Hi All Classmates

Today I watched and listened, over Zoom, to a very moving funeral of Tim Britten who passed away a few days ago.Tim had had a long period of pain with various ailments but had remained just so positive throughout and all who had contact with him marvelled at his resolve.

Timmy was a very popular member of our class and reports on his life were given by Tim's son Will, Horrie Ongley and Dave Wilkins - Tim wanted no palaver and all expressed the massive positive effect on theirs and others lives. 

Tim is remembered as a great member of the Class of 64

Regards to all of you and I look forward to a time when we can reunite.

John Redward

Hi Davey Wilkens,  I remember those evenings I used to run into you and Timmy at the rugby some years ago...i ran into Tony Jensen in Bowral last year when he and Scrubba Ahearn (the Angry Ant() came up to do a presentation on Coral for one of the Rotary Clubs.You'd probably contact him through Scrubber. Hope that helps.   Best wishes.....John Griggs

Hi John

Yeah, I sent an email to Davey with Tony's email address.  You, and others in the Class, may or may not have heard that Tony received the Medal for Gallantry recently, for his service under fire at FSB Coral; 50 years too late!  Greatly deserved.

Hope you are faring okay John.  Regards Rod

Hi Davy,

Good to see you here as an honorary  (1964) 'class member'. Tony Jensen's number is (02) 6227 5458 and his email is ahjensen@bigpond.com

By the way, I attended the recent opening of the exhibition of the Battle of Ngok Tavak at the National Vietnam Veterans Museum at Phillip Island. As you would be aware John White who was with the AATTV figured very prominently in this action and was eventually (about 50 years later) awarded the Distinguished Service Cross.

John spoke exceedingly well at the exhibition opening and he was supported by quite a few members from your 1963 Class and his family. I was glad to hear a detailed account of what occurred and the exhibition has been very well put together by the Museum staff.

Best Wishes to you and your family.

Kind Regards

Brian
