And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myslef, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going."

No one comes to the Father except through me". Address. Reverend Graeme Marks. Prayers. Reverend Luke Thomson.

    I remember Ron King well, he was our drill instructor at the Redfern police training centre…class 119, 1969. We had a 50th reunion 2019 sadly two of us have passed away since then. Ron will be sadlymissed by his brothers, former colleagues from the nsw police.

    Not mentioned in the above resume is that Ron King was awarded the Borneo bar to the General Service Medal, for serving in Borneo as a commando during our little known dispute Confrontation/Confrontasi when Australian troops were on a war footing against Indonesia. Shots were fired and lives were lost.

    • Hi Roy,
      Can you tell me the actual date that you all walked into Redfern Academy to start Class 119 please. I know you were Sworn In on Monday 23 June 1969. Just need the Walk In date.
