John Ruffles and the name ‘Jestyn’
John Ruffles is almost a brother. This is a qualification that is extremely hard to come by as it entails long residency at Bondi Beach and a few contacts amongst the renegade South Bondi crew, the blood brothers.
‘Call me Ruffles,’ he said today when I rang.’What do I call you?’
We spoke for 20 minutes. I filled him in.
By now he’s read Gordon Strapp’s deposition again and found the mention of striped trousers. Ruffles told me he had never taken notice of it before. So now he’s a member of that club too. The one I’m chairman of.
We never noticed it either.
Ruffles gave me something for the burrowers, which means I owe him beer and oysters when we meet.
He gave me a link between Ballet, a person(s) named Jestyn and Robin Thomson.

Ruffles has also spoken to Boxall … and Alf told him Jessica wrote and signed the inscription. Methinks Alf wrote the verse number hisself.
Thanks, John Ruffles.
