CHRISTMAS has come early for
WO Mark Duncan who, thanks to
the inaugural "Win With Navy" raf-
fle, is $5000 richer.
"I was in shock when they called
out my name as the winner," he said.
WO Duncan said negotiations with
his wife were underway to determine
how the money would be best spent
this festive season. His Christmas
wish is to buy a 1961 Holden he saw
advertised for $5000 in the newspaper
on the morning of the raffle draw.
"But I'll see what the wife says,"
WO Duncan, of FHQ Engineering
Division, said he never expected to
win the cash prize and only bought
tickets in the RAN Central Canteens
Board (CCB) raffle because it was a
good fundraiser for the Navy.
WO Duncan, who has never won
anything before in his 23 years in the
RAN, beat the odds to have one of
his five $2 tickets drawn from among
more than 13,000 entries nationwide.
He owes his good fortune to the
random selection software tool oper-
ated by Fleet Commander RADM
Steve Gilmore that drew ticket

could dampen the jovial spirits of
more than 3000 people who flocked
to Kuttabul on October 25, where
they toured HMA Ships Manoora,
Newcastle and Melbourne and a dozen
Navy-themed display booths.
Kuttabul's sailors relished the
opportunity to tell curious visitors
about the Navy lifestyle and a range
of other topics including recruiting
opportunities and sea deployments.
LSCSO Steve Harvey greeted
several hundred fascinated visitors to
Newcastle and answered their ques-
tions about how the FFGUP contrib-
utes to Fleet operations and the secu-
rity of Australia.
"A lot of young people expressed
interest in the Navy lifestyle with a
view to joining the RAN," he said.
Manoora's sailors were also kept
busy answering questions about the
new MRH90s that were embarked
for sea trials, with CPO James Bond
saying many people were fascinated
to learn of the Navy's new maritime

RADM Gilmore said it was fan-
tastic odds that the raffle winner was
among the 100 sailors gathered at FHQ
for the special draw on November 26.
"I didn't buy a ticket this time
because I couldn't risk winning the
money myself," he joked.
"Win with Navy" is a raffle run by
