home from this hazardous duty in one piece. I also have it on good authority that Blue Reidy was playing cricket and in the grand final no less. Some of us just don’t/won’t age!
Those in attendance included…..John Bolton, Michael Bornholdt, Gene Boron, Geoff Brown, Roy Collins, Kim Daw, Chris Egan, Les Figg, Fletch Fletcher, Gary Gosden, Norm Holden, Gomez Isumski, Ray Kemp, Bob King, Masher Manson, Trev McKerlie, Blue Newton, Terry Norman, Mal Parrington, Pedro Peterson, John Phillips, Potsy Potterat, Les Radford, Bob Reidy, John Saywell, Spotty Spotswood, Gordon Stringer, Bill Swan, Sam Trigge, Neil Walton, Graham Watson, Mike Witcher.
Apologies were received from…..John Bannister, Ron Beaumount, Dave Betts, Wally Birch, Trev Brown, John Bushell, Mick Cain, Jock Colligan, Orm Cooper, Maurie Davey, Ian Eglinton, Andrew Harrison, Jeff Howlett, Rock Hudson, Gary Lang, Mal Magor, Mario McConville, Bob McLean, Michael Parker, Blue Reidy, Chris Rowe, Geoff Salkeld, Phil Shephard, Glynn Spencer, Bob Stanton, Alan Tassel, Jack Van Eyck.

Message For those who don't know, Ted Jensen passed away a few weeks ago. I served with Ted on Hobart (commissioning crew) and Stalwart. He joined the upper deck and paid off some 4 years ago as a Lt.Cdr. A great guy and a great shipmate. Smooth sailing Ted, you will be missed.
