1966 today
When I left pussers I worked as an orderly at the Adelaide hospital for a couple of years where I met Teresa, my wife who was a nurse there.  I left there and became a bus driver with the State Transport Authority in 1977. 

After going to night courses at TAFE for 5 years, I got my Transport Administration Certificate in 1986 I was promoted to an Operations Supervisor a position I held until 1993.  Everything was then privatised but I was lucky enough to carry on as a transit co-ordinator with the private company who took over. 

In 2000 I was diagnosed with PTSD and other problems health wise and was classified TPI by  Veteran Affairs.   We have 4 children, 3 who are married and have careers of their own.  Believe it or not, one 14 year old at high school.  Just shows that I never know when to stop.
