Pen pals meet at last
SERGEANT Dan Ferguson, recently returned from Afghanistan and now studying for his degree in physical education, caught up with pen pal Olivia Attenborough-Doyle of Banora Point in Canungra earlier this year.
Olivia and her family enjoyed meeting Sergeant Ferguson and were thrilled to be allowed a tour of the army base.
They even had a crack at the army's obstacle course – to their considerable amusement.
Olivia said it was great to meet a real gentleman.
The two new-found pals connected last year when the Centaur Primary School student wrote a letter of her appreciation to our Australian troops.
Sergeant Ferguson and the Attenborough-Doyle family agreed that they would keep in contact.
