         From a work perspective, September saw
the conclusion of SUMAN PROTECTOR 07,
another successful exercise from a 324CSS per-
spective. The Movers worked hard to get them
here and see them off, and the rest of the Squad-
ron did exceptionally well in providing support
during the three weeks or so of the Exercise. The
participants of the three supported nations – UK,
NZ and AS - were fullsome in their praise of the
excellent support provided during the exercise.
No sooner had SP07 finished than the team were

                                       A WWII Story
A short time ago I was fortunate enough to
accompany seven WWII veterans and two
widows who had come across for the
dedication of a new memorial at Parit Sulong
(on the sth west coast of Malaysia). They
were the most extraordinary bunch of people.
Amongst the many stories passed around over
that week none was more so than one told by
Charles Edwards. I will try to relate it as it
was told to me – in a very undramatic matter
of fact sort of way.

                               Selamat Hari
        Muslims celebrate the festival of Aidilfitri – popularly known as Hari Raya Puasa, or simply
Hari Raya (Day of Celebration) in Malaysia – to mark the culmination of Ramadhan, the holy month
of fasting. It is a joyous occasion for Muslims, as it signifies a personal triumph, a victory of self-
restraint and abstinence, symbolising purification and renewal. Because Islam uses the lunar cycle to
determine important days, Ramadhan and Syawal occur in different months in the Gregorian calendar
each year

        Hari Raya Aidilfitri officially begins at the sighting of the moon on the last day of Ramadhan,
and is the most joyous celebration of the Muslim community. The sighting of the first moon of the
following month, Syawal, by religious elders signals the eve of Hari Raya. The festival begins the
following day.

         Weeks before the big day, excitement mounts as the house is thoroughly cleaned and readied
for the celebration with new furnishing and decorations, and festive fare is feverishly prepared.
Flight, train and long distance coach tickets are quickly sold out as it is customary for Muslim fami-
lies to celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri together, while others take advantage of the two-day public holi-
day to go somewhere or return to their hometowns.

        Although the first three days are celebrated on a grander scale, many Muslims open the doors
of their homes to welcome all, bringing together people irrespective of creed, culture and position to
participate in the rejoicing. An open house brings people together regardless of their religion, position
or background. Local favourites like ketupat (rice wrapped in coconut leaves), peanut sauce and ren-
dang (a dry spicy beef dish) are served. Large scale open houses, like those organized by political fig-
ures are announced via the mass media. Due to the extraordinarily volume of attendees, large scale
open houses are usually held at venues big enough to hold colossal events. A steady stream of visitors
can be seen

        The usual greeting (that is uttered with the salam) during Aidilfitri is “Selamat Hari Raya”,
which means “Wishing you a joyous Hari Raya”. By far the most frequently used symbol is that of

                         CHARITY HEAD SHAVE - UPDATE
                                              St Nicolas’ School for the Blind

If you want to see three, four, five of the most stunning examples of the modern military man get it
 all off…..their hair that is, then come to the Hostie on Friday 18 Oct 07 and your satisfaction will be
         guaranteed. The top donors will have the honour of shaving the head of there choice.
                        All donations will be going to St Nicolas’ School for the Blind.
To make a donation, simply either:
E-mail me:       joseph.dowling@defence.gov.au
Call me:         0124 738 943,
I will also be collecting from the hostie from time to time

As we are currently sitting on around RM$ 3300.00 in donations, Gus’ morning routine will soon
been shortened by about 45 minutes (Maybe he’ll also stop stealing all Krissy’s product too!!!)

Due to the fact we have eased our way passed the 3k mark thanks to everyone’s very generous
donations, next in our sights is a lofty RM $6K. If this mark is reached, and a comprehensive risk
analysis is undertaken, and MSDS sheets are on hand, and shaving continuation training has been
completed, and a medical team is on standby, and it is run IAW SAFETYMAN, and…….then FLTLT
Scott Dagg will be the next victim under the blade.

                      Teach those Orphans
                           a lesson!

St Joseph’s Orphanage currently has 51 children. Last year the ADF was very generous with gifts at Christmas Time. As
much as you can with 51 children, St.Joseph’s tries to create a home environment where children feel cared for and where
they are given the best ‘start’ in life. Part of that is education. Many of you would have had the ‘joy’ of sitting down with
your children doing homework in the evenings!

At St.Jospeh’s there are 33 children in Primary and 17 in Secondary School. Each evening they sit down and do an hour or
so study from 7.30pm. Although some of the Secondary children who go to the afternoon session of school also have their
mornings free for study. It is also possible that there are some primary children available from 5-6pm. (I hope that hasn’t
sufficiently confused you).

