Message Copied this from another page for Pete McNair's daughter, arranging a dedication service for Pete next month at GI. Pete was a crew member of Perth and Hobart (and other fine ships) and known by many of us here.

Dedication Ceremony for Dad (Peter)

Some of the happiest years of Dads life were in the Navy, so we've asked the Royal Australian Navy to include his details on a dedicated plaque in the Chapel on Garden Island, Sydney.

Please join us for a Dedication Ceremony for CPO Peter (Pete) McNair at the Garden Island Navy Base in Sydney on June 18, 2017 commencing at 1000.

Arrivals to Garden Island requested for 0915-0930. The Ceremony will be followed by a morning tea in the grounds of the Garden Island Clock Tower Centre.

CPO Peter McNair's ashes may also sail past on the HMAS Newcastle at this time.

Here's the Navy Controlled Bit:

Please RSVP and provide car registration details by 12 June to cheriemcnair at gmail dot com .

Parking is available in the South Block Car Park on Cowper Wharf Rd. You may be asked for photo ID as you enter the car park.

All visitors must meet at the entrance to the South Block car park where a Defence member in uniform will escort visitors to the shuttle bus and check off the guest list and view IDs. Shuttle buses run from 9am-10am

Best wishes and thanks
Gayle, Michael and Cherie

Message Have been heart broken by the passing of so many mates. I would like to join this site if nobody minds as I have just discovered it I am on the Shipside grey site and shipmates for cancer.

Message Hi to all the old salts.
I just on the off chance did a search to see if there was a Greenie facebook pagebut only found the one that had some members.
So to maybe encourage a few I just wanted to put it out there that Ken "Dutchy" Vandermolen created a Facebook group for Greenies past and present. Thought it was maybe another way for us to catch up and offer up any thoughts.

Message Just noticed Peter McNair's name on the big switchboard as having passed on 30 May this year, and note from his and relative's Facebook pages that he died of cancer. Sounds like he fought it pretty hard. Unfortunately taking too many of our mates too soon.

Have some good memories of Pete from CDSC and on the Brisbane, and particularly a few inebriated occasions at the Venus Room up the Cross when that fine establishment was in operation.

Smooth seas and fair winds Pete....and a few coldies.
