    Hi All.
    A friend sent me an e-mail telling me to read this post. You all know that I never posted a bad post about anyone on this site, I don't know if this will be seen by all or not
    Allen Burrows was a bloke that set out to destroy the Sydney Vindicatrix Association, his personal attacks on Roy Derham the man who set up the Vindi association which has been enjoyed by thousands of ex Vindi boys for over twenty years one of whom I believe was Capt Warwick speaks for itself. Pure jealousy is a nasty thing when it takes hold, there for the Grace of God does not hold for Mr Burrows. Thankfully The late Terry Hales set up a new Vindi Association in Sydney which I still belong to. The majority of our stalwart members joined. The other association turning to dust where it belonged .
    Brain I'm sorry to post this way but the memory of all those Vindi boys represented on that memorial deserve better. A Young Vindi lad from our village died on his first trip in 1944i.

    We had one like that in England Des, I cannot think of his name at the moment.
    He started an alternative Vindi Association, he was from Hull, he was a big bully type of person and with his mates they had a meeting in Fleetwood, a few years ago, A few of us , with Roy and a few others went to see what was going on, He was going to batter Roy Derham but I got a grip of him and sorted him out.
    He was using the fees he was charging his members, to live on and was also planning to go to Australia on the members money , so I phoned the Tax people and the DHSS, and they sorted him out,
    Not heard of him since.
    I last spoke to Roy last September when my brother, a member, died.

    PS: By the way Mr Jenkins. Capt Warwick was a Conway Boy, not a Vindi Boy. Another case of a faulty memory eh!!
