Needle in a haystack stuff.... Thankfully the seas were calm, just imagine how hard it would have been to spot a white hull if the seas were choppy! Life jackets, GPS, flairs, just wondering if they had any of these on board, guessing not! Also wonder the cost of the search - 1 x fix wing, 3 x heli, Police, Ambulance, SES

So many prayers went out for the boys return 💕 thank you to all the rescuers involved.

Wow so lucky to be found. Your parents must be over the moon. Well done WAPOL and all involved in this search and rescue. 👍👍

Our rescue service's are amongst the best in the world. Imagine the euphoria when these two were spotted, and when these two young men spotted the chopper from they're little raft! Much love to everyone involved, and to the families, you got you're babies back :)

Great outcome, after a very irresponsible exercise. Well done to the rescuers.

Excellent news... To be honest when I heard about the search, given the boat, and the area, I immediately thought the worst. Hats off to all of the searchers.

Great news. Thanks to all the search and rescue teams. Job well done!!!

Two very lucky boys and one very happy family, great effort by all involved in the search and rescue

The family must be so very relieved. So glad it was a good outcome. Well done to those involved in the search and rescue. Time to hug your kids!

My heart sank hearing the news of them missing on the radio today. So so glad they were rescued . Well done to all involved finding them. Excellent effort. 👍

Great news - glad these two lads didn’t panic - glad we have such great volunteer and employed rescue crews 😊

Wonderful news!! They're very lucky! Great job to all involved!

Fantastic news. Well done to emergency services. We’re lucky to have you. Glad the boys are ok.

Settle a family argument. Fact: If you don’t say Uno on your last card EVERY time, you don’t win. True or False ...

If you don't say UNO you have to pick up another card and you can't play it until your turn comes around again.

True and you have to pick up 4 cards if called out

If someone calls you out you have to pick up a card.

True - if u have 2 cards and put one down u have to say uno before the next person’s turn. If you don’t and someone calls u on it then you have to pick up a card - but if nobody calls u on it and u get your last card down without anyone saying “wait, u didn’t say uno!” then you win, regardless of not saying uno.

Oh look, the rules say you draw two if you don't say uno. Debate settled.

True in a sense, but you need to be more specific When you’ve played your second to last card you must say UNO. But if you already have said UNO and it comes back to you. No need to say it if you are going out, but obviously if you pick up and play that card, you must say UNO (And if someone says caught, Draw Two also)

False. U don’t loose, u pick up two cards. U can still win from there again



True 😀

True but only if someone picks you up on it


True, I've been playing this game for almost 40 years!

True. It's written in the rules. 2 card pickup.

UNO on your second last card

and you have to pick up an extra 2 cards! ☺


True ...... 😂😂


True.. 😊


True 😃



True that ❤️

Very special

Thank you for your service...

Amazing photos on a special day your mates with you in spirit thank you for your service.

Thank you

My Brother In Law led the Queensland Police contingent in the Brisbane ANZAC Parade for a couple of years running some years ago. Respect for these people.

It was always a challenge and an honour to write the operation orders for this and the many other major City Anzac Day events in my time at Metro Area Office - 1967 to '82.

It should be called the no more Nazis march. That was the whole point you know

Get rid of the Nazis. Not let them in Australian government hello idiots

Cops are tops

Congratulations a job well down

This Contingent ,Smart ,Proud ,Tough

Let the traditions continue!

Great experience for me as guest of Manly Warringah Pipe Band! I was really touched and as Swiss a never forgetable day!!! 🇦🇺🇨🇭
