Djinnang reunion.


The Djinnang annual reunion was held at the Public Service Club in Brisbane on the 25th May 2013 and although the musterings finished many years ago, the members of the Association are still very active and the number that continually turn up year after year, some coming from afar, is a credit to them.

Paddy had long heard the stories of an amazing family tradition. It seems that his father, grandfather and great-grandfather had all been able to walk on water on their 18th birthday. On that special day, they'd each walk across the lake to the pub on the far side for their first legal drink. So when Paddy's 18th birthday came 'round, he and his pal Mick took a boat out to the middle of the lake. Paddy stepped out of the boat and nearly drowned! Mick just barely managed to pull him to safety. Furious and confused, Paddy went to see his grandmother. 'Grandma' he asked, "Tis me 18th birthday, so why can't I walk 'cross the lake like me father, his father, and his father before him?" Granny looked deeply into Paddy's troubled brown eyes and said, "Because yer father, yer grandfather and yer great-grandfather were all born in December when the lake is frozen. You were born in August, ya billy goat!"

A conscience is what hurts when all your other parts feel so good, and;

a clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.



Bob Mietus and Jack Khan.



Then it was time for dinner, training from old kicked in, the troops lined up and filed through the Mess line in an orderly manner.
