Over 35 years ago I served with a mate in South Vietnam by the name of Mick, we were both Medical Advisors serving with the Australian Army Training Team, the most highest decorated unit to have served from the Australian army, we served together in the years 1970 to 1971 and returned to Australia and became Medical Instructors at the School of Army Health here.
For 6 years we worked together in this field until we finally left and pursued our own different paths in the army.Mick went onto being an instructor in demolitions and associated activities and I went on into the Health field as a Health inspector and Occupational Health and Safety officer.
We finally met up a while back and our mateship rekindled old memories as we discussed the various paths our lifes led us to. Two vastly different paths but the mateship is still as strong, Mick and his lovely wife Marg have a homebase here in Adelaide but they spend most of their time riding a great motorcycle with everything but the kitchen sink, I stick to my Subaru Outback for offroad travel and Mick and Marg hit the highways and byways on this great Bike.
Just a bit of nostalgia to share with you, Micks bike has the logo on it of our old army unit and he is also a member of the Ulysses club , a club for those over 50 who enjoy the open roads.
These are a couple of pics of his bike, am I jealous ? , bloody hell I am but such is life , we have travelled far over three decades and travelled different roads but as Sue Dreamwalker says , we still belong to the same tribe.
Cheers guys and wishing you all a great weekend
