Miscellaneous OFARTS Photos

From:  Raymond Fortin February 2015


From: Terrance Hayes June 01, 2012

Was going through the  photo gallery and noticed my name is missing from the Bonn Softball team. Missing from the Paris broomball team because I took the photo. Below is one of our teams from Beirut. We played two seasons each year. We were called the Colonials because we picked up a couple of Aussies but also filled in with a few players who needed a team to play with. One of the players went on to be an Ambassador. One season we had a player called Peter Jennings who became a well-known broadcaster; he only played one or two games. We had a player who was a reporter from Newsweek as well but his name escapes me. We had a Lebanese player who could pitch but couldn't throw overhand and wasn't much of a fielder either. A Canadian priest who was teaching in Lebanon. Interesting place but about to blow up near the end of our tour.


In addition to Ron Cooke, Tim Sullivan and a bearded Terry Hayes, this team iced Roger Bull who married Bob Rickman's wife and the infamous Frank Sale

Thought I send some pictures on how I am planning to spend the summer. This is my new (used1984) sailboat Lorelei 3. Great little 23 footer, with a good wind she cruises an easy 6 knots.

A post-TSIWG course gathering.

The photo above was taken in Seoul when Ray and I visited. Ester Gardner (bless her soul) arranged for us to visit Pan Mon Jom, the UN supervised truce site. Here we dined with the Swiss General and joined an American tour that entered the Quonset hut where the belligerents met to settle truce violations. The hut straddles the border and you can cross into North Korea inside the building. It was very interesting visit because the Americans and South Koreans were posted on the South Korean side and the North Koreans and Chinese were posted on the North Korean side. The hateful stares from the North Korean side were almost frightening. The photo was take Feb 2/82. - T. G. (Terry) Hayes

Terry Hayes submitted this undated photo above of Don Cole taken visiting the National Maritime Museum in San Francisco.



I think these three photos of Don Cole, Clive England me and Don were taken in 1987. I remember Don doing the tests for word processor leaks and he recovered something that looked like pages of Arabic or Iranian text. We knew it wasnít ours, so didnít investigate further.

This Bonn photo was was from the enclosure refurbishing in 1986 or 1987; we had a large crew of Brits and our radiation testing team. There was also a team of CMís training Bonn staff on new equipment.
