■ Asian project could cost $1 million...

Golden gateway not need it and to which increasing numbers of residents are becoming opposed”. “You’ve still got to look at value for money,” he said. “Should we proceed with the project at any cost?” Greater Dandenong chief executive John Bennie said last week the council had not made a final decision on “whether or not it will proceed with the project”. “If it chooses to proceed council will complete the project in the 2014-’15 financial year.” The gateway, proposed as a regional landmark near the corner of Buckingham and Windsor avenues, has been a controversial target since it was announced in 2010. Last year, it was attacked by the South East Melbourne Vietnamese Association for being “too Chinese” in design - leading to a compromise design including Chinese, Cambodian, Vietnamese and English calligraphy. Springvale Asian Business Association spokesman Stan Chang said he’d leave the cost question to the council. The association has deposited $160,000 of its project contribution with the council. According to the council report, part if not all of the structure could come from China, where fabricators specialise in making such gateways. Some components such as earthenware tiles cannot be sourced locally, it stated. “Council will endeavour to find local suppliers capable of delivering part of the structure; however the cost and risk to coordinate is higher.” The council plans to use local builders to assemble the structure.

A COST blow-out could yet cause Greater Dandenong Council to scuttle plans for a longawaited Asian gateway in Springvale. Councillors narrowly voted to retain the project, which had attracted tenders ranging from $945,000 to more than $1 million - about triple the council’s pre-tender estimates. In an effort to drive down costs, the council has chosen not to accept any of the tenders but will send a delegation on up to three trips to China to procure materials and oversee quality control at a cost of up to $20,100. A council report estimates it can rein in the project’s cost to between $621,000-$759,000 which still may exceed the project’s approved $645,000 budget. The project is co-funded by its proponent the Springvale Asian Business Association ($200,000) and the state Office of Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship ($175,000). The council has vowed to pitch in $270,000, with additional costs met with unidentified savings in the council’s capital works budget. Cr Sean O’Reilly said the majority of councillors “just want to see the project delivered”. The council would cause damage to goodwill with Springvale’s main traders body if it was to “abruptly pull out”, he said. Councillor Peter Brown, in opposing the project, said its utility was surpassed by the anticipated benefits of removing Springvale’s level crossing . He questioned the wisdom of investing $1 million in “an archway of no commercial benefit, in an area of Springvale that does

Grow-house baby-sitters By CAM LUCADOU-WELLS A SPRINGVALE couple has been convicted, fined and sentenced to unpaid work for “baby-sitting” a cannabis grow-house. Patrick Walter Giaccherini, 44, and Kirsty Nadine Mastroianni, 35, had been arrested after five weeks of police surveillance of a Mulgrave house in June and July, Dandenong Magistrates’ Court was told on Monday. Magistrate Jack Vandersteen commented it was a “sophisticated” operation worth up to $15,000, which was “out of the league” of the two co-accused. “You’re really on a tight line at the moment,” the magistrate told Mastroianni. “You’re dealing with people

who are well and truly outside your league. “You just don’t know who they are. People who can put in an electrical bypass in shows the type of people they are.” Mr Vandersteen told Giaccherini: “You’re out of work and out of money, and that’s why people sitting behind these syndicates suck you in.” Both co-accused had met after broken long-term marriages with children, were low on money but were “masters of their own destruction”, their lawyer said. “Drugs have been part of it. But both say they don’t have a significant drug problem. “They were baby-sitting the crop. The money (behind the operation) was provided by others.” Mastroianni ended her mar-

riage that included mutual drug-using and being allegedly beaten up “many times” by her husband. The trigger point was discovering his affair with a Russian stripper. She lost custody of her three children because she couldn’t afford to support them. Giaccherini’s marriage ended due to his extra-marital affair. The co-accuseds’ lawyer said he “virtually handed over” his trucking business to his ex-wife out of guilt and to look after their two children. Police prosecutor Jodi Kellow said investigators found 64 plants grown in four cannabis rooms in the grow-house, including in the garage. About $3336 of electricity had been stolen through a bypass system, the court was told. A pink sports bag containing $8525

cash was also discovered. Leading Senior Constable Kellow said the rooms were sealed with plastic, their curtains drawn, door hinges were reversed so they opened outwards, with variable-height heat lamps, irrigation and fertiliser and nutrient systems for each pot. The pair were also charged with the theft of credit-cards found on a restroom floor in Swan Hill in August, Mastroianni using them for more than $4000 of purchases. Giaccherini denied knowing his partner used stolen credit cards for the purchases. Mr Vandersteen convicted and sentenced both co-accused to a 12-month community corrections order with 150 hours of unpaid work against Mastroianni and 200 hours for Giaccherini.

Proud paramedic is privileged to serve By CASEY NEILL PARAMEDIC Peter Simpson has dedicated more than three decades of his life to helping strangers when they need it most, but he considers the role a privilege. The 56-year-old was among 59 paramedics and ambulance employees presented with Ambulance Victoria staff service awards late last month. Mr Simpson accepted 30-year awards for long service and safe driving at a ceremony at SkyHigh Mt Dandenong. He only pursued the career because his application for the police force - following in his father’s footsteps - was turned down. “I had a very mild colour vision deficit, which wouldn’t stop you getting in today,” he said. He came across an advertisement for paramedics while looking through a newspaper, and thought back to a car accident he encountered at age 19. “I just had a natural instinct to pull up and to help,” he said. “There were adults there older than me, panicking. “That fuelled the ambition to go for it. Rather than be scared, I wanted to know what to do.” He applied for the job - along with 1000 other hopefuls. “I had no credentials at all. I thought ‘I need something medical, I haven’t seen a sick person in my life’,” he said. Mr Simpson worked at Dandenong Hospital as an orderly for 12 months, completed first aid courses and reapplied. That was in 1981, and he hasn’t looked back. He worked in the city then did a stint in Gippsland before

Thieves prove fleet of feet WOULD-BE thieves triggered Dandenong Stadium security alarms and fled empty-handed - and without the ladder they brought along. They used it to climb onto the roof of the Stud Road sports hub, where they cut a hole to access the office area sometime between 10.30pm on Sunday 6 April and 5am the following day. Police are appealing for anyone who saw a trade vehicle in the area during this time to come forward.

Peter Simpson is a MICA paramedic based at Dandenong. 118441 completing Mobile Intensive Care Ambulance (MICA) training in 1986. “Then I went up to the helicopter,” he said. He worked as a flight paramedic with the air ambulance for 12 years, and came to the Dandenong MICA station four years ago for a change of pace. His regular call-outs range from patients with shortness of breath to car crashes, to farm accidents involving tractors and chainsaws. “You’re there to help, do the best you can,” he said.

