... My father worked with Mansel Chalmers at Advanx Motors in Cairns as a truck salesman and  
was good friends with many of the other men of his company.

When he wasn't attending the Regiment  he was cutting cane, hunting crocs, water skiing on Lake Placid, 
riding horses in show jumps and chasing pretty young women.

Just before he passed away, one nurse said of him "He's a real man's man".....
