Location: Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Over 60, with a son 32 and a daughter 22. Retired on 26 October, 2007, after 37 years with the company. No matter, I've led an interesting life with much travel in Southeast Asia, the Pacific Region, and a little bit of Africa.

Page 14-15 - September 14th

Saturday Sept 14th found us up bright & early playing revellie as usual. After breakfast we started practice, but we (were) called away for pay - after which, we resumed practice until dinner hour. Dinner over, we marched the Battn up to the sports & played (combined with the 9th Battn Band) all afternoon. We returned at 4:15 pm & had tea & played for the concert party (Blue Gums). Rained a little during the evening.

Thursday Sept 14th coolish, with clouds coming and going.

Anniversary: Today is the 36th anniversary of my employment with the Coffey Group. To put that in perspective, the company has been in operation for just 47 years.
