Where are they now?

Name at Nagle: Craig Guthrie // Name now: // Graduating Year: 2002 // Nagle House: MacKillop

13/9/2019: It was wonderful to read in the local papers that Craig will be recognised as a veteran of recent conflict at a local ceremony being conducted by the RSL. Craig enlisted in the army in January 2002, having only just completed his Year 11 studies. Craig completed his basic training at Kapooka and was posted to the Royal Australian Corps of Transport as a driver. He spent time in Townsville and Ross Island in Queensland prior to being deployed to East Timor. He then served on border protection patrols at the top end of Australia and was awarded the Australian Operational Service Medal for Border Protection.

Craig is now working in civil construction as a machine operator. We congratulate Craig for his achievements whilst serving in the Armed Forces and for this recent accolade by the RSL. Craig's sister, Sally Guthrie, was also recognised at this ceremony for her years of service in the Australian Navy.
