Hi, and Welcome
to our Gentry Class
I have wanted to build this website for such a long time and now finally I have done it!
The aim of this website is to enable all of us who were in Gentry Class in the year 1962 at the Regular Force Cadet School, Waiouru,
to be able to communicate with one another by e-mail, phone, Skype or whatever as well as to organise a Class Reunion.
Not only will we be able to keep in touch with one another, especially those overseas, but also for me to communicate with you all to
arrange for "Gentry Class Re-unions" and "get togethers".
I on many occasions think back to my past and my three years that I spent in "God's last creation" (Waiouru Military Camp). I think of
all the classmates that we had in our intake of Gentry Class in 1962.
Where are they now? Are they still with us? What are they doing in their latter years?
This year 2019, it will be exactly 57 years ago since all 114 of us joined the Regular Force Cadet School. I think that 114 is the largest
intake ever. (I am sure that is correct!).
It is about time that our class has a Reunion as we are all getting on in years!
Patrick Duggan via the RF Cadet Facebook page suggested that we should get a Re-union under way and to have it in 2017 giving plenty of
notice for everyone to prepare and save for it. Patrick suggested that we have it in Christchurch! Why not?
I have encluded a word document called "Our Details" page
, which you can download, fill in your
details and email it back to me with photos so that I can put your details onto the website for other Gentry Class members to be able to
see and communicate with you.
It also has a couple of questions regarding a re-union for some feedback. We value your feedback and input.
It will also be an opportunity for our class mates to make contact with one another through the "Our Details" page. This can be continously
updated as we "age"!!
"Click" on to this link to see my "Details" page as an example.
There were only 5006 of us cadets that entered the Regular Force Cadet Schools in it's entire history. There were only 114
that were Gentry Clas
Let's celebrate that fact while we still can! (or remember it!!!)
I invite all "Gentry Class Members" to communicate this message to all the rest of our class mates and please
communicate all your details to me so that I can get our website up to date.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Have a Great 2019
