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")
The girl 5th from the left (at the back) is Barbara Braun. The girl second from the right (in the green) is Bernadette Curran.
Apologies Yallourn followers. I read 1960, whereas the wording above picture say's 1960's.
From memory; the second row, Mr Jones, Mr Hansen. Archie Robertson. Others that are in photo but I cannot pick out are J B Kain, Mr Lawson, Mr Chistie, . The principal at the time was Mr E L Willison
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.
I bet Kevin Brogan will know a few!!!!

Hey Bob...how about writing something about the Fire Station and life there for all to share? Julie
Bill white and Dodge and Bedford. My guess near cloure of fire station.
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.
Robert now living in Langwarrin
Joy recently moved to Tin Can Bay to be nearer children and more importantly first grandson
Comments from Bob
On right Merril McPherson née Murray and on her right is bev Reynolds née green lees.
I will get Merril to identify the others a bit later
Julie, last week I read obituary on Charles Trethowan in The Age newspaper.
A wild guess. Woman on far right from Yallourn North (or Tyers) ?Murray, second from right Beth Greenlees from Yallourn North.
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 it may be Wendy Shankland
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.

2nd row is Jan Daddo
