Sport on CANTERBURY

Okay.  Pick the Communicators and any others you can name in this image which was taken in 1979.  The HMNZS CANTERBURY team was picked to play the Battalion in Singapore.  Not sure who won the game but I am sure someone will advise us.

    Don’t recognise any “Communicators” in the team. However, there are a couple of Seaman EWs, a Jossman and an officer…

    I played in the curtain raiser v’s Sembawang Tigers (all the other NZFORSEA units) and was a reserve in the Tyrell Cup match (Canterbury v’s 1RNZIR) i think the match was drawn.
    Regards Jacko.
