After RAAF School Penang I joined the RAAF and spent 21 years as an Intelligence Officer. I served all around Australia and overseas, including peacekeeping in Egypt (but had no postings back to Butterworth). In 1982 I visited Butterworth on a Hercules and went out to see the old school.
In recent years I have lived in Canberra where I retired from the RAAF and stayed on as a civilian in Defence intelligence. My wife, Pam, and I moved to Melbourne in 2007.
Our years in Penang are fondly remembered. It was a great place to teach because the students, the teachers and the place were all fantastic.
