    Thanks to all

    Thanks to all, Lee, you must have gone to the 'Hookers Ball'. I went to one some years ago whilst working. My partner and I were wearing bike cop rig and fitted in with the crowd, most of the visitors thought we were in costum!!.

    East Timor has changed a lot in recent times. Ive been back for a look around and revisted my old posting up in the hills. Some good people there.

    It was the five best test matches I think I have ever seen ! Brett Lee, what a superb bowler. Shame Harmison didn't really get firing.

    To all those who don't know, there is a strong sporting rivalry between Australia and Great Britain.


    Never the less, it was a great game of Cricket.

    Well done.

    Cheers.

    The British have Marmite but it's rather like their Cricket and Rugby teams, in that it is not as strong as the Oz version.

    Ah, Vegemite, aka Axle Grease or Horn Paste.

    Do you have an equivalent to it in the US?

    Hi to all!

    My name is Dave, been a member of N.T. Police Force for 28 years. If any forum members served with me with UNPOL in East Timor in 2002 a special Hi!.

    Hey Dave, howdy to you too. I was in the Darwin RAAF base during the INTERFET Operation in East Timor. I'm with the USINTERFET, as the Chief of the U.S. Marine Security Guard Force and Special Response Team for the UNINTERFET alongside with the British Ghurka Unit in 1999. So, we're pretty much the first guys there during the hussle and bussle and the cleaning of the city with the Australian Forces. Probably you've heard the famous well over there in Dili.

    So, how's the good 'ol Darwin and East Timor? I miss Darwin to tell you the truth and Australia overall. Made a lot of good friends over there with the Australian and New Zealand Forces. I always remember one thing though, "VEGEMITE"! Crown Lager, VB, Four X, and that club in Darwin full of beautiful women - I remember the "Hooker's Night" very well!

    A'right mate!

    Lee
