John Bowden,
Hi to all Oz Tiffs,

Just a quick hello to you all from the Bodger here in dear old Devon. We had a great time in Dawlish Warren last weekend at the multi class reunion S34-S40. It was great to see Bill and Margaret Allingham from down under. Enjoyed a quick look at your site, and will be back.

It is my intention to hold a joint reunion for both S34 and S35 in October, 2018 to celebrate 60 years since joining "Fisgard" in late '58, early '59.

Hope to see all you 34s and 35s there.

John "Bodger" Bowden.

Anyone out there from series 33 Anson Division?
I came in from HMS Ganges and yes it was quite a culture shock.
Now living in Willowbank Qld 4306 and loving it, especially the part of playing at being a Grey Nomad. Or as "Her Indoors" calls it being a Geriatric Hippie.

801 Spike Div, transferred to RNZN in Jan 1990 left in 2001. Now living in (Shakey) Christchurch teaching electronics. Never thought after I'd left the Andrew that I would have to secure things for sea again - but post earthquakes here in Christchurch I find myself once again lashing test equipment down & securing books in bookcases with gunline!

I note that you list Chris Miller (33 series) as post code 3888, in fact it is currently 2316

I am also ex 33 series and live in England and would love some of that sunshine you antipodeans enjoy!!

Thanks Muddy. It is the people like yourself, being staunch supporters that make the effort worthwhile. Long may it continue.
I would like to see others that are a bit reticent to join in and get to know us. We are there for the social side of things and remembering our backgrounds.

No matter what ,I will always turn up at reunions and get togethers as long as I'm able. Please encourage all known Tiffs to do likewise. Thanks Bob for a great site and for uniting us as a band of Tiffs down under.

I joined S5 Class on January 10th 1949. Served in the RN till June 1973 then joined the RNZN June 16th in Auckland NZ. Retired 18th December 1978 from the sea. Would love to hear from any Tiffs visiting NZ from anywhere.
Thanks Bob for such a wonderful 'Tiffs Down Under Club.'

I joined Fisgard in 1955, went to Abroath Condor transferred to The Australian Tiffs at HMAS Nirimba in 1959, the Aussie Fleet Air Arm disbanded at the end of 1959 so I was not long in the Navy ! I now live in Adelaide and am semi-retired after a career in Civil Aviation. Currently an Aviation Consultant.

I was S34 (1958) Fisgard entry and then Collingwood for Part II. As I am fulfilling a lifelong ambition (since watching emigration presentation in Plymouth circa 1968) and travelling to New Zealand (stop overs Sydney inbound, Melbourne return) with my partner to stay with her son and Kiwi wife in Tauranga, I would like to contact ex NZ Tiffs Charlie Stewart and Pete Muir.

I will be joining the "Tiffs Down Under" reunion in Melbourne for their dinner on 2 March and river trip 3 March.

Many thanks in anticipation, Richard (aka Dick) Glenister, Lake District, UK
