Thanks to the many lads and ladies who came to welcome Shirley and I for a SEQ Meet & Greet day at the South Tweed Bowls Club - a really great day. A special thanks to those who traveled some distance to attend.

Thanks also to Brian & Eileen Hunt who as hosts showed us much generosity in their time and entertainment.

Originally from Weston-Super-Mare, I attended Vindicatrix March-May 1957. Remained in the MN for just two exciting years, then emigrated to Australia. Vindi training proved invaluable when in 1959 I enlisted in the Australian regular army. After a couple of years with 3RAR in Brisbane, transferred to RAE Small Ships based on beautiful Sydney harbour, just in time to help crew a LSM up through the G/Barrier Reef to New Guinea, Singapore, and many islands around S.E. Asia. Best wishes to all.

Who can forget Robbie Lynde barking out orders in his top hat to willing workers at the Nambucca down under reunion in 2002. Rob a 1941 Vindi lad served his time at sea during the war years. An Olympic diver, migrating to Australia to take on the bush as a cattle drover and raising from a rigger to Director of International Cranes. A yachtsman and motorhome traveler, a gifted and award winning writer, a man of all seasons and a gentleman Rob you will be sadly missed. RIP.

Once again we hear of the sad loss of another Queensland "Vindi Boy", Rob Lynde. May I again, on behalf of all members of our Independent Vindicatrix of East Kent send our sincere condolences to his family and all who knew him on their very sad loss. Our thoughts are with you all. R.I.P. Rob.
