Sam was a big red headed bloke who was an Internal Courier at the Old Guv Netley Complex.
Always had a lot to say, listened in on conversations and talked a lot of bullshit. Just like all of us!
I believe that in his younger days he was a pretty fair Footballer and Professional Sprinter who won the Bendigo Handicap Running Race in 1950
After a year or so at the Guv. he was promoted to being an Internal Security Attendant (similar to “flipping” Bert Cotton).
Unfortunately, Sam used his position of trust to rip off the Comp Room Deli’s Scratchie Ticket fundraiser.
He was eventually sprung by a resourceful and cunning night shift proofreader.
Sam got the boot for that indiscretion after he admitted that he had been stealing from his workmates.
And, YES it is the same Sam.
