OUR ANZACS

Fort Nepean fires first shots of both world wars By Chris Brennan THIS year marks one hundred years since the outbreak of hostilities that would avalanche into the optimistically dubbed “war to end all wars” and the prominent role played by the Mornington Peninsula in the events of 1914 is now the stuff of international legend. A shot from assassin’s handgun in Sarajevo was the catalyst that would propel the world’s great powers into the orgy of seemingly senseless carnage that would become The Great War. But it was a blast from the naval artillery guns of Port Nepean on the southern tip of the peninsula that would be forever recorded as the first shots fired by the British Empire in the war. Given Australia’s enthusiastic embrace of military ventures in defence of “the realm” and considering the time difference that places Down Under the best part of a day ahead of our Northern Hemisphere allies, it is perhaps not all that surprising that the colony’s most formidable fortification should figure so prominently in the chronology of events rapidly unfolding in northern winter of 1914.

But what is truly astonishing is that those very same guns mounted at Point Nepean at the heads of Port Phillip would end up firing The Empire’s first shots of the Second World War as well. Those two events – the first shots of both world wars – may enshrine the guns of Fort Nepean at the centre of world history on an intellectual level but the battle to recognise and preserve the historic site has been long and arduous. It’s hoped the 100 year anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War will help galvanise recognition of the importance Fort Nepean and boost efforts to preserve and enhance one of the peninsula’s most important and iconic historical sites. On the morning of the day the First World War broke out on 5 August 1914, there was only one German ship in Melbourne: the 6560 ton steamer Pfalz, a merchant vessel operated by German shipping company Norddeutscher Lloyd. In the hours leading up to the declaration of war between Great Britain and Germany, staff from the German consulate in Melbourne were in a desperate race to get aboard the Pfalz to escape to their homeland

and avoid impending arrest. The cargo-laden steamer left Victoria Dock mid-morning ahead of schedule with its expanded passenger list of German VIPs intent on escaping through the heads and to the freedom of the open sea before the

now inevitable declaration of war. Also on board was Australian Captain Robinson, an employee of the pilot service, whose duty was to safely guide the soon-to-be enemy vessel out of Australian waters. But the ship would make it

through the heads. Australian authorities were being updated minute by minute of the rapidly unfolding events in Europe and were well aware of the movements of the Pfalz and its high-value “cargo”. It was a race against time and tide

OUR ANZACS for the Pfalz, but history was still on its side when the vessel was halted at Portsea by the SS Alvina. With no legal authority to detain the vessel in lieu of advice of the outbreak of war, the Pfalz was permitted to resume its journey. But just minutes later, at 11am local time, a message was received by the Australian Naval Board from the British Admiralty that war had now officially been declared. The order came to the Fort Nepean gunnery crew to “stop or sink” the Pfalz. Signals were hoisted at Point Nepean calling on the ship to stop. The Pfalz did not comply. A shot was fired across the ship’s bow from a 6 inch Mk VII naval gun mounted at Fort Nepean. When that first shot was fired, Captain Robinson reportedly had some difficulty convincing the captain of the Pfalz that the next shot would be directed at the ship. But Robinson won the day and the captain and crew of the Pfalz – no doubt in close consultation with their consular superiors - were convinced to comply. The vessel was brought back to Portsea, where both ship and crew were placed under arrest. They would be recorded as the first German prisoners of the First World War. A member of the Fort Nepean gun crew wrote of the incident: “The tide was flowing very fast when we had the word to fire and I pressed the electrical trigger and saw the shot land with a splash in the water; the splash went right up over the bridge of the ship ... The last order we had was ‘stop her or sink her’.” As irony would have it, the com-

mandeered Pfalz was quickly refitted and renamed, becoming the HMAS Boorara, which would soon carry Australian troops to Egypt and the Dardanelles in 1915 as part of the Anzac Day landing. The requisitioned former German merchant vessel became part of the 2nd Australian convoy to the mideast, with subsequent duties including the transportation of Axis-allied Turkish prisoners of war. Her dramatic run-in with the guns of Fort Nepean was but a fore taste

of numerous war-time adventures and misadventures. While serving in the Aegean Sea in July 1915, the ship collided with the French Navy cruiser Kléber and was beached at Moudros before being taken to Naples to be repaired. The ship was torpedoed twice in the English Channel in 1918 but was repaired on both occasions before serving perhaps its most useful role in transporting repatriated Australian troops home from England. Twenty-five years later, the guns

of Fort Nepean would again thrust themselves onto the world stage, firing Britain and the Commonwealth’s first “angry” shot of the Second World War. It was the only other time Victoria’s naval defences had ever been deployed in hostile action, though this time the target turned out to be “friendly”. The date was 4 September 1939, and the Second World War had been declared only hours earlier. Alas, this time, there was no flee-

ing enemy to confront. The mistaken enemy turned out to be the Australian freighter SS Woniora, a cargo vessel en-route to Tasmania, which had failed to respond to a recognition signal as it neared the mouth of Port Phillip Bay. A warning shot was fired from the very same pair of 6 inch Mk VII naval guns at Fort Nepean. The ship promptly identified itself. Nonethe-less, history records the incident as the first British shot fired in the conflict.

OUR ANZACS

Age no barrier to Kokoda return By Michelle Kapnoullas St John of God Frankston Hospital IN 1941, Alan Moore was only 20 years old – a newly promoted Lieutenant in the 39th Battalion – when he was sent to Port Moresby to defend the airstrip and halt any Southward Japanese advance. There were approximately 1000 Australians against 3000 Japanese. Alan attended Melbourne Grammar School and during his time there, attended four years of cadet school, where he became a cadet lieutenant. It was because of his cadet knowledge that he was promoted to lieutenant at such a young (the youngest officer to serve in his battalion). His platoon of 33 (18-19 year olds) along with the rest of the battalion sailed the Aquitania from Sydney to Port Moresby.

