They bid farewell to family and friends as they travelled for nearly eight years in England and The Philippines before settling in Brisbane, then Buddina.

Now, 65 years later, they will celebrate their anniversary with their family at their son’s home in Diddillibah.

The Armstrongs have four children, 10 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren so far.

Having lived in Buddina for 20 years, they are active members of Kawana Probus, Beerwah Golf Club and HTK Anglican Church.