“Often luck plays a part, why some survive and others don’t. You don’t take it personally. “But you’ve got to remain human, and you’re not bulletproof.” Mr Simpson said it was a privilege to treat people. “It could be someone with a stubbed toe, or delivering babies, or someone with their head blown off,” he said. “The trust that people have for you. You walk into their homes a complete stranger. “I don’t think you get that in many other jobs.”

He found himself on the other side of a medical emergency less than a year ago when he suffered a heart attack. He’d thought his chest pain was indigestion. “You can get caught out,” he said. “We’re getting more people like that.” Mr Simpson returned to the job he loves - and surfing - after two months. “I haven’t had any other issues since. There’s still life in me yet,” he said.

Memorials to the greatest honour WITH Anzac Day looming this week, thoughts turn to the gallant service personnel who gave their lives in action during World War I. I can vividly recall two memorials on the corner of my parents’ property ‘Ryecroft’, at Lyndhurst, honouring Charles Payne and Lieutenant Malcolm Kirkham. Both were killed on the bloody battlefields of France. Mr Kirkham, 33, fondly known as Mac to his friends, died in Peronne Wood on the Somme on 2 September 1918. Before joining the 37th Infantry Battalion, Mac Kirkham was a champion rifle shot of world fame, while his brother Don was a champion cyclist, who held many world records. Don won every road race of note in Australia and rode in the 1914 Tour de France. The Argus of Thursday 12 September 1918 carried Mac’s poignant death announcement: KIRKHAM. - Killed in action, on

MY VOICE A MOMENT WITH

MARG STORK 2nd September, 1918, Lieutenant Malcom (Mac), loved eldest son of Mrs Margaret Kirkham, Lyndhurst. “He died that we might live.” - (Inserted by his sorrowing brother and sister-in-law, Don and May, Carrum.) Charles Payne was a driver with the 28th Company of the Australian Army Service Corps. He died from wounds inflicted on 26 April 1918 and is buried in Vignacourt British Cemetery, Vignacourt, Somme, France. Two trees were planted near a corner of my parents’ property commemmorating Mac and Charles. The

nameplates were made by Herbert McKibbon, an old school friend. Mr and Mrs McKibbon senior were pioneering farmers in the area, and they both died in 1918. Jack, the youngest of the McKibbon family married Irene Cox. The McKibbons’ other son, Adam, enlisted in the AIF in 1914 and returned home from France in 1919. As a youngster growing up I would visit the memorials often to water the trees. On Anzac Day my thoughts always turn to these two men, whose lives were too short. The memorial was a stone’s throw to an avenue of oak trees, which to our own family was also a memorial site. In between the birth of my late brother, who was 11 years older than me, my mother lost two daughters, both stillborn at Nurse Ahearn’s private hospital near St James Anglican Church in Dandenong.

In those days you were permitted to farewell your own dead and I can recall how she told me my sisters were placed in handmade boxes lined with felt which my father used as an ornotholigist to send bird eggs overseas. The girls were reverentially buried in the oak tree avenue. Like the trees on the corner, the oak trees were regarded as a sacred setting. Dandenong RSL will mark Anzac Day with a Dawn Service and march. The Dawn Service starts at 5.45am at the Pillars of Freedom on Clow Street. The march starts at the RSL, 44 Clow Street, Dandenong, at 10.30am and concludes with a service at the Pillars of Freedom. AUSSIE PRIDE I was pleased to learn that local schoolchildren will be able to celebrate the special centenary of the Anzac legend under an Australian-made, Aussie flag, thanks to Le Pine Funerals.

April 25 next year marks the 100year commemoration of the Anzac spirit and Australians will pause to salute the Australian flag among other special ceremonies. John Fowler, National Senior VicePresident of the Australian Funeral Directors Association and general manager of Le Pine Funerals, said the company wanted to mark the milestone by ensuring schools were equipped with new, Australian-made national flags. “We hope the flags will assist the schools to mark their own remembrance events in a very special way,” he said. Schools can request flags from the manger of Le Pine Funeral Services Dandenong, Ian Maxwell, by emailing imaxwell@lepinefunerals.com.au from this Anzac Day 25 April to the end of May 2014.

Drug help plea By CAM LUCADOU-WELLS A MOTHER has spoken out about a lack of support for drug addicts after her son’s application to stay in a private rehab centre on bail was rejected in Dandenong Magistrates’ Court last Monday. Eva Nad spoke out from the gallery after her son John Zoltan Nad was led away into custody, standing accused of committing at least 35 commercial burglaries and causing two police pursuits. She told the court: “This is a person on drugs. When will the government realise they need support and help? “The system fails for my son and it fails for me too.” Nad’s lawyer had earlier told the court his client’s family had “pooled” their money to fund an expensive, intensive stay at Raymond Hader Clinic in a bid to snap Nad from a long-term addiction. Magistrate Pauline Spencer ruled against bailing Nad because he would not be locked down inside the 24-7 staffed clinic.

“He’s not terribly easy to locate,” Ms Spencer said - noting an arrest warrant for Nad being outstanding since October. “The clinic says you’re motivated and your family is keen to get you some treatment. “My concern is it’s not secure even though it’s said to be an excellent program. You would be at large and you have shown you’ve been difficult to apprehend. “There’s a tendency towards some erratic and dangerous driving and an allegation of threatening a victim with a crowbar.” Nad’s lawyer said his client’s failure to attend court was due to his substance abuse, which would be alleviated by rehabilitation. He raised doubts on the strength of some of the police’s CCTV evidence on some of the charges. Police submitted a 12-page summary of offences, including a police pursuit of Nad driving “erratically” up to 130km/h in a 60km/h zone in Dandenong in April 2012. During the pursuit, police al-

He stood accused of 35 commercial burglaries across Melbourne, many of them since October’s arrest warrant. The alleged thefts included chequebooks, a $150,000 ute and trailer, credit cards and scrap metal. Nad had been allegedly found with cannabis, crystal methamphetamine and various knives in his cars on various occasions. He was accused on several occasions of trying to cash stolen cheques and making purchases on the credit cards. In October, he allegedly bought 12 bottles of Johnnie Walker Black Label scotch for nearly $600 on a stolen credit card. An attempt to buy a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet was declined.

globe into unpayable debt. It compounds poverty, environmental destruction and genocide. Glorifying the purveyors of war will just keep us going round in circles. Russell Forster, Springvale South

SPRINGVALE’S boom gates will block traffic for the final time this week. There’ll be an official opening for the long-awaited level crossing removal project at 7.30am on Tuesday 22 April. A DEFENCE lawyer and a police informant were stuck in an uneasy standoff in Dandenong Magistrates’ Court last Monday. The lawyer appeared not to hear a short reply from the police officer in the witness box. During an awkward twominute period, the lawyer read papers while the informant shuffled files - one waiting for the other to speak as puzzled onlookers exchanged amused glances. Finally, the silence broke when the lawyer inquired whether the informant had answered his question. The magistrate, breaking her patient silence, told the lawyer that the officer had done so.