Alan travelled in the honeymoon suite – however it was with 14 other young lieutenants. The convoy of ships took 4.5 days to arrive at their destination. As the battalion prepared to be taken to the campsite, they were informed their supplies were at the bottom of the cargo and would therefore take several days to unload. So they marched seven miles in the scorching heat to Seven Mile Drome where the sargeant pointed to a place on the side of the hill and told them to set up camp – without any of the following: tents, mosquito nets, building equipment, medications or decent food. During the first week, without proper supplies and equipment, many of the men suffered from dysentery and malaria. Alan was unfortunate to suffer from dysentery him-

self, but did not get malaria. Finally their supplies arrived. The men spent many hours unloading ships and preparing defences – unfortunately when the new senior officers arrived, they informed them they were setting up the defences in the wrong place and had to start again. The Japanese landed in Rabaul – New Britain and set up airfields and a naval base. During the day and night they continually bombed the area where Alan’s Battalion was based. Alan said they would wait for the bombers to leave and would then jump out of the holes they were hiding in the shoot, using First World War Lewis Guns (machine guns) at the Zero strafing planes that would follow the bomber planes. They even managed to shoot a few down. After Kokoda, the Japanese established themselves in the northern beaches of Papua New Guinea. Alan recalls this being the worst part of the war for him. The Japanese had positioned themselves in the beach and the Australians had to walk through swamp land to get to them (more soldiers died from disease and

dysentery than from combat). Alan was evacuated when he became very ill. He has no recollection of being transferred to the Australian General hospital in Port Moresby. Alan spent a total of three years in Papua New Guinea (two campaigns). He was transferred to another unit when he got back to Australia as the 39th Battalion was disbanded due to casualties. Twelve months after the war, both of Alan’s parents passed away. He stayed in the family home in Camberwell on his own, until he met the love of his life – Joan. They married three months after meeting each other, had two daughters, moved to Mount Eliza in 1955 to enrol their daughters in Toorak College and were married for 51 glorious years. They have five grandchildren ranging in age from 30 – 18. Sadly Joan passed away 12 years ago. Over the years, Alan has been an active member in school committees and is one of the two past two-year members of the Canadian Bay Club. Alan keeps active, walking half a kilometer every day into Mount

Eliza Village to have coffee with friends. Two weeks ago, Alan came down with a severe gastric attack and became quite ill. He arrived at St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital as an inpatient, to help him return to maximum strength to prepare for his trip back to Kokada in August this year. He is participating in physiotherapy sessions to improve his balance and coordination and improve his walking endurance. Alan will be joined by his two daughters in Kokada for Kokada Day on 8 August. His granddaughter will also meet them there after walking the Kokoda trail. “I never thought I would get another opportunity to go back to Kokoda, but I’m so happy I am,” Alan said. Alan is extremely happy with St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital and said “I am staggered at the high quality of the equipment here. I couldn’t speak more highly of the staff, they are well selected. The food is the level of a top class restaurant and we are terribly lucky to have this establishment in our area.”

The mystery of a Frankston recruit

the Bauer Brief April 2014 BELVEDERE Park Primary School in Seaford was the happy recipient of $540,000 in funding for a muchneeded facelift this month. The school has more than 300 students and the funding will allow the school to upgrade its learning and administration areas and other general improvements. I am working hard to deliver to other schools in my electorate. I URGE breast cancer patients and survivors, their partners, friends and supporters take part in Breast Cancer Network Australia’s 2014 Field of Women event at the MCG on May 10. The event calls for 15,000 people to stand on the MCG in the shape of the Pink Lady, to represent the number of women and men who will be told they have breast cancer in 2014. All money raised goes to Breast Cancer Network Australia. To find out more go to http://www.bcna.org.au/events/field-women FANTASTIC news for commuters this month. From January 1, 2015, Zone 1 fares will apply across the entire metropolitan network and there will be free tram travel in Melbourne’s CBD and Docklands. This means that a commuter who pays for a Zone 1 and 2 ticket each day will save about $1200 a year, or if using an annual myki pass, more than $750. AND the good news continued with the announcement that the Coalition Government has committed to building a long-overdue Melbourne Airport Rail Link from Southern Cross station to Tullamarine Airport, The link will provide a frequent and reliable train service between the airport and the CBD, with services departing every 10 minutes during the day. About 30 million passengers pass through the airport each year.

Gallipoli charge: The front lines where William was injured in 1915. Clearing station: A hospital in Etaples much like the one William would have been admitted to.

MORE than 6,600 complaints about boundary fences were made to the Dispute Settlement Centre of Victoria in 2012-13 and this month the Government passed new laws to simplify rules and procedures pertaining to erecting a boundary fence. The new rules are clearer and provide clear guidelines neighbours can follow when negotiating the type and location of the dividing fence and which will also make it easier to settle fencing disputes. By Peter McCullough MY brief was to provide a short biography on a First World War Anzac who enlisted in Frankston. This didn’t seem too difficult an assignment: I looked up “Mapping Our Anzacs” on the internet and discovered that 33 people enlisted in Frankston between 1914 and 1918. The only name that rang a bell was Lewis Cole, one of the three Cole brothers from Tyabb who went overseas, but I did a feature article on them in the 2012 Anzac Day special edition. That left 32 to choose from. One of those was William Victor Murray Grainger. With three given names he sounded interesting. Besides, I wondered, could he be related to the composer, Percy Grainger? I brought up his details on the computer and it wasn’t long before I appreciated how difficult it can be for an historian to track some of the original participants in the AIF. As can be seen, the official papers reveal that, during the course of the war, Private Grainger changed his details to such an extent that he caused a heated dispute to break out between the adjutant at the camp and the records office. The original papers show that this 21-yearold labourer, who was born in London, en-

listed on 17 September 1914 (only days after war was declared) and provided the following information: 1. NAME: William Victor Murray Ireland 2. NEXT OF KIN: Elizabeth Ireland, 29 Quadrant Grove, Maitland Park, London. 3. RELIGION: R.C. So what changed in the following few years? 1. In early 1916, at the request of the soldier, his name on the payroll was changed by the adjutant at the Australian Base Camp at Weymouth from Ireland to Grainger. The Adjutant did not follow proper procedures and received a “blister” from the OIC records who pointed out that his actions “contravened paragraph 1901 of the King’s Regulations”. Subsequently, on 27 March 1916, Private Ireland submitted a statutory declaration indicating that he was now Private Grainger. No reason was given for the name change. 2. At some point, the soldier’s “next of kin” was changed to Mrs M Grainger of 16 Oakford Rd, Suffolk Park, Highgate, London. Presumably this change was made following the submission of a marriage certificate dated 6 November 1915 concerning the marriage of William Victor Murray Grainger (aged 21) of 29 Quadrant Grove, to Mabel Laura Holt (21) of 72 Wellesley Rd. The marriage took place while the soldier was convalescing in Lon-

don following a severe bout of influenza. He was already using the name “Grainger” and his given address was 29 Quadrant Grove, which was the same address as his original “next of kin” (Elizabeth Ireland). One wonders whether he knew Mabel before he came out to Australia, or was this a whirlwind wartime romance? 3. Private Grainger’s religious denomination was changed from Roman Catholic to Church of England. Perhaps this was a consequence of his marriage to Mabel? While all of these changes were keeping the OIC records on their (no doubt highly polished) toes, Private Ireland/Grainger had not been idle. He embarked from Australia as a member of the 6th Battalion on 2 December 1914, returning on 2 December 1918. The years in between were spent at Gallipoli where he suffered a rifle wound to the chest (8 May 1915) and then severe influenza (1 September 1915) necessitating his despatch to England to convalesce (and marry). On 28 May 1916 he rejoined his regiment in France at Etaples and completed his war experience in hospital as a result of being gassed and wounded (31 August 1918). One can’t help but wonder whether Private Grainger’s life as a civilian was as colourful as the years he spent in uniform.

