Matt Daley.


The delightful Chrissy Hart (right) is looking for Matt Daley. Chrissy and Matt went through rookies together in '87 and were then both based at RAAF Laverton, she was on the MEDASST course whilst he was at Radschool


If you can help, let us know and we'll pass on the info.  (You lucky duck Matt - tb)     '




Ron Tree.


John Upton is looking for Ron Tree who was from Bowen and who said his old man was the Police Sergeant there. John also says, re Ken "Killer" Bryant, I served with Ken at 1AD, TIMS section. Killer was an ex-appy and was always a good laugh. It’s sad he’s no longer with us.




Ray Arlott.


John Richards got in touch, he says he saw John Elliott’s request in Vol 39 for info on Ray Arlott. JR says Ray, who was a Teleg, was posted to 2 Sqn in April 1967 and go back to Australia early (June 1967). After he had  been at Phan Rang for about a month, he went to the Orderly Room and asked when would he be going back home. The Reply was "You are here for 12 months".  He replied "No, I did not re-engage!" They checked and discovered that Townsville forgot to re-engage him.  He had already signed up with DFAT and was posted to Vientiane to operate the Morse link back to Darwin (RAAF) at Lee Point (VMHA5). After 5.5 years he came back. Ray then went on several DFAT postings overseas as a COMMS Operator and Diplomatic Courier. He now lives in Canberra. I had not seen him for some years, however, I rang him about 20 mins ago. He is happy to have a yarn with you. (We have his phone number and have passed it onto John – tb)




Erni Gimm writes, he says, I had a few beers with Ray Arlott at Back Beach Vung Tau in late 66 or early 67 but for the life of me, I cannot remember the circumstances. I thought he was a civvy then actually. I heard he married a local girl and was working for Foreign Affairs.




Jack Humphries.


Mia Christophersen says Eddie Young sent you a picture of some graduates of the Radio Servicemans Course (1947). I am trying to find some information on a person in that photo, Jack Humphries. I know Eddie mentioned he did not know if many of the men were still with us, but I wonder how I go about finding some information of where people went after their graduation, or whether Eddie knows anything about where Jack went?  Thanks for your assistance and I look forward to hearing from you.


We put Mia’s request to Laurie Lindsay who says “Jack was commissioned and completed OTS and a Basic Engineer Officers' course in 1969. Prior to that I was told that he was the WO in charge of Base Radio at Laverton (in 1968). Apparently, he had three beautiful daughters and spent most of his time trying to keep his troops away from them. You can see a bit more info HERE.


If you can help, please let us know and we’ll pass on the info.
