WINDY GALE
Another sailor’s ship has set sail.
His friends all knew him as Windy Gale.
A family man who cared for his mates.
As a seaman, he had all that it takes.
Alan served his country but never stood down.
A more compassionate man could not be found.
He was always willing and loyal to a tee,
And he never forgot his love for the sea.
He was a tireless worker who gave his all,
To any ex-service folk within his beck and call.
His tribute to the fallen is quite legendary.
Posting their details so they’re here for posterity.
Alan will be missed by all those who knew him.
But we know to which port, he will be sailing.
All we can do now is pray for fair weather.
Till the time comes when we can all be together.
Bill Charlton.
A mate.

This morning I had a visit from Ray James and Alan Gale who are members of the Vietnam Veterans Association of Australia – Macarthur Sub Branch.
Like myself, both Ray an Alan are also ex NSW Police Officers.
They presented Bujustu with a certificate of appreciation for sponsoring the Vietnam Veterans Macarthur Branch.
I try to do around 7K a year in sponsorships, mainly to Macarthur community groups, schools and sports teams. This is one cause I did not hesitate for a second to sponsor.
If you are a business owner looking for a worthy cause to support, get in contact with these guys.
