A Morning to Remember - Centenary of the Anzacs

Posted by A Positive Move Pty Ltd on 30 April 2015

Our Anzac Eve Breakfast last Friday morning could not have been a better tribute to the men and women who fought and gave their lives for our freedom.

Our host Stan Alves OAM together with celebrity/sport speaker Kevin Sheedy AM paid tribute to our brave war heroes with heartfelt presentations. Guest speakers, Don Kinsey AM provided some history on General Sir John Monash  who is considered to be one of the best Allied Generals of the First World War and the most famous in Australian history. Sir John was also one of the principal organisers of the observance of Anzac Day and oversaw the planning for the Shrine of Remembrance. We heard about the Gallipoli campaign and the history behind the landing at ANZAC Cove in WW1.



Guests were treated to a first hand account from our Gold Member Silvio Marinelli from Highview Acounting Services and good friend Joe Hackett, who conquered the Kokoda Track last year to raise awareness for their mate Sean Mulqueen and his charity  Walking Wounded.
It was inspiring to hear about the charity and the journey undertaken to support a mate, embodying the true spirit of the Anzacs.





We'd like to thanks our sponsors, Chandler Macleod, MCP Group and all of our members and their guests for being part of our commemorations for the 100 Year Centenary of the Anzacs, it certainly was a very special morning. 

All who attended took home a living 'Rosemary Gallipoli' seedling, originating from a cutting brought back from Gallipoli by a soldier  after WW1. Thanks to Gold Members Mansfield`s Propagation Nurseries for supplying the Rosemary and helping us to support our charities. 

We'd like to thank our Sponsors, Chandler Macleod, MCP Group and all of our Members and their guests for being part of our commemorations for the 100 Year Centenary of the Anzacs, it certainly was a very special morning.

Israel "Jack" Custerson

Posted by A Positive Move Pty Ltd on 14 April 2015

ISRAEL "JACK" CUSTERSON

13th Australian Infantry Battalion
1914-1918
Service Number: 1204



Growing up in our family home we were always taught to respect this " SACRED" day by our beautiful parents.

I always associated the word SACRED belonging more to the church....rather than ANZAC DAY. If you look up the word SACRED in the dictionary it says- holy, revered. You then look up Revere and it says "REGARD WITH DEEP RESPECT!!!"
No wonder my parents felt that way, they made sure their children knew about the sacrifice that many of our family and friends made over the generations ensuring we lived peacefully in this magnificent country of ours, Australia.
Firstly, my Grandfather- Israel "Jack" Custerson emigrated DOWN UNDER when he was a mere 16 years of age from England. When War broke out TWO years later, he enlisted in the AIF.

My Grandad was a very private man and never made a fuss or discussed his time in WW1 and didn' t really get involved in the March or ANZAC DAY celebrations.

But I can clearly remember a Sunday afternoon visit up in the family home at Monbulk when I was about 16 where he shared "just a little chat" about the Germans and being "hit", taken prisoner of war and held captured by the Germans in hospital until the WAR was over.

The Battle of Bullecourt was a disaster where over1500 Australians were captured and taken POW. It's now many years since my Grand Dad passed away, and it's only now that you really appreciate the sacrifice the brave men and women like "he" endured for our freedom.

Upon his return to Australia, he married Vera Williams, had a large family of eight children in Leeton, NSW on a Soldiers Settlement Farm where he grew oranges, peaches and lived off the land. He lived a long, healthy and happy life passing away at the age of 89 years.
My mother tells me of her memories when her brothers were going off to the Second World War and how their life was changed so dramatically when "the boys were away"..with mum being one of 12 children you can only imagine how this would have affected them all.

My mum's brother Tom passed away in 2012 at 92 years of age. He was such a larger than life man who proudly served his country as a Commando with Curtin's Cowboys- a crack group of horsemen who were the SECRET EYES of Australia keeping watch over this precious land of ours from the swarming Japanese Army. Uncle Tom will be sadly missed at this years Anzac Day march and celebrations.
I can also remember as a small kid of about five or six being at the big "SEND OFF" for my cousin Len Martin at their family home in Dandenong. Len was off to serve in Vietnam and I can remember the tears and the many prayers my Mum prayed for the safe return of her nephew.
So, it's little wonder why we were taken to the Anzac Day March year after year, which was then always followed by the Commemorative Mass at St Mary's Church with a cup of tea and sandwich after that.

