Pat Rooney left the Airforce with the rank of sergeant & he worked for many years with the corrective services in Brisbane--- Pat left this position with a payout for stress related illness and retired. He died in Ipswich QLD 1993/94 ?
I first met Pat in the early 70s and served with him in 75sqn at Butterworth in 1979.
Pat was a typical armourer---- worked hard, played hard & was a real gentleman.
I regarded him as a friend
