Are there any Kiwi Tiffs out there who were in HMS Collingwood at Fareham between 1962-1964.
I was in Middleton Division,where most Kiwis were. I remember playing Rugby with Apps Bilton,Kahaki and Sam Popata. I left the RN (FAA) IN 1983 and now live in Exmouth England.Would love to hear from anyone who remembers me.

Ashers calling!
I'm arranging a mini reunion of Adelaide based Tiffs at the Holdfast Hotel in Glenelg, SA, on Friday evening 19th September 2014. Lots of Tiffs from Linkedin have replied, but wanted to extend the invite to all via this guestbook too.
See you there!

I was in Series 6, Froby at Fisgard and Drake at Caley, I have recently moved into a retirement flat in Edinburgh but before that I was in a new build overlooking Caledonia (now MOD Caledonia) I am in the Rosyth RNA and we hold functions in the Wardroom which hasn't changed since I left in 1953!! I was amazed how many ex-Tiffs live in Oz and I do recognize some of the names. Best wishes to you all,
"Ally" Allerston.

Series 25 - ended up as REA(AIR) 1 - now semi-retired in Canberra. Busy enough as a consultant to the Aust Government even though work has eased off with the current Liberal's recruitment freeze. I provide services supporting recruitment activity!
I left UK in 1969 - 2 yrs at a tracking station here in Canberra, then 10 yrs odd at the Fleet air Arm base at Nowra as a civilian Senior Technical officer. After transferring back to Canberra I changed careers, got some qualifications - Masters level and became a senior officer finance adviser in Defence Dept.
Now married second time and very happy. Had a falling out with Bob W but all past business now!
Pleased to hear from anyone.

A member of Series 'The Magnificent' 7. Froby at Fisgard and remember Ally, below.
I see that Rob Thomas (S6) is still on your list but do not recognise him in any of the phots.
Vic Balhattchet was at our 50th reunion and we met up in Brisbane in the early 2000s. Have tried to make contact but have failed. Any help would be much appreciated.
Great to see the spirit of ex apps is alive and kicking 'Downunder'

Patrick Allerston ( Ally) Series 6. Froby and Drake Division. My first visit to this site and I have enjoyed it. Have made several visits to Oz two waterbourne on Hampshire and Duchess when we transferred it to the Australian Navy and several other times since I retired. During one of these visits I managed to meet up with Roy Barwick and his wife.
Best wishes to all the Ex Tiffs who live in OZ and NZ.

Series 39, Brickwoods Field Gun Winners 1963 ,HMS Belfast to Gibraltar 1963. HMS Caesar & Caprice then Submarines Valiant & Revenge. Seeing Gavin Dyer in print was a blast as we both attended TS Mercury from 1956 -1960 and both joined Fisgard 1960 and again both being REA's,
remember your Mercury # Gav? 4385...Benbow Division, I am cheating as I have the Mercury Magazines from 1956 -1960 with the lapse of time they make for "can't putdown reading".
Life has been good and it seems to get better married to a Scot in1967...living in New Zealand and still taking orders!
I must join up again....and meet up?

I was delighted to note Gavin Dyer S39 (Grenvile Divisions and later HMS COLLINGWOOD) is now living in Sydney. If anyone reads this please relay my email to him as it would be great to catch up for a beer and remember 1960 - 64!

Bill Allingham. S34,
Hi all "Tiffs Downunder." and all readers on this site.
Very sorry to report that the sites founder, mentor and my dear friend Bob Watson had a fall off a patio roof a couple of days ago when doing some DIY. He's in the Princess Royal Hospital, Brisbane where they have given him an immediate hip replacement and are treating his damaged ribs. He'll recover, but seems likely that he'll be in hospital until some time in January. I'll keep up to date and post any news on this site. Wishing you all a Very Happy Xmas. Bill Allingham

This is my first visit to site and it was surprising just how many old class mates I recognised from those old photos, including myself.
I am still in contact with Rueb Stapley and we meet up every so often.I have also just recently found out that Jock Dickson , the list of class members only list 1 Dickson, we had 2 in our entry if my old mind serves me correct. 1 Ian Dickson Blake Division, the other was Dixon Duncan Division but I cant remember his first name.
Ian is now living in Aberdeen but seems to have shut himself off a bit as I never hear from him except a Xmas card.
Rueb recently informed me that Pete Wren has sadly Crossed the Bar earlier this year. This came from Petes Daughter.
If anyone out there would like to contact me I will be only too pleased to hear from them

Hi Paul
Thanks for the update re your Dad, sorry to hear of the loss of another of our ilk, sounds like he will be sadly missed.
I was unaware that he was a Tiff Down Under but have emailed those out here that I am aware of from his series plus Ted Sanderson in the UK who is in contact with most from that class.
regards Bob Watson
