Western Port News 18 April 2017


OUR ANZACS Streets named after Victoria Cross recipients WHILE not a great deal is known about the development of Bittern and Crib Point, it is obvious that the area was subdivided after the First World War. The developers sought to honour those who had served in the war by the names they gave the streets and troads. Many streets in the two towns are named after Victoria Cross recipients, which was done to honour their sacrifice in the “Great War”. The Victoria Cross is the highest military decoration and is awarded for valour “in the face of the enemy” to members of the armed forces of various Commonwealth countries, and previous British Empire territories. It takes precedence over all other orders, decorations and medals. It may be awarded to a person of any rank in any service and to civilians under military command. In the United Kingdom, it is usually presented to the recipient or to their next of kin by the British monarch at an investiture held at Buckingham Palace. In countries other than Britain where the monarch is the head of state, the GovernorGeneral usually presents the medal. The VC was introduced on 29 January 1856 by Queen Victoria to honour acts of valour during the Crimean War. Since then, the medal has been awarded 1358 times to 1355 individuals. Only 15 medals have been awarded since the Second World War. The traditional explanation of the source of the gunmetal from which the medals are struck is that it derives from Russian cannons captured at the siege of Sevastopol. Recent research has thrown doubt on this

BLACKBURN ST

Bittern Lieutenant Arthur Seaforth Blackburn Born 25 November 1892, Woodville, SA On 23 July 1916, at Pozières, France, Blackburn was directed with 50 men to drive the enemy from a strong point. By great determination he captured 250 yards of trench, after personally leading four separate parties of bombers against it, many of whom became casualties. Then after crawling forward with a sergeant to reconnoitre, he returned, attacked again, and seized another 120 yards of trench to establish communications with the battalion on his left.

BUCKLEY ST

Bittern Sergeant Maurice Vincent Buckley Born 13 April 1891, Hawthorn, Vic

story, suggesting a variety of origins for the material from which the medals are made. A single company of jewellers, Hancocks of London, has been responsible for the production of every Victoria Cross awarded since its inception Due to its rarity, the VC is highly prized. Listed on following pages are 21 streets in Bittern and Crib Point named after Victoria Cross winners and a brief biography.

On 18 September 1918, at Le Verguier near St. Quentin, Buckley’s battalion set off behind a creeping barrage and cleared several enemy outposts, two of which fell to Buckley’s Lewis gun. When a field gun held up one company, he rushed towards it, shot the crew and raced under machine gun fire across open ground to put a trench mortar out of action. He then fired into an enemy dug-out and captured 30 Germans. By the end of the day he had rushed at least six machine gun positions, captured a field gun and taken nearly 100 prisoners.

OUR ANZACS BURTON AVE They grow not old As we that are left grow old Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn At the going down of the sun and in the morning WE SHALL REMEMBER THEM!

Bittern Corporal Alexander Burton Born 20 Jan 1893 Kyneton, Vic On 9 August 1915, at Lone Pine, Gallipoli, the enemy made a determined counter-attack on a newly captured trench held by Lieutenant Tubb, Corporals Burton, Dunstan and a few men. They advanced up a trench and blew in a sandbag barricade, but Tubb and the two corporals repulsed the enemy and rebuilt the barricade. Strong enemy bombing parties twice again succeeded in blowing in the barricade, but on each occasion the enemy were repulsed and the barricade rebuilt, although Tubb was wounded and Corporal Burton killed while most gallantly building up the parapet under a hail of bombs. His body was never recovered.

COOKE ST

Bittern Private Thomas Cooke Born 5 July 1881, Marlborough, New Zealand On 24/25 July 1916 at Pozières, France. For most conspicuous bravery. After a Lewis gun had been disabled, he was ordered to take his gun and gunteam to a dangerous part of the line. Here he did fine work, but came under very heavy fire, with the result that finally he was the only man left. He still stuck to his post and continued to fire his gun. When assistance was sent he was found dead beside his gun. He set a splendid example of determination and devotion to duty.

We pride ourselves on quality service!

Born 6 April 1885 , Collingwood, VIC On 3 September 1915, near Maktau, Kenya, during a mounted infantry engagement, the enemy were so close that it was impossible to get the more severely wounded away. Lieutenant Dartnell, who was himself being carried away wounded in the leg, seeing the situation, and knowing that the enemy’s black troops murdered the wounded, insisted on being left behind, in the hope of being able to save the lives of other wounded men. He gave his own life in a gallant attempt to save others.

Born 24 January, 1896, Orange, NSW On 9 August, during a heavy bomb attack by the enemy on the newly captured position at Lone Pine, Private Hamilton, with utter disregard of personal safety, exposed himself under heavy fire on the parados [rear side of a trench] in order to secure a better firing position against the enemy’s bomb-throwers. His coolness and daring example had an immediate effect. The defence was encouraged and the enemy driven off with heavy loss.

OUR ANZACS HOWELL ST

Crib Point Corporal George Julian Howell Born 19 November 1893, Enfield, NSW On 6 May 1917 at Bullecourt, Germans launched a general counter-attack using flame-throwers causing the 3rd Brigade to withdraw from its trenches. Howell notified battalion headquarters that the battalion to his right was retiring. The 1st Battalion commander then hurriedly organised a group to resist the enemy assault and a fierce bombing fight ensued. Howell, fearing that the enemy would outflank his battalion, climbed on to the top of the parapet and bombed the enemy, forcing them back along the trench. When his bombs ran out Howell continued to pursue the enemy with his bayonet but as he was exposed to heavy bomb and rifle fire it was not long before he was severely wounded.

