  1. Hank Lawrence 1 Troop 1962-65 From Bournemouth
    Yes i will be attending and very much look forward to seeing you all again plus a few new faces we have made contact with this year and those we hope to find in the future.

  2. Richard Clarke22/9/09 14:59

    2009 we had a total of 134 people attending and it looks like we will excede this in 2010 we are hoping to change some things a little, at the moment I am still talking with the hotel and will send out the full details later in the year. Heidi and myself are looking forward to meeting you all again and hopefully those missing faces. regards Richard(nobby)

  6. Anonymous27/9/09 19:35

    Hi Hank
    You can add myself and Lesley to the 2010 Covenary list please.

    Jackie Gavin.

  7. Hi Hank
    This is to confirm that Cheryl & I will be attending the Coventry reunion.
    Regards Peter Keddie

  8. Forgive my appalling memory for names(Terendak 1966-1968) Althseimers kicking in. lovely to see some of the names in Hanks list - Sid Hutchings,Jackie Book, Johny Olford, Maurice Day, Dennis Holroyd, Ken Houston-Robb, Fred Collings, Dave Purvis - the rest are a dim haze only due to my aging processes. Love to hear from Jock Day, Tom Smit,Les Thornton, Ginge Bottomley and others.
    Visited Terendak earlier this year and had a guided tour of the place by the Malay Paratroops.
    Very sad to see the place in dissaray - no longer the pristine golf course lawns. Lots of lean-toos next to dilapidated quarters. Hospital just the same - strip outside not changed much either. Couldnt find kohima lines.
    cemetary looking sad but ok.
    will post some pics if I ever learn how to do it
    Rod Horner - MFO guy in the QMs Compound - not guilty if any went missing.

    As we have a lot of names who have not booked yet who say that they intend to come.
    If you have any problem with this please let me know so I can help.

    As you can see we now have 52 rooms booked out of the 90 rooms I have block booked and on my list 42 more men who have said they want to come but have not booked yet so do not leave it to late! as the hotel will other guests that weekend.

  17. Dear all

    Just a note to say Shirley and I hope you have a great weekend at the reunion. We enjoyed meeting you all last year and have very fond memories. Sorry we can't make it but hope we can get to see you again another time.

    I received a surprise call from Ray Goymer in Sydney a couple of days ago. I remember him doing the pay for a time and he found Shirley and me our very first home - a hiring at 4979 Bukit Bahru, Malacca!

    I believe he was tracked down by Hank - well done! We had a good old chat and he hadn't heard of the PJM so I'm able to help him with that.

    Avagoodweekend and best wishes to you all.

    Adrian & Shirley Rogers
