Message Well another great reunion has come to an end ... bring on the next.
I wish to extend my heartfelt thanks to the organisers of the Ballina Reunion for the 2010 bash, a fantastic event in every way.
I had the opportunity to re-establish ties with many people who I hadn't seen in over 20 years and two who had been MIA for 32 years. Sadly some of them have not been too well during recent years but they were there with smiles on their faces and enjoying the moment. One of my long time mates whom I spent Saturday afternoon with walking through the Maritime Museum reminded me of our runs ashore in some of the hell holes of the world, each of us guarding each others back to ensure we all got home safely, it all came so naturally and without us having to ask for it. That's just what we did voluntarily as we were looking after our brothers. We were, and are still, family.
Thank you all for making my weekend so enjoyable and memorable. I love you all.

Message Ex Greenies Hec hart, Darby Ashton and myself recently visited Hong Kong and Singapore to revive our memories. At Sembawang Dockyard we were shown through the RAN facilities by Lt Cdr Rachel Thompson RAN, the RAN Liaison Officer. The staff are a bit short of historical photos and they would welcome contributions of photos that represent the RAN and the dockyard that could be displayed by them.

[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.