A SLIP of the tongue at last week’s council meeting had Dandenong’s new community square overtaking a Melbourne landmark. Cr Youhorn Chea referred to “the opening of Federation ... oh, of our square ... “ and added “people don’t need to go to Federation Square now.”

He pushed the victim, who fell over a footstool, and held her against the wall by her throat and told her to get out of his face. The court heard his drinking had since reduced and there’d been no other domestic violence reports during their eight-year relationship. Magistrate Jack Vandersteen said it was a case of “something trivial became very serious” and sentenced the man to an 18-month good-behaviour bond.

It’s no ‘Wembley’ By CASEY NEILL SANDOWN Cobras could soon be playing matches under lights. But one City of Greater Dandenong councillor fears a “miniature Wembley in the back residential streets of Springvale North” could result. The council last Monday approved plans for a new lighting system at the football club’s home ground, Edinburgh Reserve. Plans to upgrade the pavilion at the Noble Park ground couldn’t go ahead because grant funding didn’t eventuate, so the council reallocated its $100,000 contribution to the lights project, alongside $10,000 from the club. But Cr Peter Brown expressed “serious reservations” about whether residents had been adequately consulted. “If you lived in a quiet street, would you welcome the street becoming emblazoned with light after hours to facilitate visitors to night football?” he said. Cr Brown said the existing building was rundown and the existing lighting “next to useless”, but amenity issues were under threat. “We must ensure that an acceptable balance is maintained between the interests of the club and the residents,” he said. Sandown Cobras general manager Brett Phillips said the light system would be switched on within months. “The current lights were put up in 1990 but don’t light up the whole ground, so we’re restricted as to where we can train,” he said.

Cobra Jake D’Atri in a match against the Doveton Eagles at Edinburgh Reserve last May. Mr Phillips said the new lights could run at night-match standard, but the club had made no plans to play at night. “It has plenty of appeal to play some feature night matches, but we wouldn’t turn all our home games into night matches,” he said. He said the club loved being nestled in closely to the surrounding neighbourhood. “Most people come past walking their dog asking when we’ll be playing on the weekend. They come along to watch us,” he said. “I can’t see any negative impact.” Mr Phillips hopes funding for the pavilion refurbishment will come from the council in the next financial year.

“All the plans are drawn up, and costed,” he said. “The councillors need to see where it fits into all the projects they need to tick off.” He said the social rooms were built in 1961 and were also used as changerooms until new player facilities arrived in 1984. “It’d be fair to say they’ve had a fair bit of wear and tear,” Mr Phillips said. “We have 80 football players, plus netballers, plus an allabilities team for kids with an intellectual disability, and we’re trying to exist in a facility we’ve clearly outgrown. “We want to make Edinburgh Reserve a sporting/community hub, so that outside groups can use the facility during the week.”

A DANDENONG Afghan refugee hopes images of his treacherous journey to freedom will change public opinion on asylum seekers. Barat Ali Batoor will have an audience of more than 30,000 people when he speaks at the Sydney Opera House on 26 April for ideas festival TEDxSydney. “My responsibility is to give the actual story to educate people about asylum seekers and their path and their plight,” he said. The 30-year-old last year won two Walkley Awards for excellence in photojournalism, and works as a community guide with AMES, helping other people to settle. “I’ll be speaking about the situation of the Hazaras in Afghanistan and Pakistan and about my journey from Afghanistan to Australia,” he said. “The photos will be about the targeted killings that are happening in Pakistan. “The Hazaras there are being targeted. Ethnic cleansing is happening there. “The rest are from my journey, to show how terrible, how risky, how dangerous this journey is. “If I’m successful to educate people then the people can decide. “They can put influence or put pressure on the government. “We should really tell the people who we are and what is happening to us.” Mr Batoor said people were paying “a big amount of money to take a risky journey”. He’s captured visually just how dangerous the journey is and the treatment asylum seekers receive at the end.

Robber in the wrong room By CAM LUCADOU-WELLS A WOMAN pleaded guilty to going on a stealing spree after claiming she inadvertently went into the wrong room in a Sandown Park motel in October. Dandenong Magistrates’ Court heard last Monday that 31-year-old Candice Albon of Noble Park had stolen two handbags, a Pierre Cardin purse, a Gucci watch, an iPhone, medication, $60 cash and clothing items from the victim’s unoccupied room. Prosecutor Jodi Kellow said Albon had earlier checked into room six but used her keycard to open the door to the victim’s room eight. CCTV footage showed the woman checking out of the mo-

tel a short time after the heist. When interviewed by police, Albon gave back a handbag and purse. Police sought a restitution order for $3700 in unrecovered items and cash. A jail term suspended for two years had expired two months before the offences. The court was told Albon had a long history of drug abuse stemming from her teenage years. She had relapsed in August with heroin and prescription medication, but her use of methadone had since been reduced under an ongoing medical detox program. “Before this offence she was doing quite well,” the accused’s lawyer said.

“She went into the wrong room. She didn’t realise the key had opened the wrong door.” She had been in a “heightened situation” at the time, checking into the motel after a domestic violence incident that day, her lawyer said. She had also been concerned about the welfare of her children. Magistrate Jack Vandersteen ordered Albon to undergo assessment for a community corrections order including unpaid work and rehabilitation. He said a jail term would have been a “quick fix”, noting the accused’s “positive steps”. “Whether you can maintain that, only time can tell. Courts have given you opportunities before.”

Cubby makes ap-pear-rance A CUBBY house in the shape of a pear is promoting health and well-being at Dandenong Market. The Cubby Pear interactive art project is on display near The Kitchen as a symbol of Healthy Together Greater Dandenong - a municipalitywide commitment to being healthier. Visitors are encouraged to snap a selfie with the pear, pledge to healthy eating and upload the photo to social media with the hashtag ‘cubbypear’. The pear, designed by artist Julian Clavijo, will travel around Greater Dandenong after its stint at the market, where it will be open every market day until Sunday 4 May.

Police seize drugs and shotgun executed a drug warrant at a factory in Brooklyn Avenue on 10 April. They found 500 grams of cannabis, one gram of hashish, cannabis seeds, five cannabis plants, a shotgun, ammunition and explosives. A 58-year-old Dandenong

man has been bailed to appear at Dandenong Magistrates’ Court on 21 May over the haul. “It’s always concerning to find firearms and ammunition and a relief to get them off the street,” Det Sen Const Taylor said.

