Run 2413 Joint ANZAC DAY run, 26Th April @ Britannia Reserve Mt Hawthorn.
A reasonable over all turn out, except Perth boys did not front in suffient numbers, pity. We had about 35 guys form Hamersly H4 , 12 odd from West Coast H3 , about 20 from Perth H3. A cool nite but no rain.
Prior to run start Assasain HH4 GM lead us into RESPECT ONE minute silence, A very proffesional “Buggaler” did LAST POST and revalie. The ODE of Anzac’s was read out , all done very well.
It was ON ON with the usual loop and around to the walk over bridge to lae Monger. Around the lake on pathways towards Leederville, where the Walkers split two ways, to the foorpath close to the freeway. Or Oxford St. Back to the bucket. Scumbag rocks in quite late, but he’s running well for an old piss pot. Noteable for there absense was an underground hashers with his French cohort ( maybe hes building the new Subs), must say we did not miss them.
A good circle. Not too long, had many buggers put on the ice, and down down’s to out Outstanding GM Skid, and out excellent ON SEC Action,, all class these boys.but there again thats what you expect in PERTHH3.
Our most Noteable Vietnam Vet the one and only XMAS , given task of arranging the food, went to alot of reserch, providing us with Anzac biscuits ( hard tack) small tubs of fruit, with a tin of Bully Beef. I could not eat it all, very filling. The diggers of 1917 the BRITISH TOMMYS were given Bully beef with front line troops getting only 6 ounces each. Parcels of food was sent by the families to their men in the front.
The Anzac Bicuits were hard and nutrious as they had to last long travel distances.
Anyway big hand to Xmas who puts in lots of zeal to any job given to him. Thanks mate.
Just hope its fine next Monday nite or I will be in the shit!!
See ya at the Lunch in Fro! Go the dockers!!
