Angus Baird emailed from Indonesia:

Hi Peter,

I see so many familiar names on your site that I am inspired to add mine.

I am Angus Baird and I worked at the Anewa bay Power House from (I think) 81 ~ 86 and then again returned after two years and stuck it out until we were sent home. I remember that the day before I got on the plane to go back for the second stint I heard that they had started blowing things up. ‘What have I done!’ I thought to myself.

Like many of the other refugees, since BCL, I have worked all around the place on various projects. Currently I am Owner’s rep on a 660MW coal fired project in West Java.

I should be thinking about retirement (62 next month) but can't see it happening for a while yet. I still enjoy work even though I do tend to complain about it a bit. There are many of us Boomers now still working and I have worked with guys well into their 70s and still going strong.

Your site is wonderful, thank you for all the effort that you must have put in to creating and maintaining it.

Are there any recent photos of how things look now?

Take Care