OUR ANZACS

From peaceful Mornington to the battles of France By Cameron McCullough LESLIE Coxhell was a member of one of Mornington’s true pioneering families. His grandfather arrived in the very early days of Mornington and, having fathered eight children and 43 grandchildren, by the time Leslie arrived the Coxhell name was well established in the area. While life was by no means easy for people early last century, the little snippets of Leslie’s life growing up seem filled with sporting endeavours, religious practice and scholarly achievement. The earliest mention of Leslie in the local newspaper is in October 1907 when the members of the St. Peter’s Gymnastic Club gave a social in the Mechanics’ Hall, As it was the end of the season for 1907, presentations were given to those members who had distinguished themselves most during the past year. In the juniors, Leslie Coxhell came third and was presented with a carved picture frame. It was recorded that “After refreshments Mr Schleebs put some very pretty records on his phonograph, which he had kindly lent for the occasion. After having sung Auld Lang Syne and the national anthem, a few tireless beings joined in a dance,

Off to war: Leslie Coxhell in 1916.

Younger brother: John Eric Coxhell at the time of his enlistment.

OUR ANZACS which concluded a very pleasant evening”. A newspaper article from 1908 about the celebrating of the St Peter’s Sunday School anniversary talks about a large number attending with special hymns being sung by the children and “a most interesting and appropriate address” was given by W. Brett, Esquire. On the following Monday evening “the children and their friends attended in the school hall, when a programme was rendered by the scholars, after which the prizes were presented”. One of the recipients was Leslie Coxhell. On 1 December 1909 Leslie’s name comes up again, this time on the occasion of a Sunday School Picnic held at “Sunnyside”. The prize winners for the year were announced and Leslie was first in line for the boys. At the end of 1910, Leslie was one of six students from Mornington State school who went up for their Merit Certificates. Five “passed creditably” including Leslie, an achievement which “reflects great credit on their head teacher”. On 19 October 1912 the local newspaper reported “It is gratifying to learn that Master Leslie Coxhell (15 years of age)... of Mornington, was successful in passing the examination for the position of an assistant at the Mornington State Savings Bank and will take up his duties on Monday next. It may be mentioned that Master Coxhell was educated at the Mornington State School under Mr Ferber (the head teacher) and obtained his Standard Certificate at 11 and his Merit at 12 years of age. He was also successful in passing two examinations in the Postal Department, which reflects great credit on the school.” Leslie Coxhell was just 19 years old when he enlisted on 12 July 1915. He had in his possession a letter that read as follows: “I the undersigned declare that my son Leslie Coxhell born in the year 18th March 1896 is given my full permission to go to war.” The letter is signed by his parents, Henry and Eleanor Coxhell. A mere boy, he had been working as a railway porter at the time of his enlistment. It was noted on the form that he was of a sallow completion with grey eyes. Leslie then went through training before departing Australia on transport ship Ceramic on 23 November 1915.

OUR ANZACS

Above: A captured German trench in Posieres, near where Leslie died, shows the utter destruction troops would have experienced.

Just three days before leaving Australia, Leslie’s younger brother, John Eric Coxhell, signed up for service aged just 18. Leslie’s war records state that he was transported to Tel-el-Kebir in Egypt, 110 kilometres north-north-east of Cairo and 75 kilometres south of Port Said on the edge of the Egyptian desert. It was a training centre for the First Australian Imperial Force reinforcements and No 2 Australian Stationary Hospital, It was notable for its size with at some stage about 40,000 Australians camped in a small tent city six miles in length. On 6 March 1916, he was taken on strength into the 46th Battalion, but by 16 April he had been hospitalised. He was discharged from hospital on 26 April and rejoined his unit in Serapeum. Serapeum was a three day March from Tel-el-Kebir and was part of the Suez Canal defence. On 2 June 1916 he boarded the transport ship Kinfauns Castle in Alexandria and disembarked in Marseilles on 8 June. Meanwhile, Leslie’s mother Eleanor was writing to the war office to try and find out why letters to her son had not been received. Younger son John, who was still in Egypt, had received letters, but Leslie had not. She wrote on 10 July 1916 “Could you find out if the letters are lying in Egypt and if so could they be sent on as they say a letter from home could mean so much to them”. Leslie would have likely treasured word from home as the Western Front must have been a terrible shock to him. He is noted to have been hospitalised on 23 July with cardiac weakness. This began a series of hospitalisations over the next two weeks. On 9 August he rejoined his unit from hospital, only to be killed in action later the same day.

Serving the community since 1947

In 1947 Les and Marge Hunter together with Mr Fred Burke decided to open a tyre service on the corner of Beach and Lewis Street, Frankston where it still stands after 66 years. In an old tin shed a retreading factory was born with Les at the helm and Marge working tirelessly ensuring the bills were paid. As the face of tyres was changing the retreading factory closed, petrol bowsers were introduced and tyre sales became the main source of revenue. Les and Marge continued to work with a clear vision of having a successful business providing for their three little boys. In 1971 one of those little boys Geoffrey commenced working full time with his parents in the business and over the next 42 years blessed with his parents work ethic he was in integral part of the business. In 1977 there was a name change to Frankston Tyrepower. In 1980 Geoff took on the day to day running of the business he knew that progress was invertible. The business continued to grow going from strength to strength. In 1992 new premises were built, Marge and Les both saw

their dreams come to fruition but sadly Marge passed away in ‘92 followed by Les in ‘93. Geoff and his wife Jill were keen to maintain petrol sales and driveaway service but with mounting pressure from oil companies slowly independents were squeezed out of the market. Tyres and mechanical became the main focus of the business. Integrity, honesty and service has always been Geoffs mantra. Geoff has recently semi retired. Tyrepower is now managed by Chris Smith supported by Barry Copper, both long term employees, a great staff and of course Beth Hunter, Geoff’s and Jill’s daughter, overseeing the financials, making sure the bills are paid as her grandma did many years before her. Frankston Tyrepower continues to provide their customers, some of whom are fourth generation. Much has changed over the years in and around Tyrepower but one thing has always remained the same, great service, honesty, integrity and most of all competitive pricing. With hope this will continue over the next 66 years.