SPRINGVALE’S Cassandra Lim has captured music on canvas. The 18-year-old’s artwork Symphony Series is on display in the Top Arts exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. It features outstanding work from 49 VCE graduates who last year completed Art or Studio Arts studies. “I was really, really, really happy,” Cassandra said. “I was really surprised as well. I’ve been to Top Arts twice and I didn’t expect my work to be shortlisted and exhibited.” She created the four-canvas artwork during studies at Haileybury College in Keysborough. “I was inspired my own

experience as a classical musician,” she said. “I really enjoy music and wanted to portray that in a visual way. “The four canvases pretty much are expressing music and the emotion it conveys.” Cassandra said her Studio Art studies started with exploration. “You start off with a topic so I started off with music, and pretty much went from the first idea and used colour and texture throughout the term to create my end result,” she said. “I really like playing with colour and texture and the abstract senses. “That’s how I got to my final endpoint.” She said it was a little nerve-

wracking to know so many people would be viewing her work. “At school, I’d received compliments but when there’s so many people there’s going to be a few people that don’t like your work,” she said. “I guess that’s part of the journey.” Cassandra is studying Engineering and Commerce at Monash University but continuing with art as a hobby, hoping more of her work will grace gallery walls in the future. “Hopefully if I get a chance I’ll find some time to do further learning on art,” she said. “But as of right now it’s just a hobby and it’s a really fun hobby. Whenever I get the time I just paint or draw.” Top Arts is on display until 20 July and entry is free.

Dandy did it PATTERSON Cheney Toyota has attributed its Toyota Dealer of the Year award to the Dandenong community. “We’ve had such a great community who’ve supported us,” general sales manager David Haines said. “How they’ve supported us, it’s then enabled us to perform at the level we’ve been able to perform at.” He said the state award was “not just about how many cars you sell”. “It’s more to do with customer service, more to do with selling cars, more to do with being profitable, doing all the right things through marketing,” he said. The dealership organised a community planting for National Tree Day last year, held a snow day in Springvale and is supporting the Good for Footy program. “We’re always looking at what’s the next thing we can do in terms of getting our message out to the community,” Mr Haines said. Patterson Cheney took home awards for being the best dealership in its prime market area (PMA) every quarter, its sales department and its customer relations. “As you keep winning the categories, it builds up to the Toyota Dealer of the Year, so it’s all points-driven,” he said.

Six new hightech jobs set

Michael Kaye, Alan Cary, Johnny Torcasio, Joe Silva and Picture: STEWART CHAMBERS David Haines. 118494 Mr Haines and his management team accepted the award at the Crown Palladium earlier this month. He said the dealership’s staff reflected the multiculturalism in the community. “If you can’t supply someone who can communicate with them effectively, they’ll just go somewhere else,” he said. “Our motto in the marketplace is that we speak 11 languages. “We’ve got Sri Lankans and Bosnians and Fijians and so

forth that work for us. “They have that relationship within the community. There’s respect and trust. “They’ll just keep coming back and bringing their friends and their friends’ friends, and before you know it one customer’s brought you 10.” Mr Haines said he’d be looking to back up the award next year. “In our industry in particular, you’re only as good as your last sale,” he said.

A NEW high-tech manufacturing plant in Dandenong will be a leading example for other companies and create six new jobs. Technology Minister Gordon Rich-Phillips officially opened the $125,000 facility at SRXGlobal, where about 200 people are employed, on 11 April. “Investments like these are demonstrating the confidence that technology companies like SRXGlobal have in Victorian manufacturing and, more broadly, the Victorian economy,” he said. Mr Rich-Phillips welcomed SRXGlobal’s investment and said the Rapid prototype line would enhance the company’s technical capabilities. He said it would be a welcome resource for the electronic manufacturing sector and an example to other companies seeking to create new markets and boost exports. SRXGlobal’s key markets include medical devices, communications, security, defence and industrial, and it manufactures the world’s smallest ultrasound machine. Mr Rich-Phillips said SRXGlobal’s local customers included the CSIRO, Rio Tinto, ResMed and Siemens Rail. “Significantly, the company’s export market contributes up to 75 per cent of its production,” he said. “This is comprised of direct exports and manufacturing into products by their clients for subsequent export sales to the USA, Europe and Asia.” SRXGlobal also delivers design for manufacture and test services, procurement, printed circuit board and box building assembly, testing and repair services, and quality management.

COVER STORY

HIGH TIME FOR VALUE / PARK CENTRAL ESTATE With the south-east continuing to welcome new residents, Officer’s Park Central Estate is standing out as a high value estate for homebuyers. Released only in February this year, the stage three Liberty Park release has nearly sold out. With the estate now having exceeded its milestone 100th sale, National Pacific Properties general manager Steve Copland says there is no sign of demand slowing down. “Park Central is drawing in a really diverse range of homebuyers, from young couples to large families and even retirees looking for a relaxed lifestyle - they’re all seeing the value in this boutique estate,” Steve said. “We’re offering a beautifully designed neighbourhood that not only includes landscaped parkland with play equipment to entertain kids of all age groups, but it’s also in walking distance from primary schools and a short car ride from all the amenities of the developing Officer town centre. “Park Central is connected to the established Beaconsfield community which borders the estate but is now becoming known as a community in its own right.” Following on from the huge interest of the Liberty Park release, Park Central is set to launch its latest land stage the stage four Hudson release. “The Hudson release is focused on bringing more

choice to homebuyers,” Steve said. “Homebuyers can choose from seven metre wide lots which are 224 square metres in size and perfect for townhouses or those looking to downsize, right up to 18 metre wide lots which are 898 square metres in area - perfect for growing families. “This release also offers a limited number of deeper lots, extending in length between

36 metres and 42 metres, to provide expansive backyard space and ample opportunity for outdoor entertaining - a unique selling point that underscores the relaxed lifestyle Park Central has to offer.” To secure a dream lot in Park Central, visit www. parkcentralestate.com.au or phone Greg Rankin on 0487 888 038.

EASTER ON THE ESTATE The McDonald Real Estate Aspendale Gardens team put together a very successful event on Friday 4 April at its annual Easter egg hunt. A spectacular appearance of the Easter Bunny proved very dramatic, along with the special delivery of 6000 of his Easter eggs for more than 400 very energised children. In the crowd were some very animated and colourful Easter Bunny lookalikes who dressed up for in theme of the occasion and one lucky child walked away with a $100 Toys R Us voucher for her efforts. More than 270 children took part in the colouring competition and these striking masterpieces have lined the

windows of the McDonald Real Estate Aspendale Gardens office windows. The very talented artists who took out the prize of a $50 Toys R Us voucher in their age group went to Abbey, aged, 2, Hannah, 5, Tiffani, 8 and Chloe, 10. The team are looking to put together an even bigger and further fun-filled event next year. Director Michael Choi said: “It really is just an excuse for me to eat chocolate and run around like a big kid.” For more information about other community events the team have planned throughout the year, contact the office at Aspendale Gardens on 9587 6211.

