Bruce Russell

to me
Hi John, Yes I was with the 410 Ind. Plant Troop RE as a fitter. I got to the troop in 1958 and was at the first camp, when we had a troop photo taken on the 16-07- 58 in the plant yard, then we moved camp further up the road nearer the River, it was rough going at first crossing the river without a bridge, then a bailey bridge was put up, then the Nami bridge.  I remember Ollie on the D8 Cat, Ken on the D7 Cat, Jock Mackensie, Jock Ward, We went to Penang  Christmas time for Admin 1958. I got my going home papers in July 1959.  Some of the guys may remember I was in the truck that rolled over down the side of the road and was taken by helicopter to hospital.  Yes that would be nice of you to publish it on your blog, to see how many of the guys get back to me.  Best regards Bruce Russell .

 Hi again Bruce ,
Thanks for your reply, I have published your email message on my 410 Blog I know some will remember you, I arrived in the troop the same month you left in 1960, we where then on the beach in Malacca building airstrip and roads for the new Terendack camp.
I take it you must have been national service as the normal tour at that time was three years for regulars.
We are having our Reunion on the 7th of April at the Holiday Inn Coventry, Ollie is booked in along with about three or four more who worked on the Kedha road project, if you would like to join us email me back on this address and I will forward details to you.

Hi John,  Yes I was in the national service,  It would be rather a long way to come to the reunion as I now live in Calgary Canada.  But I often get the old photos out and look through them and things on your blog.

Regards Bruce Russell.

PS Thanks for your quick reply.

The Last Post by Rachel Bostock

Having had our ANZAC Day commemorations and memorials this past Monday, I felt inspired to pay my own tribute to our brave ANZAC's, including both of my Great Grandfather's. Sadly, neither of them made it home. To those who served then and to those who serve now, I thank you. Here is my rendition of The Last Post.

Lest we forget...

Thank you!
