On Monday 16th October 2017, a group of NSW Retired Fingerprint experts from the Brisbane Branch got together for socialising. The get together was organised by Kevin RAMM (non fingerprint but GD's) at the Redlands Sports Club, Wellington Point Qld. A great club with good facilities. Getting together was 90 year old former Officer in Charge George DODDS, our Chairman Graham RUTTER, Graham DEVANEY with his lovely wife Dawn, and Valma and Kevin RAMM. Lovely photo of group enjoying a good catch-up. George loved the occasion and wants more of them.
