I did a couple missions to ANZO back in the 80s. I knew a couple people at the AO but was mainly in the FOLO/CLO. I do remember Maggie Pearce, she seemed pretty rigid and unfunny to me. I liked her husband, he was a bit less rigid and funny. A bit of an artist if I remember. I think they had a son that was a big deal because he was one of OT course room supervisors at a very early age. Think his name was Matt. Not to familiar with other people.
From the FOLO/CLO I remember Kerry Ellis, when she wasn't popping out kids, was a very mean person. THere were a couple kids often at the CLO and she seemed to enjoy yelling at them. I remember Pat Colosimo was the finance director at that time, which I found odd because he seemed more of a follower to me. There was a impromptu canteen in the D/COs office (Margy? Marcy? Rogers) which was just a bookshelf with candy bars and cigarettes that didn't last long because people would take stuff and leave IOUs that were never paid. I can't remember any other names, just faces. There was this irish guy, very funny, but very hard to understand, Jim I think. I'll come back if I remember more names.
Jim O'Sullivan - dark hair, glasses, thickest Oirish accent I've ever heard. IIRC he and his wife were shipped off to Adelaide after they had a child.
Marcy Rogers - sadly deceased I believe as is her hubby Graham. Good people.
Keri Ellis was the first person to reg me back in 1979 - got me onto the HAS Co-audit. Spent an awful lot of time on the RPF and IIRC routed herself back onto it a few years back. A decent person whose behaviour became thuggish over the years she was in CLO.
Pat Collossimo routed out IIRC - divorced his wife (one of the Denness girls) and I never saw him again. He'd had an affair with another CLO crew and she got Declared. I think he left her too.