OUR ANZACS Leslie was buried midway between Posieres and Martinpuich, 4.5 miles from Albert. His personal effects were recovered and recorded as “Letters, an Religious booklets (3)”. The effects were returned to the family in July 1917. Another package was to come in February 1918 that contained his identity disc. War records show that Eleanor Coxhell was granted a war pension in November 1916, but she died in January 1918. In September 1920, Henry Coxhell received the Star medal and in April 1924, the British War Medal for Leslie’s service. A letter dated 12 December 1924 informed Henry of the final resting place of his son. Posieres British Cemetery, plot 4, row n, grave 3. Things did not end as terribly for Leslie’s brother John. After being wounded in action in July 1916 with a gunshot to the chest, he was sent to England for treatment only to be returned to Australia in November 1916. He was discharged as medically unfit, but re-enlisted in October 1917. A new notation was made on his second enlistment form under “distinctive marks”, simply stating GSW on chest. He remained in Australia for his second stint and was discharged in July 1918. John Eric Coxhell featured in local newspapers over the following decade as a handy sportsman. He died in 1969. Although Leslie’s mother died in 1918, his father lived until he was 80, dying in 1942.

OUR ANZACS The Coxhell pioneers, Thomas and Theresa LESLIE Coxhell’s granparents were Thomas and Theresa Coxhell. Thomas Coxhell was an early pioneer, who was born in Middlesex, England in 1825. He married Theresa Anne Tynan on 17 September 1857 at St. Francis Church, Melbourne. Theresa was born in Dublin Ireland in 1831, and arrived in Port Phillip aboard the “Western Bride” in 1855. Her passage had been paid for by Mr. Balcombe of The Briars, where she had been contracted to work for one year as a Ladies’ maid for a yearly wage of twenty pounds. Thomas’ first job in this area was as a bricklayer at The Briars. In 1862 he purchased land at Osborne over-

looking The Briars and Balcombe Creek, and built a house where he and Theresa reared their eight children. Thomas also worked as a brickmaker (second from right in the photo), using the waterholes on surrounding farms to make bricks to construct buildings for the owners. When he retired he and Theresa moved to Alfred Street, Mornington where he died in 1905, aged 80. He was survived by his eight children, 43 grandchildren, and eight great grandchildren. His wife Theresa died two years later, aged 76.

Remembering the wounded

By Peter McCullough ANYONE with even a cursory knowledge of Australia’s involvement in World War One will be able to inform you that the death toll was about 62,000 (the precise figure was 61,966). Less well-known is that the “gassed and wounded” totalled 156,000, and that the subsequent death toll in the decade following the end of hostilities was 60,000, according to the Australian War Memorial website. It is important to realize that the “wounded” did not include soldiers who suffered what in those times was referred to as “shell shock.” When assessing returned soldiers for a war disability pension, many doctors rejected psychological explanations of war’s impact (what we now call post-traumatic stress disorder) and were suspicious about malingering. Accordingly, many men returned to Australia physically intact but mentally destroyed and found great difficulty in settling back into civilian life; these men lived for the rest of their lives with the ghosts of Gallipoli or the Western Front. The death toll of 60,000 in the decade after 1918 would surely have been much greater if these other “wounded” had also been counted. At the time of the Great War, Australia’s population was less than 4.5 million while the number of men who enlisted was 416,809. With such a large percentage of men of eligible age being involved, it was rare to find a family that was not touched in some way. Local historian and author Leila Shaw is very familiar with the consequences of the conflict: both her father (Sapper Thomas William Brunning) and her father-in-law (Trooper William Shaw) were invalided home. When both these young men enlisted, the

FEATURE PROPERTY

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

First class country WITH a list of attributes perhaps more suited to inner-city townhouses, this stylish rural property is literally a breath of fresh country air with a modern and sophisticated finish. Set on about 3.4 hectares (8.5 acres) of relatively flat pasture land and light bush, the home has a knockout floor plan highlighted by spectacular dimensions that accentuate the sense of space, and an emphasis on indoor and outdoor entertaining. A formal sitting room featuring a cosy gas fireplace is a tranquil space for quiet contemplation away from the upstairs rumpus room which will be great for children’s activities and console games. Flanked by glass allowing the natural light to spill throughout, is a family zone incorporating a living and dining space which effortlessly flows through a series of sliding doors out to a generous deck and undercover dining area. A stylish kitchen has granite benchtops with an island bench, quality appliances and a walk-in pantry. A ground-floor bedroom and bathroom - also with granite benchtops - complements four more bedrooms found on the top floor. The impressive master bedroom has a walk-in robe, ensuite with spa bath and opens to a private balcony with a view over the property. Improvements to the property consist of a fully serviced, 195 square metre machinery shed. This stunning location, tucked amongst the gum trees, is tailor-made to create your own unique lifestyle. There is ample room to add a pool or tennis court (STCA) and the land will suit some small-scale agriculture, such as an orchard, or you could run some horses.

war had been in progress for two years. The Gallipoli campaign had come and gone. One wonders what prompted them to join up when they did. Horrific casualty lists were commonplace, and by this time no one went off expecting a picnic. Fortunately both men were able to settle back into the local community and lead happy and successful lives as nurserymen/orchardists. I am indebted to Mrs. Shaw for the information and photographs contained in this article. Sapper Thomas William Brunning (No. 16729) BILL Brunning, as he was more commonly known, was born in Somerville in 1895, one of three sons of John and Maria Brun-

ning. He was a descendant of one of the earlier families which came to Somerville as nurserymen and orchardists, settling in the area in 1866. Bill subsequently became a partner in the nursery business that exists today under the name of John Brunning and Sons “Somerville Nurseries.” At the age of 22 years and eight months, Bill Brunning enlisted on 29 September 1916 and, after initial training, he embarked on the Orontes on 23 December, disembarking at Plymouth on 17 February, 1917. His training in England was interrupted several times by illness, requiring hospitalization. It was not until 8 September 1917 that Sapper Brunning joined the 1st Signal Company at Abbeville in

France. However his stay at the front was short-lived as he was admitted to hospital on 20th October and invalided back to England a month later with “jaundice.” His health problems appear to have kept him in England for the rest of the war and he departed for Australia on the Argyleshire on 9 December, 1918. It was a sad home-coming for Sapper Brunning for, while he was at sea, his mother Maria, aged 52, and his sister Florence, aged 26 and married two months, died as victims of the Spanish influenza pandemic. In fact the Spanish flu followed the troops home and it has been estimated that in 1918 it alone killed another 12,000 troops. Bill Brunning returned to Somerville which by this time had become one of the

largest fruit growing areas in Australia. Brunnings nursery, owned and managed by Bill and one of his brothers, George, was reputedly the biggest in Australia: it exported fruit and fruit trees to all parts of Australia and overseas to England, parts of Europe, Argentina, New Zealand, India, Burma, Ceylon (Sri Lanka), Mauritius and parts of Africa. During his years overseas Bill corresponded with a local girl, Beatrice Fraser, and they married in 1920. Their family consisted of twin girlsBeatrice and Lilian (who lived for three days), Warwick(who lived for 14 months), and Leila. Beatrice married Keith Dawson and Leila married Gaza Shaw. As well as his involvement in Brunnings Nurseries, Bill Brunning

became very active in public affairs. As you might expect, these included the Somerville Fruitgrowers’ Horticultural and Agricultural Show, of which he was both President (192834) and Secretary (1940-62), and the Somerville Fruit Growers Association. Between 1942 and 1964 Bill Brunning was a member of the Hastings-Somerville RSL, serving a term as President. During the 1940’s he was President of the Somerville Soldiers’ Welfare Committee and in a generous gesture he paid for the cool store space for all returned orchardist servicemen for the first year after their return from overseas. Bill Brunning was a director of the Tyabb Cool Store. In 1949 Bill Brunning donated the

