To all those Kiap brothers enjoy a happy Christmas and trouble free 2018. This 92 year old is still battling on; driving, cooking doing the laundry an acting as a volunteer JP one morning a week. The only thing going for me is that anywhere I go I am always the oldest. All my WW2 mates have passed away and I guess my Kiap brothers are catching up. Not ready yet for the last patrol and flying to Sydney on the 22nd for a family Christmas.

God Bless you all and stay well

Des Martin

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, Des. We've never met but your message suggests I've really missed out on that score. I was born about six weeks before your DOSS, and I obviously feel a lot more worn out than you do. Bloody hell... Keep at it.
