FOUR officers from Victoria Barracks helped
raise $25,000 towards the Victorian flood
relief in a hard, dirty battle during the Pier to
Plate charity swim fundraiser at Brighton Pier
on February 19.
Organised by the Brighton Icebergers, the idea to join
the charity event was first floated by Col Roy Bird after
talking Capt Nigel Booker into joining him.
"The Brighton Icebergers are a group of clearly men-
tally unstable men who swim around Brighton Pier in
'budgies' and rubber hats every morning, 365 days of the
year," Capt Booker said.
After meeting with event organisers and Victorian
Premier Ted Baillieu over coffee, Capt Booker said the
Premier put the call out for other services and the may-
or's office to take on the Army in the challenge.
"I left that meeting bemused and concerned," Capt
"Col Bird was on leave and I was pre-committed --
we had no team."
The aptly named 'Sinking Suns' team of swimmers
eventually consisted of Majs Peter Symes and Stan
Carnes and Capts Matthew Scott and David Barton.
Army was joined by teams from the SES, police
service, fire service and the mayor's office ready to take
up the challenge swimming each leg of the 150m open
ocean relay course in full uniform -- minus boots.
After some last minute withdrawals, the other teams
combined into one consisting of Mr Baillieu, Federal
MP Andrew Rob and two police members.
In the end Army prevailed, but the clear winners were
the victims of the floods with more than 150 people on
the day contributing to the worthy cause.
