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.
l to r Unknown, Rhonda Rogers, Olga Djordevic, Toni Tabysznski
It was Graeme Black, not sure of Mrs Blacks name though.
The plan is now correct for No 10 Allambee Cres.
The boy between Colin Johnston and Neville Gorman is Alan McMaster.
The missing name (2nd from right) is Alan McMaster.
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.
MURRAY CHAMPION, son of Mary (Mollie) and Albert (Bert) both dec from 27 Driffield Road sadly passed away very suddenly at home on Sept 29 at Skenes Creek (Sth West Victoria).
A memorial gathering will be held at the Skenes Creek Estuary on November 11 (Murray's birthday) at 1pm and a plaque memorial will be unveiled in honour of his outstanding contributions to the community. Anyone that knew Murray is most welcomed to attend.

Teacher Graham Budd
G'day all I'm currently making a newsletter for tafe about the relocation of some of the houses in Yallourn and was wondering if any one knows whether any of the houses made it to Wirilda Park in Tyres, I know some made it to Old Gippstown but other than that I really have no idea so any help would be appreciated.
Your endeavoring historian,
Yes the teacher was Graeme Ingles. he eventually left teaching and worked as an Engineer with the SEC
I think the Mr Davies you refer to may have been Tom Davey - Tom was very actice in the Reserves - he was an Officer and also worked in the Power Stations at Yallourn and Hazelwood
Hi Helen, thanks for that comment. I will see Christine in the next couple of days and tell her you've been in touch, she will be excited. She loves to talk about her Yallourn days and your name comes up often. In this photo you may recognise Kellys and Garlands Houses. I remember Ray Garland and I think your brother Ross used to cut my hair.
`Teachers name is Mary Jones and she was an English teacher
John and Margaret were our next door neighbours. Our eldest daughter Cathy loved to play with the Jame's girls. They had a horse in a nearby paddock which our Cathy was almost in love with it. Sadly we were never in a position to get her one of her own. firstname.lastname@example.org
Peter and Miriam were friends of ours. My wife Therese remembers Miriam and her baby (or is that babies? Sorry) very fondly. I have one or two photos of Miriam helping Therese with our little children at our home in 82 Church St. If you see this Peter or Miriam a contact would be much appreciated email@example.com
I highly recommend Prue McGoldrick's Book "Yallourn Was" ISBN 0 9590994 0 9.
200 Pages with loads of pictures, memories and stories.
Maybe Prue may let you publish some of it on this site.
