Page 3 Girl.



Recently there was an impromptu meeting of readers of the RAM held at the Shamrock Hotel in Townsville and at that meeting of like minded peoples it was unanimously decided that the RAM was becoming a bit dull – a bit boring!!.


What everyone agreed was needed to brighten things up, was the inclusion of a pretty Page 3 Girl.


We agreed wholeheartedly and after a show of hands from all the red blooded male humanoids who were at that meeting, it was decided our first Page 3 Girl should be the delightful Carol Jewel.


Carol Jewell


For those that don’t know, Carol lives in Melbourne and is Laurie Lindsay’s CO. Carol was recently spotted in Townsville, at the farewell party for the old Caribou and was photographed by an astute happy snapper.


SO!!!  Now that  we've started with our Page 3 Girl - we need some photos. Girls, send them in ..........

Wayne Smith sent us the above photo, he says:  “I am pretty sure we were Frank Alley’s very first Radtech A course. I was always amazed at that time that the then Pilot Officer Alley was a qualified teacher (school type) but was leaning the electronic theory along with us. The big difference was, all the information stayed in Frank’s head and about 1% stayed with me”.


Wayne is a bit short on names, he reckons his memory has faded over the years, can anyone help fill in the gaps???
