    Year 1960 seems too early for the fashion shown in photograph. More like late 60's. Fourth young woman from l to r looks like Mary Tabazynski. Young woman second from left is familiar, as is fifth young woman from left. Also young woman on the extreme right wearing a pink cardigan also looks familiar.

    The dodge on right is WW2 war excess from USA and was the first fire truck in Australia with a first aid hose reel, ie live water supply from truck pump and tank. It is currently in the MMFB museum .

    We moved from church st. To flat 4 at the opening of the new Fire Station and mum and dad were there until his retirement, then moving to Newborough.
    Flat 4 was then used as a B A training area.

    KEVIN BROGAN - MAYOR OF YALLOURN

    Julie, I agree. How did Kevin know the young woman on the left is Wendy Shankland - the red hair. Kevin Brogan for Mayor.

    I think the unkown is Wendy ??? (from Yallourn North. The man (half facing the camera ) is Dudley Sharpe. I think the other man is Murray McCrae. I will eventually think of Wendy's name.

    I can't remember who it was but I do remember running with lights out for a wide game and somebody ran full belt in to a barbed wire fence! Good camp though.
