Hi to the group.
14 of intrepid Poms embarked on the TV Fairstar departing Southampton in May (June ?) 1965 via the Suez Canal to Freemantle, thence Melbourne and finally Sydney. Our chaperone was from Melbourne – Ron ??
Like so many, most of us ended up in the Burwood hostel with the infamous Gerald Hickey. I wasn’t there long before moving to Bondi Junction with a few other motley Little Brothers who had come out a few years earlier.
There’s a few of us who still keep in touch (Derek, Dennis & Rick) and a few who have unfortunately died earlier than they should have.
Please touch base any of you recalcitrants before it’s too late !!
