The great bushfire - all the cypress hedges burst into flames. A girl from Moe stayed with us. Very busy life in a country town; sport; church (Methodist) activities, walking in the bush. All the maintenance was provided by SEC. The war brought a new dimension to the town - air raid warnings, air raid shelters, black out rules.

My grandparents, Robert Dinsdale and Elsie (nee Mould) came to Australia in 1926 with their sons William (my Dad) and Robert.
They lived in Jumbuck for a while and then moved to Yallourn.
Robert Snr had been a miner in Yorkshire, but left due to a lung condition.
They lived at 38 Latrobe Avenue according to the Electoral Roll. The earliest one I have with that address is 1931.
I remember Dad saying that Elsie used to work as a cleaner at the school, but I have only seen her as "home duties" on the electoral rolls.
Elsie's parents, John Edward Mould and Annie (nee Coltman) came out to Australia in 1928. They lived with my Grandparents in Yallourn.
Robert died in 1937, about a week after my Dad's 21st birthday. He was buried on 18th August 1937 at the Yallourn Cemetery.
John Edward Mould died in May 1938. He was buried at the Yallourn Cemetery on 31st May 1938.
My Dad married Gladys Kenny of Trafalgar in 1941 and lived in Trafalgar after that. (He passed away in 1975.)....Ann Dinsdale
