    Sydney faces circa 1975

    Have to use your imagination here. This was one of the photos used in a blurb for the org about 1975, I think. This was taken at Lee street on the second floor when the HGC and Qual were still there. (later moved to Fourth floor). The door at the back next to the 100% standard tech sign is to the CS office and the door at the back on the right is to one of the auditing rooms.


    Left to right: Gwen Matthews (back to camera), Kevin McPherrin, (unknown), Edith Nietsche, Julie Cramey, Vivienne Deyes (later Lowe), Martin Bentley

    Free to shine Shiny & Free

    Yes, after my Sydney time.

    Wow ... Elaine, Martin ... I only met Joe Cartwright once I think but was a good friend of his brother Alan, who has gone on to bigger and more destructive things. I think I met Julie ... I went out with her son Chris who died after I had left for Saint Hill. And Martin Bentley played a huge part in my story. Brings back a lot of memories.

    Just some shots of my sister, Joan, and me, and her husband, Mark Treasure.

    First one is at an event where we were pushing XDN, I think. (I see a lot of cigarettes and tobacco on the desk but none was ours. We didn't smoke.)

    The second was earlier at a different event. Third and fourth are her in the CS office. Third taken on a trip up the coast.
    The last two are of Mark. They got married after I left Australia and I met him only once, in Canada when they went on a visit to "salvage" me. Ahem.

    Australians at CCHR Conference in LA in 1976(?)

    I recognize some faces but not the names (except for Elaine Allen).
    Some were from Perth (friends of Hawkins/Maces).
    Some of you will recognize them, I'm sure.
    (I didn't go to the conference. My sister did and she took the photos)
