60th Wedding Anniversary
« on: May 14, 2020, 01:09:53 AM »

On 14th May 1960 my wife and I were married in Newcastle, NSW, and 60 years later we're still going strong. It's a bit disappointing that, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we can't have a celebratory get together with family and friends, bur we've had lots of phone calls, plus cards from HM the Queen, our Governor General, the Australian Prime Minister, and our local Federal Member of Parliament. Once this virus is under control, and it's safe to do so, we'll have a party, but we may have to wait a while.

Heartiest congratulations to you and your wife Peter. We are 13yrs behind you but still going strong.
We hope you have a fantastic time when you are able to celebrate in the time honoured fashion, when things settle down,  in the meantime, stay safe and strong.


Best Regards,
Ray.

Congratulations  :-)) 


On my 25th anniversary (23 years ago) a female colleague said I deserved a medal. So you and your wife probably deserve a chest full.  :-)

Hi Dougal if we were in Dortmund this year as always in the past,  our 49th  this year my wife said I would probably get a medal as well
posthumously,closely followed by a Viking funeral ?
 If I was good she would wait until I was dead before the match went in ?

Congratulations and best wishes to you and Bev Peter, that's some milestone. Like Ron we are still lagging on 49!

No doubt you are having a virtual party and hopefully you will be able to enjoy a real one soon.

That's amazing, compared to you we are only beginners.


Thank you to everyone for your kind wishes. We had a fairly quiet day which, under the circumstances, is not surprising, but we did have numerous phone calls from friends and family, plus lots of comments on Facebook.


Time is relative, looking forward 60 years seems almost unimaginable, but when I look back the same length of time to our wedding day, it hardly seems any time at all. Hopefully we'll have a few more anniversaries yet, we may even catch up to Regiment :-)