This property was sold in 2012 by the Mornington Peninsula Shire to Aldi for a supermarket carpark; a decision which still rankles with many local residents. Bill Brunning’s wife, Beatrice, died in 1939 and a second marriage produced a daughter, Helyn.Bill Brunning died in 1964. Trooper William Shaw (No. 1565) Will Shaw was born in Maffra, Victoria, in 1890, the son of John and Frances Shaw. He enlisted on 18 October, 1916 aged 26 and gave his occupation as farm labourer of Willesden Road, Oakleigh. His father was listed as next-of-kin at the same address, but at some point over the next two years this was amended to “Tyabb P.O.”. On 15 December, 1916 Trooper William Shaw of the Camel Corps November 1916 Reinforcements embarked on the Vestalia. A little over a month later they disembarked at Suez where, following time with the 1st and 4th Light Horse Training Regiments, Will Shaw was taken on strength with the 4th Light Horse.

OUR ANZACS dated 23 March, 1917 stated: “I am still going strong and feel splendid. Don’t address Camel Corps any more; its cut out...The new Brigade went out the other day, and we are likely to follow any time now.” On the reverse was a photograph of Will and his two mates on camels with the Sphinx and a pyramid in the background. A second letter stated: “...been for a trip to Cairo and had a rattling good time, out at the Pyramids and all over the place...” A letter to his brother, Rod, dated 18 April stated : “...at the front now, we arrived here at 2am Sunday-some big bombarding going on over the last couple of days-aeroplanes are pretty active...I don’t feel a bit afraid, Rod. I think I will get through alright-don’t forget the 4th Light Horse.” William’s next letter, dated 28 July, 1917 stated: “...We got orders to saddle up and put all our equipment on this morning, horse feed and all. We thought we were off out for a big fight, but it was only a false alarm...lined up ready to move, the General came along and in-

spected us..he said we mustn’t go out short of anything, for it will be a five days severe battle they reckon. I hope I have the luck to pull through alright...” Trooper Shaw suffered a setback in October when he was hospitalized with septic sores in the groin. On 1 November he was transferred to the Convalescent Depot and in a letter to family the following day he was quite optimistic about the future. He stated : “I didn’t like leaving the front to come here , but I couldn’t ride for the septic on my thigh-an awful lot of men got them, nearly every scratch used to turn septic. I think it’s too much bully beef and not enough vegetables.” Unfortunately the problem persisted, and Trooper Shaw was moved to various hospitals, not rejoining the 4th Light Horse until 11 January, 1918. In his letter of 2 November, 1917 Will Shaw sent Christmas wishes to his family and expressed the hope that he would be with them again for the following Christmas. He did get back to Australia before the next Christmas, as

he had hoped, but it could easily have proved otherwise. Overnight on the 30 April/1 May, 1918 Australians and Turks opposed each other near the River Jordan, west of Es Salt, poised for battle. In Volume VII of “The Official History of Australia in the War of 1914-1918” (The Australian Imperial Force in Sinai and Palestine) historian H.S.Gullett wrote : “The situation was uncomfortable. Grant had only about 800 rifles available for the firing line.” Grant and two other senior officers were descending the hillside behind brigade headquarters, after a 7am reconnaissance, when”... rifle and machine-gun fire burst suddenly from the whole front, and in a few minutes it was clear that the Turks were attacking in great strength...Wave after wave of infantry in open order, and very boldly led, debouched from the mud-hills and struck straight across the plain... To the north the 4th regiment was being forced further into the hills, and by 8.30 o’clock the enemy, advancing down the plain, were close to the Es Salt track.” By this time Trooper William Shaw lay wounded on the battlefield. He was delivering a message to the Australian Mounted Divisional Head Quarters in Es Salt when his right knee was shattered by a gunshot. This happened at about 8 am. on the morning of 1 May 1918, but Will Shaw lay out there unattended for several days before he was brought in. By this time the wound was crawling with maggots, but they were feeding on the infection and this saved him from blood poisoning. Trooper Shaw was transferred from a Casualty Clearing Station to the 47th Stationary Hospital on 12 May, 1918. Service records show that the next-of-kin were regularly advised of William’s condition and it would have been a worrying few months for the Shaw family back home: on 20 May his condition was reported as “serious”; two days later he was “dangerously ill.” In a tent hospital in Gaza several attempts were made to control the gangrene and one evening he

overheard the doctor telling a nurse “This one will not survive the night.” William survivedand vowed to call his first son “Gaza” in appreciation of his life! On 30 May the leg was amputated above the knee, and it was three more weeks before William was off the “dangerously ill” list. On 3 August, 1918 Trooper William Shaw embarked on the Karoola for Australia. He disembarked on 4 September and was discharged from the A.I.F. in Melbourne on 20 December, 1918-just in time for Christmas as he had hoped! When he was discharged, Will Shaw lived with his parents on the Mornington-Tyabb Road in Moorooduc. As well as the usual problems faced by soldiers returning from war, he had to come to terms with the loss of a limb. It was not long before he made the acquaintance of Alice Lilian Reeves, the daughter of William and Elizabeth Reeves who lived nearby. On 20 August 1921 they married and settled at “Karoola” on the Mornington-Tyabb Road, Tyabb: Will could not forget the ship that brought him home! Despite his artificial leg, Will Shaw managed ably on his 20 acres, and became a very successful orchardist, largely working the property alone. Between 1922 and 1939 Will and Alice had five children: Dorothy, William John Gaza, Neville, Linda and Malcolm. The first son was given the name of his father, his grandfather, and an eternal reminder of the desert conflict. Universally known as “Gaza”, he married Leila Brunning and was a local builder; amongst many others he built the home that William and Alice retired to in Tyabb in 1952. Daughter Linda married a local orchardist, Bill Lillywhite, and she, too, has lived locally all her life. Two of the Shaw family were in the forces during the Second world Was, including Gaza who served in New Guinea and Bougainville with the 10th Field Company of the Royal Australian Engineers. Although he suffered from phantom pains all his life, Will Shaw was never heard to

The next generation: Gaza pictured his his father Will, mother Alice and little brother Malcolm as he prepared to leave for New Guinea in 1942.


