W H O WA S

TEDDY LARKIN? Many of our members and guests will have now dined or ordered a meal from Teddy Larkin’s Seafood and Steakhouse, but only some may know the story behind the name. It is fitting, as we approach ANZAC Day that we share with you who Teddy Larkin was and why he became the name of one of our restaurants at the new Harbord Diggers.

Teddy Larkin was born in Newcastle in 1880. A miner’s son, Larkin’s family moved to Sydney when he was young, where he secured a scholarship to St Joseph’s College, Hunters Hill. There he excelled on the football field, representing the College in its 1896 First Rugby XV. An able sportsman, Larkin participated in cricket, swimming and rugby union after leaving school. Off the field, he worked as a journalist before joining the Metropolitan Police Force. In 1903 he married, made his representative debut for NSW rugby, and was selected as hooker for the Wallabies’ Test against the All Blacks. Larkin’s love of sport saw him leave the Police Force in 1909, when he took over administration of the NSW Rugby League. Gifted with brilliant organisational, promotional and public speaking skills, Larkin quickly turned the fortunes of the struggling NSW Rugby League around and saw the code’s popularity rise rapidly. In 1913, Larkin was elected to the NSW Legislative Assembly, where he

was touted as a future State Premier. Tragically, however, the outbreak of World War I put paid to Larkin’s future ambitions and plans. Within ten days of war being declared, Larkin enlisted in the Army, saying, “I cannot engage in the work of recruiting and urge others to enlist unless I do so myself.” Sergeant Teddy Larkin landed with his Battalion at Anzac Cove on 25 April 1915. During the desperate struggles of that dreadful day, Larkin was shot and fatally wounded. “There’s plenty worse than me out there,” he was reported as saying when he waved on the stretcher bearers who came to collect him. He died later that day on the battlefield of Gallipoli. He was 35 years old. Teddy Larkin was an all-round good bloke, a family man who gave selflessly to the community in his work; on the sporting field; in public office, and in making the ultimate sacrifice for his country.

PROGRESSING TOWARDS FINAL COMPLETION

Since the official launch of the new Harbord Diggers in June 2018, we have not only been busy serving our growing membership and guests, but we have been progressing towards final completion of the entire development, that in the coming months will see the fruition of our plans. We are striving to deliver on our vision to create a thriving intergenerational hub; the first of its kind in Australia that is recognised as a benchmark for the community. This approach is good for the entire community that benefits from the improved amenities, enhanced hospitality offerings, social activities and increased community engagement. We have already seen the benefits of this approach to our members and the community.