Volunteers are needed to help the children in the areas of English, Math and Science. Note that the medium of teaching at
school for all of these subjects is English. Don’t be phased by all this – there is no expectation that you are Bruce Einstein.
At the moment most of these children have nothing – this is a dartboard where every shot is a bulls-eye! (Actually, as you
go down Burma and pass Codrington just on the left is an Educational supply shop that has everything you could possibly
need – I am happy to help).

Of course, one of the real areas of need, apart from English, Math and Science, is that the children need to feel friendship.
It is really very relaxed. You are being asked to spend a little time with some children. If, along the way, they learn some-
thing that is well and good. We get so much out of this community – go on, give it a bash. P’raps you would like to do it
as a family, and your older children can teach some of the younger children.

If you would like to help or simply look at the possibility (p’raps go and check out the place) please contact the Padre. Try
to have an idea of when you would like to go, what age group and subject area.

The only thing I would ask is that if you would like to help out, that you do it as a commitment.

Thank you
Ross Naylor

                   Halloween Fun Facts
~ Halloween is the 2nd largest holiday after Christmas in terms of dollars spent, accounting for over $5 bil-
lion in sales.

~ Halloween also is recognized as the 3rd biggest party day after New Year's and Super Bowl Sunday.

~ One quarter of the candy sold for the entire year is purchased around Halloween (between September and
November 10)

~ It was believed that ghosts came back to the earthly world and people thought that they would encounter
ghosts if they left their homes. To avoid being recognized by these ghosts, people would wear masks when
they left their homes after dark so that the ghosts would mistake them for fellow spirits.

~ Trick-or-treating is thought to have its origins in a European custom called souling where people would
beg for "soul cakes."

~ According to the folk tale, after a trickster named Jack died, he was denied entrance to Heaven because of
his evil ways, but he was also denied access to Hell because he had tricked the devil. Instead, the devil gave
him a single ember to light his way through the frigid darkness. The ember was placed inside a hollowed-
out turnip to keep it glowing longer becoming Jack's Lantern.

~ Over 10% of all pet owners dress their pets in a Halloween costume and the number increases each year.

~ October 2002, at a pumpkin festival in Massachusetts, the heaviest pumpkin in the world tipped the scales
at a mighty 1337.6 pounds.

~ 82 percent of children take part in Halloween festivities, along with a surprising 67 percent of adults, who
also join in the fun.

~ A pumpkin is a fruit

~ Samhainophobia: Fear of Halloween

          Reading4Life is a newly created, Malaysian volunteer organization. The charity is aiming to improve literacy in English in chil-
          dren’s homes, by providing books and reading support programs.
          Proficiency in English is recognized as being valuable to all children / people. For children from a disadvantaged background,
          good English skills can mean the difference between subsistence work options and jobs with some sort of career or earning

          The story so far:
          Volunteers have been going to the Sunshine Home in Kulim on the mainland. Books have been donated to establish a library
          and support is being provided.
          Our newest program is based at the Child Protection Society on Scotland Road, here on the island. We have 3 volunteers setting
          up a weekly reading support program and books have been donated to start their own library. The kids are enthusiastic and they
          love the attention they are getting. Eventually, the aim is to have 4 or 5 different children’s homes or orphanages being sup-
          ported by volunteers.
          You may well have some questions you are asking yourself.

          Why get involved? Why even bother?
          You can make a real difference to the quality of life of children, in the short and long term, by helping them improve their Eng-
          lish skills. Get to know some children intimately and show them that you care. How
          important is that!

          But what can I do?
          No. 1      – the most invaluable thing you can do, is to volunteer your time and passion for reading, and supporting kids in
                     need. If you could volunteer once a week for an hour or two - whatever you can do – it would be appreciated and
                     valued. If it can’t be a regular weekly commitment, I’m sure we can fit you in somewhere, somehow. We have a
                     registration form for volunteers, so please contact me (see below for details).

          No. 2 – go through your bookshelves to see if there are much loved books that your family have outgrown. We’re also collect-
                     ing any taped / CD stories to help support their reading when volunteers aren’t around. We are looking at a wide age
                     range, from 4 years old to teenagers. I’m happy to pick up books if necessary and books can be left at the Hostie
                     (look out for a box with the Reading4Life Logo on it).

          No. 3 – give me your email address if you’re interested in being kept up-to-date about what is needed or happening with the

          Who do I contact?
