Lisburn Exiles Forum

(Site is no longer operational pending a major long overdue overhaul of the entire website. Thank you for your patience. Site should still be visible and searchable for old posts.)

The Lisburn Exiles Forum is dedicated to the memory of James Goddard Collins (The Boss) who single-handedly built LISBURN.COM (with a lot of help from many contributors) from 1996 to 29th November 2012. This website was his passion and helping people with a common interest in the City of Lisburn around the world is his lasting legacy.

Re: Wakey, Wakey

Hi Tom. "Boy", you sure get around between Victoria and Queensland, don't you ever go into Sydney?? When I was in Australia from 1950-56 being in the Navy I spent most of my time in Sydney though when I left the aircraft carrier HMAS Sydney I was drafted to a small shore base in Port Adelaide which was the worse draft I ever had in both the Royal and Royal Austrailan navies, it was run by reserve officers who thought they were Admirals I was only there ten months then back to the torpedo school in Sydney {Thank God}

My stepson and his wife were in Aussie for two weeks back in Febuary and really enjoyed themselves in both Melbourne and Sydney.

Weather here starting to warm up beautifull day yesterday even though we had some snow now into spring so things can only get better. Anyway Tom enjoy yourselves and All the Best for now. Best Wishes. Mauri
