    Hail storm for Yallourn in 1966

    Christmas Day 1966 visiting friends in Tanjil Cres when the clouds looked very ominous. I sought the best view of the wet from the junction of Tanjil Cres. and Tanjil place and was enthralled by the cloud dynamics and the frontal roll cloud with nothing but dark matt grey behind. Suddenly there was a clunk behind me and as I turned another to the side. When I saw the size of the hailstone I made a dash for the verandah passing Murray Phillips in his hard had racing to garage his FX Holden. When the spectacle was over I selected the largest I could readily find which measured 4 1/2 inches across its widest diameter, not being completely spherical.
    The next day revealed many patches to the fibro cement roofs and pockmarked cars.

    Doris King was my grandmother. My father was Malcolm King and we would visit during the school holidays. Doris used to manage the Yallourn Hospital kiosk. Does anyone have any further information?

    Gordon Brill was actually born in Frankston 1965 (not Yallourn) after our family moved to Cranbourne so can probably be removed from the Yallourn website (Kaye - Sept 2019)

    Gate Across Railway Ave + Garden St - 1985

    Can't work this one out. The Corner of Garden/Railway was Fosters Garage next to the pub. Those trees are not remembered.