Thanks Mum and Dad for showing us the way all of these years....you are correct...... IT CERTAINLY IS A SACRED DAY!

Going the whole Hogg during the Cricket World Cup

Posted by A Positive Move Pty Ltd on 11 March 2015

As the cricket World Cup approaches, we wanted to share some of the story behind one of our A Positive Move family, Rodney Hogg.
Hoggy is a former Australian cricketer who played in 38 Tests and 71 ODIs between 1978 and 1985, primarily as a lightning quick fast bowler In Tests he took 123 wickets at an average of 28.47.

What many people wouldn't know is that Hoggy started out as a batsman, before switching to bowling. Not being able to break into the Victorian side in his early years, he moved to South Australia, where he began his career in 197576.
His improvement was rapid, and he came to national prominence playing for Australia during the 197879 Ashes home series versus England, when Australia was without their number one frontline fast bowler, Dennis Lillee. Hogg filled the void taking 41 wickets at an average of 12.85 during the six-match series, including six wickets on debut in the first innings of the first Test!

In 1979 Hogg was involved in an incident that had tongues wagging. On the second day of the second Test between India and Australia in Bangalore, after being no-balled 11 times in just 6 overs, Hogg bowled a beamer, kicked down the stumps and stormed off the field! We are yet to have anyone say that an audience with Hoggy is not emotional, fun and of strong opinion!

During the 198485 season, Hogg was made the vice-captain of Australia. Not long after however,  Kim Hughes resigned the captaincy, and both he and Hoggy signed up for 2 "Rebel Tours" to South Africa during apartheid times. While this gave him a three-year ban and practically ended his international career, it again highlighted the strong mindedness he continues to exhibit in his post-playing career, formaerly as a bowling coach and currently as a corporate/celebrity/sports speaker, and cricket commentator, A Positive Move is lucky to have a relationship with.
Hoggy's autobiography is titled The Whole Hogg - Inside the mind of a lunatic fast bowler. Among chapters of great stories in his book, he predicted in his The Truth newspaper column that then unknown leg spinner Shane Warne, who had not even played for Victoria at the time, would take 500 test wickets. He was sacked from the column soon after. Warne finished his Test career with 708 wickets!

If your company is considering any type of event during the World Cup, Hoggy is the type of Keynote speaker that will have your audience speaking about his presentation long after your event has finished!

Our Aussies.. Highest score in World Cup History

Posted by A Positive Move Pty Ltd on 6 March 2015

Australia`s first game against Engalnd resulted in a great win by 111 runs! The game was a phenomenal opener for the World Cup for our Aussies, with Steve Smith producing an amazing diving catch to claim the wickets of Jos Buttler!
 
Australia's second game against Bangladesh was abandoned due to weather in Brisbane. In their third round, the Aussies took on New Zealand where they were dominated for most of the match, but in true Aussie "never give up' style, there was almost an upset with New Zealand requiring 6 runs with one wicket in hand. The game may have resulted in a loss for Australia but it was one of the best turnarounds ever, with Mitch Starc's six-wicket haul!

Australia took on Afghanistan last night in Perth with a resounding win for the Aussies, posting the highest total score in World Cup History of 6/417. This game see`s us at the half way mark of this year's ICC Cricket World Cup, and we're more than ready for our Cricket World Cup Breakfast on the 27th of March at the Atlantic with MC and champion cricketer, SIMON O`DONNELL and guest speaker, former cricket superstar, ADAM GILCHRIST, there's sure to be lots of action!!!

Why not have one of our speakers speak at your next function, charity event or sporting events or even have one of our other cricketing legends including Max Walker, Kerry O'Keeffe, Greg Ritchie, Rodney Hogg, Damien Fleming and many others!
