  1. Good afternoon Robyn – A few words to express my appreciation in seeing you on the ABCTV Compass Program “Modern Prophets – Defence Chaplains” last Sunday. We were very excited to see you but had difficulty recognising you as the girl I remembered in Toowoomba days. A couple of the clips throughout the program convinced me it was the Robyn Kidd I knew back in the late 80’s/early 90’s. A comment you made to me back then was, “that I always made you feel part of the team”. No doubt you have forgotten making the comment but I haven’t and have included it (somewhere) in my memoirs. Would love to hear from you, if it is possible – you haven’t been forgotten – Syd Abrahams (ex- Chinchilla)
