    Baldy was the captain of the Navy Rugby tem in the early 60’s. Never known to give the game up until the final whistle. One of my best run a shore mates. –

      Yeah, Baldy was a colourful bloke, always good for a laugh. Could’nt keep away from the old gym in Philly when he retired. Frequently in there pumping weights or whatever. Loved his “masonry work” ponsing around the Shore in his ” kipper cads”. Rest in peace Baldy.
      By the way…..GEORGE , do you know if ERIC BOISEN is still kicking. Last saw him on Rotoiti 1963-64 doing Wx Picket at 60 South.

        Hi Bill, Eric passed away a few years ago of heart attack, after he left the RNZN he joined the RNZNVR. His last employment was as manager of the ACPOST plant for Auckland Council

  4. Bill Bartlett says:

    Hiya Rex! Thanks for that matey.. I think Boisen was also on the Council’s traffic division.ponsing around on his motorbike. Dished out quite a few “tickets”.
    All the best to you and Shirley.
    Regards
    BB.
