I remember when I was about 5 we went out cutting wood for Big. I said to uncle Jim I reckon we are going to get bogged. He said โ€œdonโ€™t worry we wonโ€™t get bogged.โ€ Sure enough we had to do it his way. And we got bogged. So he he had to get all this bark and put it under the tyres.

I hope Jack saved you a spot in recruiting as thatโ€™s where l first met you Jim a few to many years back, then l joined the inspirational team of Jim & Jack to become young Jack, many hours of interviews of young wood be sappers & some who should never have been allowed out without hand cuffs RIP Jim
