Barry O’BRIEN was a class mate back in 1955, My reg.No.8167 his 8192.
Barry had just came out of the RAN and back from Korea. I think he did his Radio Techs license in the Navy and served with my brother (also a Sparky) on the HMAS Sydney.
Barry never wore a uniform and went straight into the Communication section where he served his whole service.
I think you will find he and Bruce Waters kicked off the BAS Section in Redfern back in the 60s.
Has the same name as my old mate Barry John (Muktah) O’BRIEN from Fairy Meadow.
This is the only photo I have of him, taken out of our class photo.
