Maritime Logistics Community News : December 2008
16 NAVY SUPPLY NEWSLETTER SPRING 2008 All the students did well in class and the warries, whether they were about Philomel Naval Base in Auckland, DDGs, or driving Contiki buses through Europe certainly enlivened the audience and made the class enjoyable to teach. A blurb on this course could not conclude without mentioning Statler and Walfdorf (from the Muppets for our younger readers), in their alter ego forms as SBLTs Neil Krauklis and Marsh Quintieri. Their input from the back of the class was certainly informative and their antics, especially on the sporting field were entertaining to us all. SUAC Phase III 01/07 – January-February 2008 (Course Manager: LEUT Kean) Returning from sea to complete the next Phase of their training with the addition of LEUT Bill Tannock and his wealth of knowledge, the 01/07 course jumped into the revised course with enthusiasm. The level of Supply knowledge they had accumulated over Phase I and II was proven to be of a high standard with their Operational Logistics presentations to the panel consisting of CMDR Nick Matthews (SYSCOM SO), LCDR Greg Crass (OIC FLSE-C) and LEUT Jeremy Richards (ADFSC), being awarded high marks and significant praise. AROUND THE FOUNTAIN (L TO R): MIDN MATT NORRIS, MIDN CHRIS HARvEY, MIDN NATHAN SMITH, SBLT MARK TAYLOR, MIDN ANDREW TAIT, LEUT BILL TANNOCK, MIDN NICOLE WARD, SBLT MARSH QUINTIERI, MIDN ALEx COLRAIN, SBLT NEIL KRAUKLIS, MIDN ROB PLATER IN THE FOUNTAIN (L TO R): LEUT DAN HERITIER (OI-SS 2), CMDR STEPHANIE MOLES (DTA-LOG SHF), LEUT DONNA KEAN (OI-SS 1) SUAC Phase III (03/06) – September-November 2007 (Course Manager: LEUT Kean) A very diverse mix of trainees, from direct entry to ADFA grad with both Junior and Senior Sailor changeovers also thrown into the mix proved for very stimulating class discussion and very strong presentations for their major assessment which were well received by CMDR Mathews (SYSCOM SO), who flew in for the presentations to join the rest of the panel. The Swim Club appreciates the hefty donation the class made by consuming “guilt-free” fundraising chocolate during their time on course, the Team will be thinking of your charitable efforts during the next Open Water Swimming season! BACK L TO R: SBLT TYSON NICHOLAS, MIDN SCOTT CARTER, SBLT APHRODITE BOTTCHER, SBLT MICHAELA RAMSAY (NEE NICOL), LEUT DAN HERITIER (OI-SS 2), LEUT ANDREW THORPE, LEUT WILLIAM TANNOCK, SBLT LUKE DENNARD FRONT: L TO R: SBLT DEBRA ALLEN, SBLT LYNDLE WILLIAMS, SBLT PAUL TUCKER, SBLT KYLIE ROBSON, SBLT ADELAIDE HARRINGTON SUAC Phase III 02/07 – May – July 2008 (Course Manager: LEUT Heritier) The final time a SUAC class would be instructed concluded with a mix of DE, SE and ADFA Graduates who brought some entertaining warries from sea and a former “BADSO” of LEUT Kean’s, which provided some ammunition for students in more social environs. Additionally, for the first time in a while, outgoing Phase II ASOs were able to give a comprehensive handover to the graduating SOAC 01/08 class which we hope to replicate for every graduating class from now on. Once again, the high quality of work produced by this course concluded with exceptional Operational Logistics presentations and allowed CMDR Mathews (SYSCOM SO) once again to see the students that would be working in the FLSE environment until Nov 08.