COMMERCIAL & INDUSTRIAL CONTRACTS GIVE TRAINING TICK A DANDENONG trading provider was among the first in Victoria to receive a new State Government tick of approval. Link Employment and Training and 317 others received three-year contacts to deliver government-subsidised training. Higher Education and Skills Minister Peter Hall visited its Cheltenham Road site and said there was now more scrutiny in the contracting process and only the best registered training organisations (RTOs) had been successful. “This in turn provides these training providers with more certainty about their future funding arrangements,” he said. Link delivers training to VET students, pre-apprentices and apprentices in automotive skills and carpentry and has “consistently proven to be a reliable, high-quality and dedicated training provider”. “We have increased levels of financial accountability through changes to our contracting processes and set stronger requirements for providers claiming training subsidies,” Mr Hall said. “The Victorian Coalition Government has raised the bar on quality with higher expectations of training providers, including TAFEs, private providers and Learn Local organisations, backed up by stronger monitoring and compliance checks.” Link Employment and Training is an incorporated not-for-profit organisation, has a presence in Dandenong, Bairnsdale, Frankston, Pakenham and Traralgon and delivers services to 1000 students each year.

NEW HOMES & LAND

BOTANIC RIDGE PROPERTY THRIVING Residents in the leafy suburb of Botanic Ridge are again celebrating the news that the suburb has outstripped many of their south-eastern suburb counterparts as an investment property hot-spot with median house prices increasing by a whopping 15.4 per cent in the past 12 months. After the recent release of RP data, Botanic Ridge ranked highest in the City of Casey for property price growth, outperforming suburbs such as Narre Warren, Berwick, Cranbourne, Lynbrook, Endeavour Hills and even a number of Melbourne’s leafy inner suburbs. Recognised last year as one of Australian Property Investment Magazine’s top 10 suburbs to invest in, Botanic Ridge has grown exponentially since its gazettal as a new suburb in 2009, as astute buyers scramble to snap up blocks at a rapid rate within one of the few leafy pockets left in Melbourne’s south-eastern corridor. With Botanic Ridge Estate’s median house prices jumping from 15.4 per cent in the past 12 months alone, the estate’s development manager Joe Cassera said he wasn’t surprised to hear that Botanic Ridge was outperforming many of the neighbouring regions to offer a sound investment both now and into the future. “Once again, this is great news for existing Botanic Ridge home owners and it also assures future buyers that an investment in this new suburb

will grow in years to come. “Our house and land packages start at just $429,000 which is $67,000 below the Botanic Ridge median price. “It is little wonder that savvy buyers are snapping up their dream home site in the estate it’s really a no brainer!” said Mr Cassera. “Botanic Ridge is uniquely positioned on the gateway to the Mornington Peninsula and is also one of the few remaining suburbs in Melbourne where a semi-rural

lifestyle reigns supreme. “At Botanic Ridge Estate we currently offer larger lots at affordable prices in a premium estate all within easy walking distance of our beautiful parks, gardens, schools and open space as well as the nearby local primary school. “Characterised by beautifully undulating land and sweeping views over the surrounding tree-tops, it’s no wonder our residents love the lifestyle on offer.

“As Botanic Ridge is further developed in line with the new Precinct Structure Plan over the coming years, a host of new facilities including retail, health, sport and schooling opportunities will all be delivered to the suburb so our residents will be able to enjoy every convenience right at their doorstep. “We are thrilled to see the latest RP Data report placing Botanic Ridge high on the list of rising suburbs as it just reaffirms what we’ve been thinking for many

years - that residents who choose to live here have made an excellent investment that will stand the test of time,” he said. Botanic Ridge Estate currently offers a range of quality land allotments ranging from 510 square metres to 817 square metres and starting from $219,000. For more information on Botanic Ridge Estate contact Heather in the sales office on 9785 9339 or head to www.botanicridge. com.au.

Features include a grand entrance foyer featuring double doors, high open ceiling and drop lighting. There is a large formal lounge area located separately to the rear living zone and a staircase located in the heart of the home is saturated in natural light.

Owners can enjoy the large foyer with double entry doors with hob detailing, the spacious rumpus room located off the private outdoor living area, the kitchen, meals and living rooms flowing through to a covered alfresco and outdoor living area. The privately located powder room downstairs has full vanity, basin and mirror. There is also the very popular Indiana 33 which showcases the best of open-plan living.

From the moment visitors step in to the lavish entry foyer they are greeted with a sense of peace through intelligent design optimising light and space.

After the big day of family fun last Saturday, the celebratory fun continues with a formal unveiling at a twilight event on Wednesday 30 April from 6.30pm to showcase the new home designs with live music, finger food and refreshments.

ANZAC DAY 2014 - Lest we forget

Liz’s veteran world view By CASEY NEILL “THEY’VE looked after me. I can look after them.” That’s Liz Pilkington-Brown’s attitude to working at the Noble Park RSL welfare office. “The veteran community, it becomes your family,” she said. “It looks after you, it tries to protect you where it can.” She was married to Vietnam Veteran Rudolf Brown, who died seven years ago. “They really supported me when Rudy died,” she said. And the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) has supported her two daughters, now aged 27 and 30, with their studies. “Four-and-a-half years ago I decided I wanted to give back to the community,” Mrs Pilkington-Brown said. “A lot of people take out. I always felt that there was a need to give back. “Anyone who’s served, to me, deserves our respect.” She took courses in welfare and social work, pensions and advocacy work and volunteers as a pension officer. Mrs Pilkington-Brown said the legislation veterans had to deal with was “very draconian”. “You’ve got someone who’s not well, and you’re sitting there explaining to them ’no you can’t do this, no you can’t do that’,” she said. “And we’re not legal advisors or anything like that. “We give you all the information and you, as the veteran, you have to filter it through and make choices. “But the problem is the veteran is not well. “You’re trying to guide them to the best medical people who can assist them.” Mrs Pilkington-Brown has no military experience. “I have never volunteered or served for Australia,” she said. “My experience is from my family’s background, my father’s background, my father-in-law’s background - what I’ve learnt. “And that’s what I offer them.”

Liz Pilkington-Brown with her grandson Elijah, 7, whose parents are in Picture: DONNA OATES the armed forces. 118119 Her father was in the Merchant Navy in England. “So he came in at the tail end of the war. And so lot of those destroyers and especially the Merchant Navy, they were unarmed,” she said. “They got attacked so much. So the fact that he made it through was pretty amazing.” Her first husband’s father is still alive. “He’s 96-and-a-half, and he fought in New Guinea and Bougainville, and I think he’s just wonderful,” she said. “To me, he has the humility of a soldier that you expect to see. “Our family’s history since they came to Australia in 1890 has always served in the military at one stage or another.

