Seems like some are having trouble accessing the photos.

There is not meant to be a link between my post and the photos. The post alerts you to a bulk upload of photos and you have to find them yourselves.

To do that go to the Gallery menu tab and pick any of the menu tabs under it depending what you want.

For the Fourth Class tab, there are no photos under the root level – there are about 6 or 7 sub menus under the Fourth Class tab and that is where those photos are. The sub menus will appear to the right, the left or underneath, the Fourth Class menu tab, depending on what sort of computer/ipad/phone device you are using.

I hope this helps – if not let me know. Cheers

More Photos

Thanks to Maurie Meecham for 30 or so photos. Some are better copies of previous ones, but most are new ones. Not surprisingly, there is an emphasis on Gallipoli Company, rugby and athletics. And of course the odd party shot.

They are spread over the appropriate menu headings as best I can but if they are in the wrong spot, please someone let me know.

Reunion 2002 Video

Just to let you know there is a new video of the Duntroon House barbeque courtesy of Rod Allan. It seems there is very little audio/video of the 2002 reunion around, so if I’m wrong, please send it in. It’s a good chance to see how good your filing system is!!

You’ll find the video under the Reunion 2002 tab on the menu.

There’s a New Menu Page on the Website

A new menu item has been added to our website. It is a page of miscellaneous memorabilia and documentation from 1969 – ’72. Thanks very much to those who have contributed and hopefully it may remind others of a photo, doco or whatever that you may have lying around that you may want to share. If anyone needs a hand to scan things, just give me a call.

You’ll find it under Gallery – down near the bottom – called Doco and Memorabilia . .

Oh, and by the way – is anyone else bringing a special tipple to the Reunion??

SE Qld/Nth NSW Lunch 7 Sep

Message from Maurie Meecham,

David and Trish Cran are passing through Brisbane so I thought it would be a good opportunity for our next lunch. Mac is away that week so I will coord the day.

David is on the organising committee for the Reunion in December so it will be a good opportunity to ask him any questions and to provide feedback on what is already published. 

In view of the success of the last lunch at The Ship Inn (Southbank), we will meet there again at 12:30hrs on Wednesday 7th September. Meals and drinks are ordered individually over the bar and I will organise an area for us to sit together as we did last time.

Hope you all can make it. 

Please RSVP to my email, not the website, by the end of the month so I can estimate numbers.

Photos in The Gallery

Keen followers will have noticed that the Gallery has changed a bit. We now have a significantly greater number of photos thanks to some hefty contributions from Graham Huggins, Rod Allan and others, so the 4th Class menu has been split into sub menus to hopefully make it easier to find photos.

But, my memory is pretty hopeless about what year things took place, particularly the field bits – perhaps I was asleep! So if anyone would like to let me know what photos to move to their correct homes, I’m happy to do so – just tell me what to move and where to.

Trivia Update 2

We are getting there! It’s testing the old memory and interestingly, coming up with some different recollections.

The latest version is at the Classmates tab on the menu. I’m happy to keep it going if only we could get some more of the missing links – one persons recollection can solve it for 2 others as well.

1969 Trivia Update 1

An updated Class List is now on the website and many thanks to all those who provided information. I have sent the odd individual note, but please accept this as a general word of thanks. Apologies to those who tried to comment through the website but struck difficulties – let me know or give me a call and together we’ll get to the bottom of it.

So we have nearly 70% completed – once again a plea to all to check the new information, and ad or correct it where you can. You can find the updated list it by viewing the Class List on the Classmates tab of the menu.

A special thanks to Steve Despoges for sending in an original ’69 org chart for Alamein – I’ll put it up in the Gallery shortly.

1969 Trivia . . . .

Just when you thought things were going quiet, here’s something to really get your teeth into!

No, it’s not compulsory, far from it; but some classmates have been wondering if someone else can tell them who their fellow 4th class section mates were. I realise it’s been 53 years and most of us have found more interesting things to fill our heads with, but if you can remember the details, could I’d ask you to put them in the comments box and hit RETURN – and I’ll update the table.

Sorry, but there’s no multi million dollar Nigerian bank account for this one.
