I hope you’re well and know how incredibly appreciative I am. Thank you so much.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for my lovely sea turtle laundry bag. No one in my family sews or is very crafty so for me this is really cool and I can appreciate all the time and work that has gone into it. The mess (ships living quarters) is pretty dull so having this hanging on my locker certainly brightens the place up a bit which is awesome.
I'm currently on HMAS Success as the ships tanky. Marine technician by trade I look after all the fuel transfers to other ships and the ships stability. Some interesting facts, we carry around 4.6 million litres of diesel and can pump at a rate of 680,000L/hr. That’s a fuel truck you see at a servo station unloading every 3 minutes.
The deployments have been really good. Recently got back from a 6 month trip to Philippians, Vietnam, Singapore, Samoa, Vanuatu, Hawaii and PNG. We are back again for Christmas then go away again late January I think.
Thanks again and please give my regards to the 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 chooks, 2 teenagers and the rest of the family. They're lucky to have such a talented, lovely mother such as yourself. :)