“I admire the tenacity of that and my husband’s grandfather. He came to Australia in 1896. “In the June of 1915, he became naturalised and in the July he applied for the army. “To me, that symbolises the respect he had for Australia as his new country, and he enlisted and he was in France for four years. I just think it’s a remarkable story.” Her husband Rudy went to Vietnam in 1967 - as a reo, or reinforcement. “He was what they call a ‘reg’ (a regular army soldier),” she said. He served with 7RAR, and when they rotated home, he served the rest of his time out with 1RAR. “I met my husband 10 years after Vietnam,” she said.

‘Lest we forget’ service By CASEY NEILL THE crowded bar falls silent as the call “stand to” echoes through the room. It’s 2.30pm on a Thursday at Noble Park RSL. The Noble Park Vietnam Veterans Association is about to honour its fallen comrades. Treasurer Wally Sosnowski reads the names of the servicemen and women who died during that week in each of the 10 years of the Vietnam War. The group’s president Ray McCarthy, from Springvale South, said there were “506-odd names, so that works out to about 10 a week”. “We’ve been doing it now since 1996, so it’s 18 years we’ve had stand to,” he said. Mr Sosnowski reads out how old each member was at the time of their death, the suburb they came from, a summary of their service record and how they died. The dozens of men in the room listen solemnly, only breaking the silence to say “lest we forget” in unison. Mr McCarthy said the group had about 200 members. “We have a couple of war widows of Vietnam vets who are full members, and we have some associate members,” he said. “The Vietnam Veterans Association ex-

ists for welfare. It’s a not-for-profit organisation. “We raise funds to pay the rent for our welfare office. We pay half the rent, the RSL pays the other half. “It’s a lobby group as well.” Mr McCarthy said the sub-branch was among about 24 in Victoria. “Our main thing is to help finance welfare, help our museum down at Phillip Island, and to leave a bit of a legacy for Vietnam veterans once we’re all gone,” he said. The group raises funds for bursaries, and supports child education and Swim Safe programs in Vietnam. Mr McCarthy served in Vietnam with 1 Field Squadron All Australian Engineers and the 1st Australian Civil Affairs Unit. “The engineers were involved in construction and demolition,” he said. “And the civil affairs unit was there to win the hearts and minds of the Vietnamese, a lot of civil projects - drilling wells, building accommodation, building schools, dental, medical ... “Anzac Day is the most important day on the calendar for us - for all ex-servicemen, not just Vietnam vets. “My grandfather was on the Western Front, my father was in New Guinea, so it means a lot to me.”

“He just never settled down. He struggled to get jobs. “There’s no other way to describe it, he was just ill. Then things started getting diagnosed. “He had diabetes and he had heart disease and he had this ... “He had a severe lot of emotional issues.” Mrs Pilkington-Brown spoke about Rudy’s mental health reluctantly. “Whenever people talk about people like that and they talk about mental illness, people build up a picture of always a bad person,” she said. “I don’t want him portrayed as a bad person.” Four years ago, she married another Vietnam veteran, John Pilkington. She joked she was “a glutton for punishment”. “You already know a little bit of what you’re taking on board,” she said. Today, Mrs Pilkington-Brown’s 30-year-old daughter and son-in-law are in the armed forces. “I know a lot of anti-war people talk about war at Anzac Day,” she said. “But to me it’s got nothing to do with war actually. “It’s honouring the servicemen and women that are in the current and past generations and that are long gone. “It’s honouring their service and recognising what they’ve given and what they’ve done.” She feels that the “modern veteran” is hard for society to understand. “The younger veteran today is very articulate, and very well-educated. Very tech-savvy. Their world is Facebook, Twitter ... “ she said. “They are not face to face like Vietnam veterans, or previous veterans. “So we have to get into that world and make them aware that it is a fantastic world they’re using, but unfortunately the systems that they need to get past the gatekeeper, they need to come and see us. “They need to have that one on one still.” Call Lifeline on 13 11 14 for crisis and depression support.

Home for welfare NOBLE Park RSL’s welfare office has a new home. Sub-branch president John Meehan said the Robert Street property had been home to World War II veteran Bob Madden. “He was part of our RSL as well, and we helped him with a lot of his veteran affairs pension issues,” he said. “After Bob passed away his son and daughter-in-law offered us to use this place as our welfare and pension office.” It’s within walking distance of the RSL on Heatherton Road, but “gives us a little bit of separation”. “It has given us extra space, and our own identity around here. And the veterans don’t have any problems in coming around and seeing us here,” he said. The volunteers see veterans, spouses and children from World War II through to today’s conflicts and peacekeeping tours. “We have specialists,” Mr Meehan said. “We assist veterans and their families to obtain their rightful pensions. “If they go by themselves, they’ll get shot down, like a lawyer defending himself in court.” They also lend a ear. “They find it very difficult to speak to their families,” Mr Meehan said. “They know that we’re veterans. We’ve witnessed a lot of the same sort of stuff. “They really appreciate that, knowing they can open up a bit. “The army, navy and air force teach you, when you’re going through training, to just accept what’s going on to get the job done. “But when you get out, they leave that sort of stuff in you still.”

ANZAC DAY 2014 - Lest we forget

RSL calls for recruits By CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS

IT’S time for a youth injection into the ageing ranks of RSLs, says Noble Park RSL sub-branch welfare officer John Meehan. The Vietnam veterans, like Mr Meehan, who are running the sub-branch are nearing their seventies and can hold the reins for perhaps a handful more years. Attracting the next generation - the returned servicepeople from Iraq, Afghanistan and Timor-Leste - to take the lead is proving a challenge. Mr Meehan says the sub-branch, run solely by volunteers, has been bolstered with affiliate members - the children of veterans, members of police and emergency services and defence reservists but only a few ‘contemporary veterans’. His message is that the RSL is there to help the recently-returned veterans with treatment and pension claims for illnesses and disabilities. “The concern is these kids are out there and not being helped. They’ll be having these troubles with their wives and families and we don’t know about them. “We want to help them now.”

Only another veteran can fully know the effects of witnessing the “terrible things” these “kids” see in war. The subbranch can be like a family. It can also direct veterans to specialist services, such as psychiatrists. “They don’t want to tell these terrible things to their mums and dads, even their mates. It’s so difficult to speak about. “We used to think of ourselves as young blokes. We’ve been down the same track. We are sympathetic to their cause. We can talk to them about the same things.” Mr Meehan would go so far as putting out a “We need you” slogan to bring in Gen-Xs and Gen-Ys, males and females. At the moment, the RSL is a hub for food, live bands, golf, fishing, bowls, darts and an extensive military library. “We need blokes with newer ideas and better at computers,” Mr Meehan says. “We really want to embrace the kids.” “We would look at young people taking over from us older blokes and filling up on the committee. Unless we can embrace them in the next few years as volunteers, sub-branches will close.”

