Hope you are comfortable Max.

Message Hi,

Are there any Greenies out there with photos of the insides of the Ikara Guidance Equipment rooms? Or of the console in the Ops Room?
Or a Missile launch.
We may have been shot at the time for taking them, but I think we're pretty safe now!! :lol:

Message Question without notice;
What impact does DFRDB have on a person receiving the aged pension, as I am heading towards the big 65 (another 3 years actually)thought I find out early. I thought centerlink would be able to answer this question but the machine didn't compute.
Regards
John L.

Message We totally enjoyed our recent cruise on the Pacific Pearl. Many thanks to those who organised and participated in the event. Once again we got to renew long dormant acquaintances, one in particular for me from 1976.
If the buzz about another cruise in a couple of years time gathers momentum, please count me in.

Message Another great day in Adelaide on Saturday and 29 of South Australia’s finest Greenies plus 2 visitors from the east made a total of 31 attendees at the Adelaide Meet & Greet. All the “usual suspects” were in attendance with Trev McKerlie making his usual 300+Km round trip to join us.
Those who went on the reunion cruise regaled us with many stories that were just too hard to believe. They couldn’t possibly have drunk that much and I don’t believe that the Pacific Princess pitched and rolled as much as they said it did. No stories of seasickness though.
Ian Benier from Victoria was in town for a Car Club meeting and a catch up with his new grand-daughter and found time to join us. Just shows you how egalitarian we are in SA, allowing “Mexicans” to join our Meet & Greet.
Noel “Shiner” Wright (CPOETP ’66 – ’91) was in Adelaide for a JR reunion and took time out to join us as well.
Plus we had a new face join us. Danny Durward ex-CPOETW and now CMDR WE is in Adelaide working on the AWD project. We hope Danny will become a regular at future Meet & Greets.
Those in attendance were...Ian Benier, Wally Birch, John Bolton, Gene Boron, Mick Cain, Roy Collins, Kim Daw, Danny Durward, Alan Fletcher, Doug Haskings, Darkie Henwood, Jeff Howlett, Rock Hudson, Bob Kearvell, Mark Loram, Mal Magor, Chris McConville, Trev McKerlie, Mick Parker, John Phillips, Pottsy Potterat, Les Radford, Geoff Salkeld, John Saywell, Ian Short, Ed Skubula, Spotty Spotswood, Gordon Stringer, John Trigge, Neil Walton and Noel Wright.
A total of 19 apologies were received. The reasons were many and varied, ranging from overseas, interstate, work, family birthdays, start of the bowls season, and a wedding in Zimbabwe! But the prize goes to Alan Tassel who rang me at the Naval Association to tell me that he was about go diving somewhere on the Barrier Reef and just thought he’d let me know that he wouldn’t be able to make it. Thanks Al!!
Apologies were received from...Ron Beaumont, Gary Blake, John Bushell, Jock Colligan, Orm Cooper, Maurie Davey, Grant Demedde, Geoff Harvey, Ray Kemp, Gary Lang, Tony Mackereth, Blue Newton, Terry Norman, Mal Parrington, Chris Rowe, Alan Tassel, Jack Van Eyck, Rob Vanagelis and Graham Watson.
