Vale John

John was on my course of March 1965, but after a short orientation course in Moresby our paths in TPNG never crossed again (although I found I have a foto of John shaving in the donga we stayed at in Moresby - don't ask me why a) I took the picture, b) why I still have it - I don't know.)
R.I.P. John

Also on recruit course with John but not posted to same District(Central) until after John had gone South. After his first Contract, John ended up at Macquarie Uni in NSW with a Bachelor of Education Degree and became a School Teacher until his retirement. After his wife passed away moved to Cleveland Qld a few years ago to be near his daughter Rachel. Had the pleasure of catching up with John a few times a year for lunch and chewed over old times of course. Regret I did not contact him more recently. RIP John.
