Current Occupation: Retired
1966 today

My story is much the same as the others. The last stint in the Navy was 42 days at the Military Corrective Establishment. I was offered a numbers of sweeteners to stay in but enough was enough. My first job was with the Dept. of Aviation as a Fireman, Sydney Airport [Jan. 72 July 84]. My next job was a shift Fire and Safety Officer, Sydney Opera House [July ,84 Feb. 00], that was a good job but all good things come to an end. I was previouslyy employed as the Building Services Supervisor for the Councils Library sites. This is by far the hardest job I have ever had but a lot of job satisfaction goes with it.

I  recently retired and my new address will be 2/68 Corrimal St. Wollongong.

A lot of you have done an amazing amount of work in getting us this far, well done.

Regards Bernie.
