    1976 Yallourn Reunion at George Bates Oval, Yallourn North

    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.

    Demolition

    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,

    Bevan.

    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.

    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. robjbell@optusnet.com.au

    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 robjbell@optusnet.com.au

    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.
