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 17-18 - September 25th

Wednesday 25th Sept dawned cold & clear which made it very hard to turn out of bed, be (sic) eventually we managed it. After breakfast we expected a parade but fortunately none came along - so we spent the morning in a lazy sort of way. After dinner we we (sic) all called on parade to move off to our different Battallions, but when the boys were ordered to march off not a man would budge, so the Col dismissed the parade.

So there's the start of the mini-mutiny. Told on Saturday, and left to stew until Wednesday is not conducive to good behaviour in the ranks.

Monday 25th Sept awoken by birds, mostly galahs and other parrots in the neighbours' trees. A few things to do this morning, then back to Brisbane later.
