Dallas Andrews, Col Lacey, Phil Palmer


We heard from Kim Andrews, he writes:  “I am trying to make contact with Dallas Andrews, who is my father’s cousin. He appeared in your Association magazine (Vol 19, p 12) some years ago now, so I hope he is still around.


I understand if you are unable to give me a forwarding address, but would be grateful if you did know him and were able to pass on my details.


I have a number of old family photos and papers left after the recent death of my aunt, Dallas ’ cousin, which he or his siblings might like to have.”

Alan O'Connor nd John Mathwin





We’re trying to find Alan O’Connor who was on 41RTC.


Alan, shown on the left in the pic at right which was taken at Brighton Beach back in 1967, was, at the time, being severely led astray by John Mathwin.

Yvonne Brungs got in touch, she said, “Not sure if you are able to help us, we are doing a family search and are looking for a Geoffrey Bell from Ipswich in Queensland who was in the RAAF about 1965 (we believe in Radio school area then going to Melbourne). I know that being a common name it may be more difficult to trace this person. He had a brother named Barry. We think he only stayed in the RAAF for six years. Not a lot to go on. Please if you are able to help we would appreciate that.


If you’ve got any info, please email Yvonne HERE

A lady goes to the bar on a cruise ship and orders a Scotch with two drops of water. As the bartender gives her the drink she says, 'I'm on this cruise to celebrate my 80th birthday and it's today...The bartender says, 'Well, since it's your birthday, I'll buy you a drink. In fact, this one is on me.' As the woman finishes her drink, the woman to her right says, 'I would like to buy you a drink, too. 'The old woman says, 'Thank you. Bartender, I want a Scotch with two drops of water please. 'Coming up,' says the bartender.


As she finishes that drink, the man to her left says, 'I would like to buy you one, too. 'The old woman says, 'Thank you. Bartender, I want another Scotch with two drops of water please.  Coming right up,' the bartender says. As he gives her the drink, he says, 'Ma'am, I'm dying of curiosity. Why the Scotch with only two drops of water?' The old woman replies, 'Sonny, when you're my age, you've learned how to hold your liquor. Holding your water, however, is a another thing completely.'
