    Bugger. Met him first in at Ruahine corner in the mid 1970's when he and Will Partridge were possom trapping in there. Some big thick coon skins came out of there.
    Also authored some good books.

    RIP Scribe

    RIP Graeme. True battler and stubborn as all get-out. Another of the "Old School" gone sadly.

    What a bugger. I was just thinking about him this morning in relation to the Ukraine as he once said to me while we were having a yarn around a camp fire about seven years back that he felt he still had one good war left in him. My condolences to his wife Julie and his family. Graeme was a principled man and larger than life and his books were all a good read. I think that much of what was to be read in “Dust off for Willie Peters” was actually a reflection of Graeme’s own life experiences and I particularly enjoyed “Beneath the Southern Cross”. Rest In Peace. Another (now fallen) old veteran to be honoured every ANZAC Day.

    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Just reading up again about his court case (dismissed by the judge) where he was amazingly charged with assaulting a DOC security (unlicensed) guard.

    Im sure he used to post on the other (green) forum but I cannot find anything there now.