OUR ANZACS complain. With a happy disposition, he worked hard on the farm chores like a man with both legs. He also participated enthusiastically in community matters and, at various times, held the positions of Secretary of the Tyabb Primary School Committee, the Tyabb Scout Committee, and the Tyabb Recreation Reserve. He was a Trustee of that Reserve and also of the Tyabb Methodist Church. Will was a long-time member of the HastingsSomerville R.S.L. and he donated to many charities including the Tyabb Hall which was rebuilt by his son, Gaza.

William Shaw died in 1970 and his wife Alice in 1975. ď Ž Footnote: Examination of the detailed army records

of a number of original ANZACs reveals one interesting point: although they lacked nothing in courage or enthusiasm, they were somewhat lacking in height. The two soldiers in this story, both country boys used to hard manual work, are typical: Sapper Brunning was 5 feet 5 3/4 inches (167 cm.) and Trooper Shaw was 5 feet 6 ½inches (169 cm.) A comprehensive history of the Brunning family will appear in the Western Port News later this year.

Later in life: Will and Alice in their later years. Will died in 1970 and Alice died in 1975. George says thanks: The certificate of appreciation awarded to William Shaw for his sacrifice.

OUR ANZACS Skeletons in the cupboard WILL Shaw was born in Maffra, one of eight children. His father, John Shaw, was born in Harris, Scotland, in 1855, came to Australia with his parents (John and Margaret) in 1856, and died in Tyabb in 1923. In 1877 he married Frances Ann Robertson in Maffra. She was the daughter of Thomas and Grace Robertson (nee Scoullar) and was born in Tasmania in 1857. Many years after her death in Tyabb in 1942, research by family members found that the parents of Frances Ann Shaw (nee Scoullar) had arrived in Australia as convicts and had led fascinating lives. Whether Frances was aware of any of this is unknown. Her father, Thomas C. Robertson, was born in the East Indies (Indonesia) circa 1814 but subsequently lived in Edinburgh. Aged 15 and homeless, he stole a penknife and 15 shillings. For that he was sentenced in 1831 to 14 years imprisonment in Van Diemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Land (Tasmania). In Australia he was given hard labour in a road party for using bad language and disobeying his mas-

terâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s orders, and spent three months on the Grass Tree Hill chain gang. In 1839 he was fined 5 shillings for drunkenness and later spent three days on the treadwheel for the same offence. Six years later, while on ticket-of-leave, Robertson stole four pairs of trousers and was sent to Port Arthur to serve an additional seven years. While Robertson was serving his sentence, 24 year old mother of four, Grace Scoullar, was standing trial in Kilmarnock, Scotland, in 1847 for stealing blankets and a patched bed cover. Sentenced to seven years in Tasmania, it is believed that she never saw her children again. In 1851 she met Robertson and they applied for and were granted permission to marry, but authorities deferred their marriage for six months because of her prior conviction for insolence. They married in Hamilton, Tasmania, later that year. After serving their sentences the couple moved to Maffra where they raised five children, including Frances. Thomas and Grace both died in Maffra: Thomas in 1891 and Grace three years later.

OUR ANZACS

A look at the Nazi mystique BOOK REVIEW By Peter McCullough ABOUT 30 years ago, British publisher Paul Hamlyn visited Australia and was interviewed on television. He related the story of a budding writer, fresh from a course at the local polytechnic, who obtained an appointment with Hamlyn and enquired “I want to write a best-seller: can you suggest a topic?” The publisher explained that bestsellers were rarely novels but topics of general interest. In the case of his company, the best sellers were books on Hitler, cats and golf – in that order. Twelve months later, the young writer was back. He pushed his manuscript across the desk and Hamlyn glanced at the title: I Played Golf with Hitler’s Cat. He was not impressed. Although Hamlyn’s story may have been apocryphal, the fact remains that books on Hitler and the Nazi era are still appearing frequently on the best-seller lists. The hysteria that swept Germany in the 1930s and 1940s still mystifies us today, just as it mystified our parents and grandparents in those times. How did a man who was an obscure failure until his thirties become the most powerful dictator of his day? When Hitler became chancellor in 1933, six million Germans were unemployed. Within three years, there was full employment. To many Germans, he was a miracle worker. Yet his sinister attributes were always present: his brutal views on race; his thirst for war; and his obsession with expanding Germany’s borders. His anti-semitism would ultimately lead to his downfall, as he divided his resources between the war and the persecution of the Jews. As the persecution intensified, the Jewish citizens, who were invariably loyal Germans and many of whom had fought in the First World War, wondered where it would end. In Two Brothers (see below), one of the main characters reflects on the

situation that was puzzling the rest of the world: “...Paulus, like every half-civilized person in Germany, Jew or Gentile, had hoped that somehow, one day, a line would be drawn. That the steady erosion of all humanity towards the ‘race enemies’ would reach its nadir. Deprived of rights, property, dignity, security. Yes. But murder? Mass murder? Surely not. That couldn’t be. Nobody. Nobody would do that. Least of all the sons of Bach, Beethoven, Goethe, Schiller, Mozart, Bismark, Gutenberg and Luther. Murder all the Jews? ALL of them? It couldn’t happen And yet...” If you, too, are fascinated by the Nazi era, there are three recent novels that you might care to choose from for some reading over the next month or so. Coincidentally, all three novelists have been motivated to write by an actual event.

Alone In Berlin

By Hans Fallada SET in Berlin in 1940, a city paralysed by fear, the story tells of one man who refuses to be scared. Otto Quangel, an ordinary German who

is the foreman in a furniture factory and who lives with his wife (Anna) in a shabby apartment block, tries to stay out of trouble under the Nazi rule. But when he discovers that their only son has been killed fighting at the front he is shocked into an extraordinary act of resistance and starts to drop anonymous postcards attacking Hitler across the city. If caught he will be executed. Soon his silent campaign comes to the attention of ambitious Gestapo inspector Escherich, and a murderous game of cat and mouse begins. The end result is inevitable. Fallada’s novel, evoking the horror of life in Germany in the war years, was first published in Germany in 1947. However it is “new” to us as it was not translated and published in English until 2009. According to the foreward in the first German edition, the novel follows “in its broad lines” the Gestapo files on the illegal activities of an actual Berlin working class couple, Otto and Elise Hampel. Originally Nazi supporters, on the death of their son in France in 1940 they began to deposit postcards and some 200 written leaflets in post-boxes and stairwells around their home district. They were betrayed, arrest-

ed, sentenced to death by the People’s Court, and executed.

