Midge with any information you can remember on any of the above missing troops I am going to go all out to find them for the REUNION

email me
The above link is to a discussion paper I just received on the use of dangerous chemicals during our time in Pussers.  It is a must read...I have also posted the pdf file listing the chemicals we used. 
Toxic Chemical Info for everyone to read.... Most important..... 
A big welcome to our most recent find Rod Mitchell living in Brisbane he found us by googling Marks and Morrow he is still in the Army.  I will be adding his story to the My Story page when I receive the photos.
On a sadder note we were recently advised that Henry Knight from Marks 2 passed away in the mid 80s of a heart attack he was only 32.  I have made an entry on the VALE page.
Another 34ther has found us a big welcome to Terry Jefferson who was in Lees donga he went on to Topman and lives in Melbourne.  We hope to see him at next years reunion.
I received an email from someone claiming to be one of Owen Murrells school mates.  He said Owen is still alive and living in Cowra.  We cant confirm this so far and have not had a reply to emails to him.  We will keep you informed and would appreciate any help from anyone in the Cowra area who may know of somewhere disabled people might live under care.
If you were a member of the 34th intake for any length of time whatsoever and are on the missing list below and you stumble on this site please contact Midge Mancini at with your email and phone number

 The 46 year reunion is to be held in Adelaide South Australia on the weekend of 24th 25th and 26th of March 2017 it is being organized by Peter Willson click the link in the navigation panel  above  for details
