When I paid off, I owned Gyms in Perth for 10 years with ex bubbly Steve Smith.  Trained many high profile sports people.  The gym is still trading successfully.  Got divorced and sold my ˝ share of business because of the very long hours involved and went into finance Broking which I do enjoy and still work for myself
Current Occupation: Finance Broker for 4 years
1966 today
Wanted to be an EMP, as soon as I got to Cerberus for course I wanted to be a PTI after observing their training etc. They said you have to be a dibby so I said which branch doesn’t train at Cerberus.  So RP it was, did very well as RP, became ASAC and had to knock back my PO’s on Perth to do PTI course. 76 became PT and loved it.  Various postings after and finished off last two years in recruiting in Perth in 88 as CPOPT.

Have a son in RAN as EWS ( old ROS) and looks like going to ADFA and he is loving it and I am very happy for him.
