Qld Djinnang Association.


The Djinnang Association held their Annual General Meeting/Get Together on the 28th May, 2011 at the upstairs conference room at the Public Service Club in Brisbane.


As usual, they had an excellent turn up with 105 people coming from far and wide to the afternoon event. This is an annual event and they get these numbers every year and should be congratulated.


Doors to the bar opened at about 1.30pm and the club provided hot and cold nibblies. At 4.00pm, the bar was temporarily closed, a big moan went up and the AGM got underway.


All committee positions were declared vacant and Ron Faulkner said he’d had enough and wanted a demotion. Nominations were then called for President, Treasurer and Secretary. After promising to buy everyone a beer, Mick Lawson was unanimously elected as Mr President, John Carruthers was elected as the new Treasurer and how could the Association work efficiently without Alison Cridland who was unanimously re-elected as Secretary.


With the officers re-elected for another year, it was time to elect the senior NCO’s. Alyn Hawkes, Brian Webb, Ernie Gimm and Ron Faulkner (who decided he didn’t want to be an ERK after all) were all promoted and as there were no appeals, the positions were declared.


Some of the old blokes, Ron Bellert, Rex Raph and founding members Col “Limpy” Mallett and Allan Clissold were made life members.


The outgoing treasurer, Ron Faulkner, reported a balance in kitty of $15,376.00 with income of $2,502.00 and expenses at $1,326.00. The Investment account has $10,866.00 and has earned interest of $651.00 as at 28th May 2011. The Association has 82 Perpetual Members.              


At 4.30pm, the President closed the meeting, reopened the bar to a huge cheer, tossed $300 on the counter and everyone got back to telling huge porkies.




Dear God,


Please send some clothes for those nice ladies in daddy's computer who don't have any.....





Some of the troops got together on the night before the AGM/Reunion to plot and to scheme and to have the odd coldie or six!!

Apologies to the blokes we couldn't name.



Two friends are fishing near a bridge. Suddenly a Hearse and two Funeral Cars go over the bridge so one of the men stands up, takes off his cap and bows his head. When the cars have gone he puts his cap back on, sits back down and carries on fishing.  His mate turns to him and says," Dave, that's one of the nicest most respectful things I've ever seen."  Dave replies "Well we were married for nearly 20 years... "

A thorn between two roses??


Gavin, not content with one lovely lady, fancied himself and thought he’d try his luck with two.


Trish and Bernie are sisters, Trish joined the Army and is still serving up near Toowoomba in the Sigs mustering, whereas, Bernie, who had the smarts and would rather fly than walk, joined the RAAF and was on No 4 ComsOp Course back in 1977

What a Beautiful Day


My face in the mirror

Isn't wrinkled or drawn.

My house isn't dirty.

The cobwebs are gone.


My garden looks lovely

And so does my lawn.

I think I might never

Put my glasses back on.
