LOOKING FOR WOWTR PAT SCULLY

Post by Sugarman49 »

Pat was one of the early WOs and I think he paid off from the Carrier MELBOURNE. We use to chat on line as he moved to "Outback" QLD as he wife was a school teacher. Then all of a sudden he stopped. He could not afford a phone or mobile and I educated him about the Service Pension which he did get it approved. His deceased brother Mick lived in VIC.

Great info Sugarman49.
Pat and Mick were both in the same Recruit Writers class as myself. Knew both of them fairly well at the time.
They were cookie cutter look alikes. Every now and then they would change places and take the piss out of our instructors.
That was all back in the 1960's (1963/64?).
Did not catch up with either of them much after that.
Sorry to hear that Mick carked it. Like you I wonder where Pat is now.

Interesting :
Basic search shows :
Patrick Garth Scully R62221 dob 13/08/1945 Perth WA NOK Hazel (Mother) Place of enlistment Adelaide date of enlistment 03/06/1963.
AND
Edward Terence Scully R62312 dob13/08/1945 Place of birth Subiaco Perth WA NOK HAZEL (Mother) place of enlistment Adelaide date of enlistment 03/06/1963.
So it appears Mick was actually Edward Terence. Certainly seems the right time as I enlisted in April, 1963 and my o/n was R62081.
The above is from Navy records. Don't know if it will help or not - hope so.

Blue - are you a member of the RAN Writers organisation. They have just updated their membership list so may be able to assist. I served with Pat (I was also a writer) but can't remember whether it was at Cerberus or Albatross.
