John Elliott


John recently spent 11 days in hospital. He’s now fitted out with new titanium skull and new scalp from a spare bit of skin taken from his back. John has been suffering from melanomas for a while and hopes this substantial treatment will cure the problem. He hopes the titanium wont rust.




Barry Sharman.


Unfortunately, Barry has been diagnosed with Pancreatic and Liver Cancer. He is in a lot of pain with morphine helping him at the moment and has indicated that, in his words, “I’m stuffed and I don’t think I have very long at all.” Barry was a loadmaster on the Caribou and did two tours of Vietnam, one from Nov 1965 to July 1966 and from Oct 1968 to July 1969.




Gary Martin.


“Sticky” Glew, tells us that Gary Martin, ex RAAF pilot, recently had a serious fall from his balcony and did himself a fair bit of damage. "Around a 3 metre drop I believe. He thought he could still fly but forgot the aircraft".


He was in Royal North Shore and was then moved to a Rehab Centre in the Mona Vale area. He fractured his pelvis in a lot of places and also damaged the hip replacement he had had done a few years ago, as well as other fractures to ribs etc. He was a sick and sorry boy but his injuries are not life threatening and necessary repairs are being carried out to get him serviceable again.




Jim Grant


Ray Thompson advises us that Jim Grant is not all that well. Ray says, “Jim was a little bloke and a gentleman. He was an Lac Clerk Admin in the Orderly Room of the Apprentice Squadron, Frognall back in 1960 when I first met him.  He moved with the Apprentices when they transferred to Laverton.  I'm sure a lot of ex RadTech apprentices would remember him.” 


Jim’s daughter Kim got in touch with Ray and said “I am Jim's daughter. Dad is not well. He was diagnosed with bowel cancer last December and after a couple surgeries and many complications post op, we learned about 5 weeks ago that the cancer has spread. Unfortunately, Dad has taken a steep decline and may not be with us for very much longer. Please keep him in your thoughts.”
