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

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 [email protected] with your email and phone number
The 2019 reunion page has been completed after much drama thanks to changes to the website editor not working very well.   A great event organised beautifully by Steve and Mariette Cottam view by clicking the link above
Got a message from Rob Nicholls who is Geoff Nicholls brother he is going to let him know about the website.  He lives in WA
Received an email from Stephen Green who stumbled on the website yesterday big welcome Greenbottle from Marks 2.   I have sent the database to Stephen.
I Have created the page for the 2020 50th Marks and Morrow reunion which will be held during the all JR 60th reunion commencing on Thursday 9th July and concluding with the all JR formal ball on Monday 13th July 2020.  It has been pointed out that our actual 50th is on the 6th Jan 2021 but as accommodation and expenses are affected by the Christmas period this was too good an opportunity to pass up.  The 50th all JR reunion held in 2010 was an amazing experience and one I am eternally grateful for attending.  Not only for the chance to meet up with our own intake but also the chance to meet up with sailors you served in the fleet with.  It was brilliantly organised and I have no doubt this one will also be something to remember.  As you all know by now HMAS Leeuwin is about to be demolished and turned into a housing estate we will be the last official tour of the old base before it becomes a memory another great reason to make all efforts to attend.  All the details you need are on the page accessed via the navigation panel above, see you there.........
