Order of the Guinea Pig
Royal Navy - Operation Dominic 1961-1962 Christmas Island
Hello Jesse. This is Pete Bryant. Do you remember me. I played football against you, army against navy. I remember also, Jonno Johnson, Tug Wilson, Slinger Slinsby who all played along side you. I captained the island team against the cruiser Crane. Would be nice to hear from you. Saw your photo in the magazine from xmas 61.
Hi Pete, this is Alan Owen, Jesse's son. Jesse passed away in 1994 aged just 52. I am glad you remember him playing football, he was a very good player who had professional papers offered to him before he went into the Navy. Any pictures or stories you have would be great. My sister Laura would love to here them.
Hi Alan, Pete Bryant again. l was really sad to hear about Jesse. He was a real good lad. Very genuine and always smiling. I will try to get to the national memorial arboretum in October and maybe we could have a good chat then. Best wishes. Pete.
