I am in the UK and searching for a Museum/Library with information on the NSW Permanent Artillery in the 1880/90s. I have references to documents held at RAAHC in Victoria (I think) but no way to see them. Can anyone help with questions about Quarter Master Sergeant Allan Warren Wells (absconder 1892) and his life in NSW Artillery.

Hi guys, Alec Mead, 38484, 17 Construction Squadron Workshops, May 67 - June 68. Don't know if you've heard yet, but Maldon Clive Sheather passed away in Corryong in October of this year. For some reason his name rings a bell with me, would you have a photograph of him on your site anywhere.

Congratulations on a beautiful obituary for Don Donkin.
As I attended his funeral, I heard first hand from the speakers at his service just how much he was admired and how grateful
they were for his dedication and display of professionalism.
He was, and always will be remembered, as an outstanding soldier and in particular, "Gunner" that we can all be proud of.
I am trying to locate photographs of my late brother 1205673, WO2 (I think) Russell John (Rusty) Carsburg who passed away on 7 May 2009. I have none of him in Service Dress or working dress. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
I have just been enjoying looking at the photos in the Australian Wide Gun Hunt section and have noticed a bad miss identification in the Queensland section (Page 2). The gun listed as a 77mm Japanese Mountain Gun from WWII is actually a WWI 7.5cm. MINENWERFER (German Mortar)It is the grey painted one with wooden wheels.
Hope you can amend this mistake. Thanks Rick.
I was in the Royal Signals in 6 ( LIGHT ) Regt
in HQ Battery. We had A Bty RAA with us and I got to
know a Bdr Jim Clements very well. We were at TERENDAK CAMP in Malacca Malaysia in 1966. It may be a bit vague but it would be nice to know how he is doing