All That I Am

By Anna Funder WHEN 18-year-old Ruth Becker visits her cousin, Dora, in Munich in 1923 she meets the love of her life, the dashing young journalist, Hans Wesemann, and eagerly joins in the heady political activities of the militant left in Germany. Ten years later Ruth and Hans are married and living in Weimar Berlin when Hitler is elected Chancellor of Germany. Together with Dora and her lover, Ernst Toller, the celebrated Jewish poet/playwright and self-doubting revolutionary, the four become hunted outlaws overnight and are forced to flee to London. Inspired by Dora, the friends risk betrayal and deceit as they dedicate themselves to a dangerous mission: to inform the British government of the very real Nazi threat to which it remains wilfully blind. Funder portrays what dangerous work this was, particularly given that the Gestapo was active in London, something the establishment would not believe at the time. This part of the novel is based on a real-life mystery: in 1933 the bodies

of two German emigres were found in a Bloomsbury bedroom-locked from the inside-in an apparent suicide pact. In the novel the inquest seems a sham, not so much because the Crown is colluding in some high-level cover-up, but because the assertions of the dead women’s friends seem impossible nonsense. “All That I Am” is the heartbreaking story of these extraordinary people who discover that England is not the safe haven they think it is, and a single chilling act of betrayal tears them apart. Some 70 years after the events Ruth Wesemann is an elderly German woman living out her days in Sydney, making an uneasy peace with the ghosts of the past, and a part of history that has all but been forgotten. One morning in 2001 she receives in the mail a tattered old notebook addressed to her by Ernst Toller who committed suicide in New York in 1939. The notebook had apparently been unearthed in the basement of a condemned New York hotel, and when Ruth reads it the memories come flooding back. Funder became a friend of the real-life Ruth Wesemann in Ruth’s later years in Sydney, and her notes on sources indicate how closely she tried to base the novel on what is known. At the same time the book is more than “faction”; she has successfully transformed the material into a narrative of individual endeavour and survival, one that examines intricate human themes. This was the first novel by Melbourne-born Anna Funder and won the Miles Franklin Award in 2012. Her previous publication, “Stasiland”, won the Samuel Johnson prize.

Two Brothers

By Ben Elton THIS is a heart-rending story of two boys growing up in a Jewish family under the darkening shadow of the Nazi regime. Born in Berlin on 24 February 1920, the same day as

Family affair: Ben Elton’s uncle Gottfried (left) and his father Ludwig Ehrenberg. Lucky escape: Ben Elton’s family managed to flee Germany just a month before Hitler occupied Tubingen in 1939.

Frankston Times 28 April 2014

OUR ANZACS the birth of the Nazi party in Munich, and raised by the same parents, one boy is Jewish and his adopted brother is Aryan. At first their origins are irrelevant. But as the political landscape changes they are forced to make decisions with horrifying consequences. The brothers end up on opposite sides in World War Two-one with the Waffen-SS, and the other with the British army. The author, Ben Elton, is perhaps better known as the comedian who wrote the scripts for Blackadder and The Young Ones. The story is to a certain extent based on Eltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own family. His uncle was

born Gottfried Ehrenberg to a secular Jewish family which fled Germany in 1939. After anglicizing his name to Geoffrey Elton the uncle enlisted in the army, later became a prominent historian and received a knighthood. However, a cousin, Heinz Ehrenberg, who was adopted (an Aryan) stayed behind to work the family farm when his parents fled the country. He was subsequently drafted into the Wehrmacht. After hostilities ceased the two cousins discovered that they both served in Italy and at one point fought within a mile of one another.

Divided: Ben Eltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ancestors ended up on opposite sides with one uncle fighting for German and one for Britain.

Panthers put on notice after dismal defeat NEPEAN LEAGUE By Toe Punt PEARCEDALE coach Ben Cadd has put his players on notice after their pathetic display against Somerville on Anzac Day. On a day when players should have felt a sense of privilege and pride to play a game of footy to honour the men and women who have and continue to serve our country, the Panthers were lethargic, effortless and weak. Somerville kicked the first seven goals of the game and finished with nine of the first 10 goals of the match. The game was over at half-time when the spirited Eagles led 9.5 (59) to 1.9 (15). The Panthers showed a little more in the second half but still went down by 52 points, 16.14 (110) to 7.16 (58). Cadd said after the dismal pre-season that his club had endured, it wasn’t surprising to see them without a win at this stage of the season. Pearcedale had low attendance rates by players during the pre-season, resulting in the loss of a number of players. “When you don’t commit to the season, it’s hard to expect any great results,” Cadd said. “We looked disinterested and refused to play to instruction. Our game plan is pretty simple but we still fail to carry it out. “If players don’t want to play for the Pearcedale Football Club, then I’m happy to sign a clearance form and they can go and play somewhere else. “I was honest with the players after the game and told them if they didn’t

want to commit, then don’t bother coming to training on Tuesday night,” Cadd said. While Pearcedale had a match it would rather forget, Somerville kick started its season. The Eagles were ordinary in their first two matches but really hit back on Friday, their good players getting plenty of the footy. Cal Dixon was dominant, especially early, Leigh Stewart got plenty of it in his 300th game, Jedd Sutton had the ball on a string playing forward and through the middle, Josh Collie ran around doing as he liked providing enormous run from half back, Kane McKenzie, playing at full back, destroyed a lacklustre Pat Heijden and Todd Farrelly marked anything

and everything that came near him. Sutton and Farrelly finished with four goals each. The only shining light for Pearcedale was Basil Sibosado, who played half forward and finished with three goals and gave a real effort. Rye stormed home to beat Devon Meadows in a low scoring game, 9.15 (69) to 7.10 (52). Brady Egan was superb for the winners with five goals while Jake and Luke Semmel and Jai Lloyd were also significant in the win. Ryan Semmel is still a contestant in the reality TV show The Rookie, which offers players the chance to be drafted by an AFL club. Callum O’Hare and Clint Setford were among the best for the Panthers, while

James Bow, who kicked 12 goals last week, was restricted to just one major. Some individual brilliance from boom Hastings recruit Justin Berry and long-time stars Jason Kestle and Colin McVeigh helped the home side shake off Frankston Bombers on Anzac Day. Dylan Hand with four goals, Daniel Wishart and coach Brendan Dunne were also big contributors in the win. Trailing by seven points at three quarter time, the Blues struggled to get going in the last but eventually the quality all over the ground shone through and they were able to kick clear to win 13.12 (90) to 10.12 (72). The Blues played selfish footy in the first three and a half quarters while the opposition did exactly the opposite.

