    YPS 1958 Grade 6B

    Between Peter Charleston and "Bill" Abery is either Chris or Doug Robertson. Think it's Chris. Doug is in the next row on Peter Pooley's left. The Robertson's lived opposite the pub. Mrs R made great pies and pasties which the boys and others sold at the pub. They later moved to Moe.
    Yes it's not Wally Abery nor Bill, but Peter Abery. Bill was Peter's nickname - think that Bill was his father. John White could confirm as they lived in the same street.
    Next to Bert Hopman is Barry Davis - from Hernes Oak.
    Is it Alan Ashmore or Graham Coburn?

    Ivy and Bill Needham were my godparents. They didn't have any children.
    Ivy (helped by Bill) did florist work at home. They made the arrangement and wreaths for most of the weddings and funerals in the town (Margaret Welshe (Cain))

    Scouts - Rovers

    As a scout back in the mid 50's I loved going up to Mt Erica with the Schole's Victor and his father George. So much so I always hoped that ther was snow. To get to the huts it was a feat to be believed as we had to carry everything that we wanted for that time. Yes the huts were basic but comfortable but the views from mushroom rock was totally out of this world.

    Yalllourn Guest House Office Place (Entry)

    My Mum and Dad managed this guest house circa 1948 to 1951 (not totally certain). Vera and Fred Hancock. Regrettably they both passed away in 2000. I did not have the foresight to extract a history of their life in Yallourn from them.

    I was born at Yallourn Hospital in 1950.
