14/02/2015          Email received from Des DeSmid:-      G’day Max,

Des Desmid here, 10th Intake 6th Jan. 1965.  I suspect you thought I’m Marien, my younger brother who joined in Jan. ’66 AND used my name as his nickname. Which is a pisspoor act but shit happens. Don’t know where he is or anything about him as he disassociated himself from us.  I done 20 yrs. service and know quite a few lads from your intake. We had a great 50th reunion last month in Sydney, can’t wait till our 100th comes around …..    Check out our website.  jr10thers.org   Bit of trivia for you mate ~ we were the last of the 4 divisions old names and first of 2 divisions 2 names. First of 4 intakes a year and first to go to new 2 storey brick dongas with showers & toilets + laundry in the same building! from the old wooden huts, outside toilets/showers/laundry. First to use new scran hall, etc, etc …. Bloody marvelous, a lot of fond memories and good mates till this day. Brenda & I have caravan round good old Oz and called into see mates in our travels, for a cuppa and a yarn, and sometimes stayed for a week or so. Some I hadn’t seen since leaving Leeuwin and the friendships still remains. Another highlight was the Leeuwin Reunion in Perth 2010. Now, was that well organised and a blast. Catching up with old shipmates and rugby mates and the ‘remember when’ moments                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Well cobber, I wish you well trust you’ll have a top 50th reunion in the not to distant future. Doesn’t time fly when your having fun. 

Seeya,        Des
