Gunnies Book Nov 1999 to Dec 2000 (from Old Site)

This page lists messages posted to the old Gunnies website in a area known as "The Gunnies Book" between Nov 1999 and Dec 2000, some years later this area was decomissioned and the first generation forum for the Gunnies website called the "Grapevine" was put in place. The page links listed here may contain information such as email addresses and contact numbers that may be no longer valid, so all website users are encouraged to use the Database menu link that is maintained by Ron Brett for up to date contact details.

Good to see more gunnies standing up around the world. I left Saudi Arabia in Dec99 and started work as a bus driver with Stagecoach (United Kingdom) in Feb00. If you're in the UK and need a free bus ride come see me. I'm now on a junior management course. Come the revolution when I'm king of this company things will be different.

Anyway - Monday is St.Barbaras-Day and our historic gun-crew will honor her as every year with a traditional salute of 23 rou nds. We wish you as members of the woldwide brotherhood of St.Barbara all the best to the coming 4th of December.

Times have changed, and so has the gunnie culture from what I can see. When I was in, it was the three P's, (pros, prawns & censored). I hope that things have not changed too much. Remember me to cokejar!!! He may not remember me but I remember him. I am a W.A. Cop now(can you believe it!). Any favours, look me up!! Kindest regards Ashley Lowe

Great to see the Gunnie spirit living on. If I had my time over I would do exactly as I did last time, and become a Gunnie by choice. Living in Singapore so don't see many of the old crowd but appreciate hearing the odd bit o f news from the fraternity. Keep up the good work and best wishes to all.

Much to everyone's surprise, I'm still in the RAAF. And even more surprising I'm definitely the oldest Gunnie on Base, possibly the RAAF. We have a reunion every year in the Snake pit usually mid year, lot's of beer, curry and bullshit, give me a ring and I'll put you on the Data Base. All the best from Cookie.
