Lot of memories came back with the pictures. I was fishing around for material for the July Newsletter of the Hervey Bay Nashos and stumbled on this cache. Thanks for the memories. My experience started with I believe God telling me to shut up about being made the barman for Balcomb Sgts Mess and finished with 18 months in Murray Barracks with the 68/69 intake and the 69/70 intake of chalkies. I got 11 mentions in the Book Chalkes. Hope life has treated you well. God has been good to me.