Wally was born of war By CASEY NEILL WALLY Sosnowski arrived in Australia on Anzac Day in 1950. The toddler was in the arms of his Polish parents, fleeing war-ravaged Germany to start a new life. “They wouldn’t let us off the boat because everything was shut,” he said. Mr Sosnowski’s mum was a displaced person who was taken from Poland to Germany to work in factories. His father was at university when he got caught in the Warsaw uprising and sent to Germany. “He taught himself English. He learnt German in school. He spoke about five different languages,” Mr Sosnowski said. “When the Americans came through they seconded him into the army as an interpreter.” He was processing displaced people. “That’s how he met mum,” he said. “They were trying to get over to America because while he was in the army he got to know a few of the Americans. “They couldn’t get to America so they went down to Italy, caught the first boat that came along. “It was going to Australia.” Disembarking in his new home isn’t the only reason 25 April means so much to Ms Sosnowski, 67, from Springvale. The Vietnam veteran was conscripted in 1967. “I polish up the old medals and stuff and get ready to go into town,” he said. “We march with our own unit.” During his school days he planned to join the navy. “Dad talked me into going back to school,” he said. “So when I got called up I didn’t really mind.” He completed basic training before being picked to go to the armoured corps, where he did driver and radio courses. Soldiers who’d returned from Vietnam led jungle training at Canungra in Queensland. “It was mainly to get you fit and also you were interactive with your fellow men,” Mr Sosnowski said.

Wally Sosnowski reads out the names of soldiers killed in action in Vietnam. “When we did the 20-mile route march and a lot of people were lagging behind, everyone else would have to turn around and go back. “That was where the mateship began. If they didn’t help whoever was lagging behind, that means everybody would suffer.” Mr Sosnowski was sent to Nui Dat as a reinforcement in 1968. “When I went over there I didn’t know a soul, I didn’t know anybody,” he said. “Being the first one over, all the blokes I’d gone through Canungra with and core training, they were all back in Australia. “Our troops, there were three vehicles to a section, and there was a driver

and crew commander on each. “So the six of you virtually lived and ate and slept together. “So you created a very close bond. “We’d pool our rations. I’d lived on my own in Sydney before I went in so I could cook a bit, so that made me the chief cook!” The Battle of Coral was the second largest conflict of Australia’s Vietnam campaign and Mr Sosnowski was in the thick of it. “The first time Coral got attacked, they overran some of the position and the artillery guys lost one of the guns,” he said. “I was actually on radio duty in the command post back at Nui Dat. I got the call from the armoured corps

blokes that were at Coral. “I had to run around like a headless chook trying to find the commanding officer at Nui Dat. “The next day they said ‘Pack up, we’re going up to Coral’.” Mr Sosnowski was driving the command vehicle. “Which was a lot bigger than the others ... because they had all the radios in there,” he said. “It had six antennas on it. The only thing missing was a target on the side of it. “I found out later on we got shot. “When we got to Coral we had a look at sure enough, there were some bullet holes on the side of the carrier.” Mr Sosnowski’s unit came under at-

tack as they slept that night. “The mortars started coming in and one landed, it would have been 10 to 15 feet in front of us,” he said. It struck and destroyed a recovery truck, used for vehicle repairs. “That was about three o’clock in the morning,” he said. “I got covered in dirt and I thought I was a goner. “We learned how to pray again pretty quickly.” He was involved in a few other “skirmishes”. “But you forget about a lot of those times - or you try to,” he said. “You remember the good times but try to forget the bad ones.”

ANZAC DAY 2014 - Lest we forget Mark and Julie Capper during their 2012 Kokoda trek.

Rob Lowe served in Vietnam for 13 months. 118458 Picture: DONNA OATES

Rob talks about his war By CASEY NEILL

The trek of the track By CASEY NEILL “WE want to make a difference to a group of people whose ancestors helped ours.” So Mark Capper and his wife Julie will travel to Papua New Guinea in September and trek the Kokoda Track. But their journey won’t be the usual pilgrimage many Australians make each year. Mr Capper first completed the trek in 2008, and raised money in honour of a friend who’d passed away. “When I finished that first trek I said I’d never go back there again,” he said. “But something got me inside. I fell in love with the area, the people. “They’ve got nothing and yet they’ll give you everything they can to make sure you’re happy and cared for.” He returned in 2010 with Julie by

his side, but they were airlifted out on their third day. “She talked herself out of being able to do it,” he said. In 2012 they returned and finished the trek, and have wanted to go back ever since. “Many Australians use their trek to raise money for causes back home - all very worthy - but most people forget that the people of the Kokoda Track area also need our help,” Mr Capper said. One in 12 children in Papua New Guinea dies before their fifth birthday. “Kids that survive past the age of five are confronted every day with the daily struggles of living in a third world country and this is even more exaggerated in rural areas,” he said. Mr Capper said the country was rebuilding schools and training teachers, but still lacked basic supplies.

“The kids along the Kokoda Track are direct descendants of the Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels and it is very well-known that our Diggers received much-needed support and comfort from them during the Japanese attacks in 1942,” he said. So the Cappers are taking classroom supplies to distribute to schools along their journey - the Trek 4 Education. The bulk will go to a school in Kagi, the village where most of the porters they’ve travelled with live. “It’s a large school in the centre of four villages,” he said. The Cappers are also donating money to the Kokoda Track Foundation, which awards scholarships and provides classroom supplies. The couple has been hitting the gym and regularly completing hikes in national parks to prepare. “You have to be mentally fit as well as physically fit because you

are isolated for quite a considerable time,” Mr Capper said. “The mountains that we climb, they have what they call false peaks. “You think you’re at the top and you look up and there’s another hour of climbing. “It does drain you.” The Cappers are looking for more people to join them on the journey, as well as donations. “We just want to make a difference,” he said. “We’ve always been the type of people to try and help others.” They’ll hold a fund-raiser, the Factis non Verbis cocktail party, at Dandenong RSL on 3 May. It will feature speakers and guests from the 39th Battalion Association, which served in Kokoda, entertainment, prizes and more. Call Mark on 0481 256 311 or Julie on 0411 530 464 to book a ticket, make a donation or join the trek.

