Letter Entitled "TRANNIE"
Gan Island Post 25th November 1972
Dear Sir,
The current 'trannie' farewell system is distressing and most embarrassing. The sight of grown men hanging over
a picket fence paying their respects to their comrades presents an open prison atmosphere to the people that
are passing through.

Whilst fully appreciating the need for some curtailment in the matter for over boisterous farewells, surely a system
of selectivity could be introduced?

May I suggest that a chitty be issued with every clearance card on which a man may enter the names of say four
of his closest friends. The man, his self, could then be held responsible for the behaviour of his mates (under threat
of off-loading if needs be). But anything must be an improvement on the present ghastly situation.
