1966 today-another hard day at golf

My apologies for the “long time- no hear”.  We do not have the internet therefore have been very slack in getting some info to you.  So here it is now.

Left RAN 1976-back to Tassie with wife and two kids.

Moved to Qld 1980 - divorced.

New wife and life mid 80’s!!....going well.

My wife Shari and I lived and worked for many years on the Sunshine Coast.  Worked at all sorts, e.g. real estate (owned our own office), Telecom for years, also owned and operated a restaurant at Caloundra and later a gift shop at Redcliffe.

Best and last job working for someone else was 3 years in the pro shop at Twin Waters Golf course on the Sunshine Coast…. I am a mad golfer, 6 handicap.

Now retired on a few acres at Woodford.  Between Shari’s two kids and my two kids we have ten grandchildren.

Hope to start 'grey nomading' from next year in caravan, hope to catch up with a few of you blokes then.

Great job Ray and Sandy and congratulations on your effort to keep track of us all.  Also to Steve for all the work he did in the past.

Cheers...........Bernie Young