DANDENONG RSL has hosted a morning tea to commemorate 100 years since World War I began. Veteran Affairs Minister, Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Centenary of Anzac and Special Minister of State Michael Ronaldson addressed the 15 April event, alongside City of Greater Dandenong Councillor John Kelly. Organiser Joanna Palastsides enjoyed a cuppa with Dandenong Women’s Group member Winsome Anderson during the morning tea. 117859 Picture: STEWART CHAMBERS

SHARING his Vietnam War experience helps Rob Lowe to deal with the demons that still invade his dreams. The Noble Park Vietnam Veterans Association member has been with the Victorian sub-branch’s Education Team for 15 years. “I am the eastern team leader - we have six teams - and I have four other Vietnam veterans in the team,” he said. “Doing these presentations is the greatest medicine in releasing the demons and talking about your individual experiences.” Mr Lowe said their presentations included videos, photos and stories about their time in Vietnam, and their return home. He volunteered to join the army in April 1967 and was posted to Vietnam for 13 months during 1968 and 1969. Two incidents from his tour remain clear in his mind, the first being the May Offensive of 1968. “The enemy got to within 50 metres of our accommodation at Cholon - a suburb of Saigon,” he said. “The most vivid incident is the day two Viet Cong guerrillas attached high explosives to the side of the bus myself and approximately 55 other Australians where travelling on.” A quick-thinking soldier detached the satchel, but 24 hours later the gravity of the situation hit and Mr Lowe suffered delayed shock. “These are the incidents that continue to trouble me today,” he said. “Waking up in the middle of the night to find the sheets wet from heavy sweating having just had nightmares or tossing and turning remembering Vietnam.” In August 1998 “Vietnam came back to bite me on the bum” and he was admitted to intensive care with severe breathing problems and a serious chest infection. He was no longer able to work. “I suddenly found myself with nothing to do and I struggled to handle the situation,” he said. “I would get up around 10am turn on the television and just lay there all day.” But 12 months later a Vietnam veteran showed up at his door and took him to Noble Park RSL. “At this point in my life things began to change for the better,” he said. Mr Lowe is also involved in the Aussie Veterans Op Shop and is the Royal Australian Army Service Corps (RAASC) Vietnam Association president. “They’re heavily involved in assisting veterans of all wars and conflicts, war widows and the children of veterans in their hour of need,” he said. He said Anzac Day was the day to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice and those who had since passed on. “At the same time it gives the people of Australia the chance to support and say thankyou to those who came home,” he said. “It is also a time when veteran mates gather together for that one day in April to chat, eat, drink a few ales and maybe play two-up.”

PRIDE and tenacity are inextricably linked forever to Dandenong and St Kilda footballer Otto Lowenstern. He died in pursuit of the greater good and it was always important for him to do his part as a loyal Australian - even though he never served as an Anzac soldier. Born in 1888 to Isaac - a general store owner who emigrated from Germany in 1895 - and Edith Angel Lowenstern - who sadly passed away at only 33 Lowenstern was the eldest of the pair’s four children and was a half-sibling to Cyril and Gretchen from Isaac’s second wife Emily Holgate Lowenstern. By the time Otto was 15, the 175cm-tall sports prodigy was ready to make his debut for Dandenong, in both cricket and football, with the earliest recorded match report in this newspaper’s predecessor - The South Bourke and Mornington Journal. Lowenstern’s on-field abilities were matched by off-field interests as he was named secretary of the football club in a vote in 1906, followed up with the captaincy in 1907. Throughout his career, he received numerous plaudits in the Journal for his tenacious attack at the ball and ability to play in all positions. An entertaining account of Lowenstern’s toughness and skill was put forward by “Wombat” in the Burrowings column of 17 June 1908 following a bruising match between Dandenong and Ellendale. “Two Ellendalers went after the scalp of Otto Lowenstern, because he had been so inconsiderate as to best his man every time and were giving him plenty to do when a fellow player lightened the job by projecting an arm like a telegraph pole somewhere into the region of the cue of his attacker’s lamps. Then Otto settled the argument.” “Better for the locals were

Lowenstern” among others was said of the rising-star Lowenstern in the 16 August 1905 Journal and his skills only improved throughout the years as “his ruck work and general play through the game being splendid” were highlighted in the 29 June 1910 edition. His rise through the ranks and into reckoning for Victorian Football League selection started after a stellar year in 1909 where Dandenong Football Club won the local premiership. Lowenstern became honorary secretary pro-tempore in 1910 of the football club and held the position while vying for a place at St Kilda. A Victorian Football League (VFL) debut for the Saints on 3 September 1910 was highlighted by a rare victory for the beleaguered Saints of yesteryear - a 12-point victory at the Junction Oval in the last game of the home-and-away season. Lowenstern’s last recorded football match was a 6.8 (44) to 15.11 (101) loss to Collingwood on 2 September 1911, playing alongside early VFL legends Roy Cazaly and Harry Lever. Lowenstern would kick his one and only VFL goal in that match at the Junction Oval to finish his VFL career with 12 matches and two wins. Pride and honour remained important to Lowenstern even as war drew closer and infringed on a holiday he was undertaking after 28 September 1911 to America and Canada. From his tour of America, including a rough-and-tumble New York sojourn, Lowenstern headed to Vancouver in 1912 and went to war in 1914. Lowenstern wanted to keep up his end as a good Australian and chose to enlist with Lord Strathcona’s Horse (Royal Canadians) and the 72nd Highlanders in Vancouver as World War I loomed. In his last public correspon-

dence recorded in the Journal on 4 April 1912 - Lowenstern winds up his letter with the announcement that he has joined ‘the’72nd Highlanders, so if war breaks out he will be ’doing a bit for his country’. After three years in active service, throughout the Western Front, Sergeant Otto Bernard Lowenstern died on 1 December 1917 - defending Gouzeaucourt six days before his 29th birthday - in a battle between the First Canadian Expeditionary Forces against German Empire. English novelist Rudyard Kipling described the attacks in and around Gouzeaucourt across the last week over November from the British Empire perspective in his compilation of letters and diaries “The Irish Guards in the Great War”. “Over the ridge between Gouzeaucourt and Metz poured gunners, carrying their sights with them, engineers, horses and infantry, all apparently bent on getting into the village where they would be a better target for artillery,” Kipling said. “The village choked; the Battalion fell in, clear of the confusion, where it best could, and set off at once in artillery formation, regardless of the stragglers, into the high and bare lands round Gouzeaucourt.” Once news returned across the oceans early in 1918, the last mentions of Otto Lowenstern in the Journal among other papers were eloquent, tragic and summed up the man as a gentleman among all. He left no family or wife behind and his legacy remains only in tattering books and fleeting VFL records. Lowenstern’s legacy deserves to live on and fans of Dandenong, St Kilda and passionate Australians in general should stop to reflect and admire the men who chose to risk their life to protect the liberties of their beloved country.
