    Scouts - Rovers

    I remember being part of that, although I was only a Scout at the time. We took up loads of timber flooring, with about three people per a bundle (they were VERY heavy)!. We did a couple of trips taking the shortcut track back to the car park, and walking the long way up (not so steep)

    Then I recall the opening of the refurbished hut, with lots of folks taking the walk up the Mt to have a cuppa, hear some speeches, reminisce then walk back down again.

    The girl 5th from the left (at the back) is Barbara Braun. The girl second from the right (in the green) is Bernadette Curran. The girl 4th from the left is Mary Tabazynski. According to my sister the girl hidden behind the Guide is most likely Margaret Cox ( because, believe it or not, she used to dress like that and " I recognise her clothes")

    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.

    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.
