218527 BIGWOOD, Richard Alan
Where are you “Barney” or "Rick"?   Is this truly all you wanted?
“All we were looking for is recognition we existed so those like Pt Mc Cauley who had pensions refused based on our non existence would be looked after”

None of the 4RAR transfer group to 1 ATF, who offered correct and proper info to DVA,  were denied pensions for having served HQ COY 1ATF. Some bullshit artists may have been.  If this particular Mc Cauley says he was at Thua Tich, he’s a much a liar as Bigwood.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
I was a regular infantry soldier with service in D coy 1RAR, Tracker platoon 4RAR/NZ yes the 2nd D&E platoon (as told to us by Major George Pratt and LtParkin) and finally D coy 9RAR. Bob I had quite a deal of operational experience before i went to 2nd D&E. I am not a "BUDGIE" or part of "TATEs FLOCK" you belittle yourself by these offensive remarks. I am an individual who was on the ground with Jim Riddle ( a professional soldier ex Royal Marine) My aab83 originally has me posted from 4RAR/NZ to 6 RAR, never been in 6 RAR .

All we were looking for is recognition we existed so those like Pt Mc Cauley who had pensions refused based on our non existence would be looked after. 
We did exist acknowledged by the support from many senior officers like Neil Weekes who flew from north Queensland at his own expense to assist .
