2016 Sydney Reunion - 31st Dutch Shipping in Australia Reunion

The 31st “DUTCH SHIPPING IN AUSTRALIA” reunion, was this year again held in the “DELIMA” Indonesian restaurant China town, and what a day it was!

There were a reduced number of persons present compared to last year but the atmosphere was great. And the choice of dishes we had was superb, which I am sure would have brought back fond memories of many seagoing personnel.   

Sadly since the last reunion we had notice of the passing of Kees de Jong, Sonia Schröder, Frans Beckers and Warwick Abadee. Warwick had been for a long time involved with the Maritime Museum in Sydney and Co-Organiser of our Sydney reunion.

It was again great to see that quite a few still make the effort to come to reunion from interstate.

Fred again held his annual raffle of wine. Congratulations to the winners 

As always there were quite a few apologies from persons that could not make it this year, as per list included. Even though we are an aging group, so many still find a way to travel around the world.

To make future planning easier please note that all future reunions, as long as they last, will be held on the last Saturday in May
