Hi BOb,
Can't recall a 'Doohan'. Will ask at the next get together at the end of the month and see what we come up with. Cheers for now, Steve

Hi Bob, Sorry for the delay in responding to your message. great to hear from you and would definitely love to keep in contact. Have been catching up with a few of the boys of late and the memories keep flooding in. Don't know if you remember Phil Gray, sadly he passed away in the not too distant past. Body rust got him. Anyhow, look forward to hearing from you and finding out what you are up to these days. Blue.

Hi Bob, very nice to hear from you. Yes, Richmond, never my favourite base but the town etc was beautiful. I hope you and your wife are well. I remember you getting out and going to work for the Salvos was it when you were living next door at Richmond. Didn't you move to QLD? I got out and got back in (Sharon's choice) and we are living in Katherine at the moment. We do a lot of travelling in Asia and have been through HCM a number of times. Did you eventually retire there or are you doing some kind of work? Great to hear from you Bob. Just had my first Bali experience last week, Asia's Mt Druitt.

Hi Bob Yes I do remember you from Richmond. When the MTD mustering got disbanded I re-mustered to a CLKSPLY and in 1995 I got posted to Tindal. Discharged from there in 2001 after marriage break up and moved to Brisbane. Started working for Defence contractor TTDL at the old army barracks in Brisbane. I was moved out to Enogerra Barracks working for SASR looking after their vehicles and stores. Left there in 2009 and moved back to NSW on the south coast. Living in Ulladulla half way between Batemans bay and Nowra. Hope things are going good for you as well.