Brendan Dunne coached sides are usually a very disciplined, cohesive, committed football team but the Blues are a long way off that at the moment. They run forward of the footy, are not prepared to push back to defend and try and be too cute with the footy. Talent, which the Blues have it in spades, will only get them so far. They need to lift their work rate and stay disciplined and structured to compete against the best. The Bombers were fantastic but rely very much on their good players to get the job done - Mitch Bosward, Jay Reynolds, James Degenhardt, Duncan Proud, Zac Longham (six goals), Shaun Foster and Jeremy Waixel. The Bombers won’t be easy beats this season and the kids will continue to improve with game time. Red Hill is on top of the ladder after thrashing Tyabb 27.16 (178) to 2.3 (15). While the woes of the Yabbies are understandable, Red Hill recorded its first 20-plus goal win in more than a decade on Saturday. The Hillmen have arrived. Hillmen coach Tony Blackford rested five players for the match, all with soreness. It made little difference, Jarred Eames booting six goals and Michael Dillon five, while Matt Hyden kicked three and was one of the best players on the ground, along with Harry Larwill and Michael Mock. Ethan Rahilly was the best of the Yabbies. Elsewhere, Crib Point defeated reigning premier Dromana by just one point on Saturday, 13.16 (94) to 13.15 (93). Sorrento took advantage of poor finishing by Rosebud to win 12.16 (88) to 11.18 (84).

Kangas prove point with fighting win PENINSULA LEAGUE By Toe Punt LANGWARRIN proved that it is capable of playing with the big boys of Peninsula League after fighting off Mt Eliza at Lloyd Park on Saturday. The Kangas appeared to be the big improvers of the competition leading up to the beginning of the season and backed that up by winning their opening two games of the season in easy fashion. However, the first two wins came against sides - Karingal and Pines - that are not expected to play finals footy in 2014. The real test for Langwarrin was on Saturday and it came out of it with a big pass mark, winning 13.9 (87) to 8.13 (61). The Redlegs won the toss and kicked with the aid of a three goal breeze in the first quarter. Although leading at the change by 11 points, the Redlegs probably didn’t do enough with the advantage they had. By half time, Langwarrin had kicked six second quarter goals to one and opened up a more than handy 16-point lead. The Kangas went into the game without key ruckman Luke O’Neil but replacement Nick Hammill, along with regular ruckman Matt Naughton, had the better of Redlegs man mountain John Meesen. Rikki Johnson was also back after missing a week and Matt Dimkos

made his debut. The home side set up the win in the third quarter, booting six goals against the breeze to Mt Eliza’s four majors. At the final change, the Kangas led by 30 points. The final quarter was a scrap, the visitors booting four behinds to be the only scorers of the term. Langwarrin named young star Blake Harkness their best player, along with Hammill, Luke Churcher and Dan Wehner. Beau Muston booted three goals playing through the middle and in attack. Winning coach Gavin Artico said Harkness was “a gun”. “Blake just makes the right decisions all of the time and we all love him being in the team,”Artico said. “It was a real high pressure game. It looked sloppy and scrappy from where I stood but talking to Mt Eliza and my own players after the game, they said the pressure was enormous throughout the game. “From my point of view, for this group to hang in there and win a really high intensity game was really pleasing. “Mt Eliza hit the front in the third quarter and in the past we probably would have buckled. But we got on with the job, hit back and opened up a five goal break. “It was a really important win for us. We are improving all the time and if we are going to play finals footy, we have to beat good sides like Mt Eliza,” Artico said.

Langwarrin sits in second place on the ladder, one of three unbeaten teams of the competition, along with YCW and Edithvale. Frankston YCW is on top of the ladder with a massive percentage after beating Karingal by a whopping 29 goals. The Stonecats booted 13 goals in the opening half and a further 15 in the second hour, winning 28.20 (188) to 1.4 (10). YCW forward Ricky Morris booted six goals to make it 16 for the season while Michael Chaplin and Dave Bodley finished with three each. Anthony Barry, who is on Western Bulldogs VFL top-up list, was named best afield. Luke Van Raay and Michael Burke were named Karingal’s best. Before the game, YCW coach Scott Mathers said that the structure of his side hadn’t changed a lot in the off season. “We were disappointed to lose a couple of players during the off season but were fortunate to maintain the majority of our list,” Mathers said. “When you have the quality of our list, you should be confident that you can still perform against the best sides in the competition. “We might lose Bundy (Barry) for a few games and Ash Eames may move back to Albury but at this stage, they’re playing and playing well. “We tinkered with a few things but not a lot has changed in terms of our game style. If it’s not broken, I don’t

see the need to fix it,” Mathers said. Mornington coach Stuart Seager wanted a big scalp and he got just that after his side thrashed Bonbeach by 43 points. Seager said before the game that if his side was to be a real threat this season, it needed to play well against Bonbeach. “The reality is that we’ve recruited well in the off season and if we are to be considered a top three chance, we need to beat Bonbeach on our own ground,” Seager said. Mornington trailed by two goals at quarter time but booted six unanswered goals in the second term to lead by five goals at the break. Inaccuracy (15.21 to 10.8) cost the Doggies a bigger win in the end. Michael Gay dominated in the ruck once again for the winners while Aiden Speedy again got plenty of the footy, along with Danny Nolan. Shaun Foster booted three majors for the Sharks while Mark Tyrell, Matt Clifford and Jackson Casey were named amongst their best. Pines registered its first win of the season, dominating after quarter time to beat Chelsea by 45 points, 14.11 (95) to 7.8 (50). Shaun White kicked three goals and Dale Tedge and Guy Hendry two each for the Pythons while 18-year-old Jayden Luca finished with a couple of majors and plenty of touches playing at half forward. Todd Gardiner and Jack Greeley were the Gulls’ best while Jayden At-

tard and Matty Baxter found plenty of the footy once again. Chelsea coach Paul Howroyd said he wasn’t expecting miracles from him team. “We have a lot of new faces and the guys who are here really want to be here. We’ll keep improving and that’s all we can do at this stage,” Howroyd said. In the final match of the round, reigning premier Edithvale-Aspendale had to pull out all of its tricks to get over Seaford. Coach Troy Shannon said before the game that things were always tough against Seaford. “I don’t know what it is but we always seem to have trouble beating Seaford. In fact, they’ve had the wood over us for some time,” he said. History almost repeated itself on Saturday, Edithvale coming from eight points down at three-quarter time to eventually win by 10 points, 12.12 (84) to 10.14 (74). The Tigers welcomed back Brayden Irving to the team as a result of Frankston VFL’s Development squad having a bye. Whilst Irving didn’t have a major impact, he still helped the structure and potency of the team. The Eagles went in without Tim Mavric and Timmy Mannix, while Beau Turner resumed in the reserves. The Eagles’ Jeremy Heys was superb with three goals to be one of the best players on the ground, while Jeremy Stokes was Seaford’s best. Frankston Times 28 April 2014
