Message "Lonsdale" had the main building on Beach Rd with the boozer/ galley/ accommodation across the road one back form Beach Rd & the watering hole near the blocks was the Graham Family Hotel. I was there from Jan 71 to April 72 attached to SOAP Team. Ron Hankinson was the Chief Nuts & Bolts :P

Message An update for anyone knowing CPOETS Scott Wilson. They are flying him to Melbourne to have an operation(the long awaited one) that will allow him to breath with out the aid of a machine. By doing this he will also be able to talk once again. This operation is scheduled for: Fly over on the 10 Dec and operation 11 Dec.
Not bad since they said he would only survive either 2 days,2 weeks or 2 months this time last year

Message Very sad to hear of the passing of an old shipmate "Snow" Larkin. Remember the days well of "snow" working the canteen on Melbourne where I chucked in a helping hand when I could. Mackas and Goffas by the truckload and "snow" continued on in his own unfazed manner. He will I am sure meet his old shipmates like Geoff Lenihan, Dickie Steingrube and many others. He will be sorely missed and my condolences to Anna. I recall "snow" was raised in Appin and I was raised a little further down the track in Bowral. Rest in Peace old mate.

Message I was glad you had been told of my husband's death -John Patrick " Snow " Larkin - but I was upset he had been decommissioned from this site. Blue Lawless is keeping everyone informed but hoped to use the site to be in touch with his shipmates because this site was so very important to Snow.I would appreciat it if it is possible for me to log in on behalf of Snow but understand if it is not and will ask Blue Lawless to be my contact.

I want to thank you for this site. Snow loved it and visited it every day. We often enjoyed the videos, jokes and passionate debates rogether. He found shipmates he hadn't seen in years and it was a link to his sailing life that nothing else could give him.

Snow's "squarey" and wife

Message While attending the HMAS QUIBERON reunion at Hervey Bay, Queensland, between 21 - 25 August 2013, we were informed that Max Bean had died. Today I find that I have lost another "greenie" mate, Arthur "Bluey" Furness. I am about to email Tony Gerding (about the next "meet & Greet" on 19 October), in an endeavour to find what happened to "Bluey".
