POM,
Saw your comments. Not quite continuous service mate. I was posted from Vungers to Williamtown in October '71 then around March '72 I decided I had had enough and elected to discharge at Pearce in May '72. For about 3 months I bummed around in WA (Pickering Brook and Kalamunda. Picked up a job working for a blasting contractor followed that by builders labourer. Helped to convert an old Tom The Cheap Grocer in Kalamunda to "The Last Drop Wine Bar and Restaurant". When Len Bennet opened the joint, I became a wine waiter (regrettably not for very long). Shortly thereafter, I got a job at LAZ-BOY-INTERNATIONAL in Welshpool were I sub assembled the backs for several different models of JASON Reclina Rocker. About 18 mths in to that job I got itchy feet, wanted to travel and get paid for it so I signed on again and here I am (on another deployment). By the way, the job has taken me all around OZ (except TASSIE)to Malaysia, Singapore, Timor, Bougainville (twice)and also partially paid for a family holiday to the USA when we were stationed at Tindal in the N.T.

Regards,
Vic