Crib Point Private Joergen Christian Jensen Born 15 January 1891, Loegstoer, Denmark On 2 April 1917 at Noreuil, France, Private Jensen, with five comrades, attacked a barricade behind which were about 45 of the enemy and a machine-gun. One of the party shot the gunner and Private Jensen rushed the post and threw in a bomb. Then, with a bomb in each hand, he threatened the rest and made them surrender. He sent one of his prisoners to another group of the enemy, ordering them to surrender, which they did, but our troops began firing on them, where-upon Private Jensen, regardless of danger stood on the barricade waving his helmet, and the firing stopped. He then sent his prisoners back to our lines.

Thanks for those who served set in stone A NEW memorial will be unveiled during Tuesday’s Anzac service at Balnarring. The memorial comes four years after Commander Matt Keogh, left, discovered that there was no official place set aside to honour the more than 35 people from Balnarring and district who “were sent to fight for the Australian Imperial Forces (AIF) in World War I - seven never returned”. “The only acknowledgement of their sacrifices is a list of names on honour boards located in the Balnarring hall and in St Marks Church,” Commander Keogh said. “I felt that they, and those who followed them in subsequent conflicts and in peace-keeping operations, deserved a memorial honouring their service to this country.” Commander Keogh, who has been in the Royal Australian Navy for 28 years and has lived in Balnarring with his wife and two children for the past 15 years after being posted to HMAS Cerberus, organised an Anzac Day service in 2015. More than 200 people attended that first service, a number that grew to 300 the following year. He said the increasing numbers “reflected the respect that we as Australians have for the men and women of the Australian Defence Force - both past and present”. Convinced the town needed a memorial Commander Keogh approached Mornington Peninsula Shire and was told while it could not help financially it would provide advice and assistance in the planning and approval of a memorial stone. The Balnarring and District Community Bank stepped in with the money and the stone was donated by Terry Mulcahy, in memory of his late brother Neil. “At the Anzac Day service this year the Balnarring and District Memorial Stone will be unveiled and the community will have a permanent landmark on which to reflect and remember the people who served and died for their country, their family and their mates,” Commander Keogh said.

NEWS DESK

Shire staff reject CEO’s work offer Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au STAFF at Mornington Peninsula Shire will stay on their existing enterprise agreement after knocking back an agreement put forward by CEO Carl Cowie. The 803 eligible members of general staff voted 330-227 against the shire’s offer when the ballot closed, 5pm, Tuesday 4 April; 256 aged and disability services staff voted 124-62 against; 163 sport and leisure staff voted 45-22 against, while the shire’s 42 nurses voted 20-6 in favour. Many staff in the four departments abstained from voting. Mr Cowie said in a statement to staff: “The nurses’ agreement has been supported by staff and will proceed to ratification with the Fair Work Commission. “The general staff, aged and disability services and sport and leisure agreements were not supported. In this case the previous enterprise agreement remains in place until the negotiations result in a successful ballot.” ASU branch executive president Michelle Jackson said results of the ballots were “fantastic”. “We argued for a No vote and they were all voted down,” she said, adding that the union acts for general staff, aged and disability services and sport and leisure, but does not represent the nurses. “I have contacted the CEO Carl Cowie to see when he is available to sit down and talk with us. “I want to make sure he is aware of the main issue: the removal of sick leave provisions – that’s the main sticking point.”

$

Ms Jackson said in February that “unfair changes to sick leave entitlements had upset the hardworking staff at the council”. (“Unfair, underhanded offer” The News, 13/2/2017.) “Staff are outraged that sick leave that has been used to support staff – many of whom are also members of the community – through life-threatening illnesses such as cancer, is being slashed,” Ms Jackson said in a statement. The union representative said the shire had been offering staff a 6.8 per cent pay rise over three years but was cutting sick leave and penalty rates in the now voted-down agreement. “The CEO is splashing around $1 million in sign-on bonuses to get the staff to vote yes to a substandard agreement,” she said. Last week, Ms Jackson said another sticking point had been the shire’s insistence that it have the right to force staff to take annual leave when shutting down a facility, say for renovations. “The staff have shown they want greater protection, in the light of the CEO saying he wants to contract out sport and leisure and aged and disability services,” she said. Ms Jackson said staff had “reacted very strongly against” a one-off $1000 bonus offered by Mr Cowie to permanent council employees, and $300 to casuals, to back the council’s stance. “We were told that to get the $300 a casual staff member need only have worked one shift in six months, so they would have had little engagement with the shire and it would have been easy for them to accept it,” she said. Non-nursing staff will stay on their existing EBA, which expired on 31 December, until any new agreement is ratified.

Parklands heeds the call RESIDENTS of Peninsula Parklands, Hastings are preparing to commemorate Anzac Day even though age may be wearying some of them. There are 340 residents at the High St retirement village and last year some of them found it physically hard to attend the town’s official Anzac

Day march and ceremonies. This year they will be at a ceremony in their own community hall, which is also being used to exhibit a display of wartime memorabilia, including medals and a set of World War I cavalry spurs worn by a soldier from Somerville.

Background music from the wartime era will help set the scene along with “original recipe” Anzac biscuits served with tea and coffee. A “Sunrise at Gallipoli” painting by Parklands’ resident artist Terry Avion will be auctioned to raise money for Hastings RSL’s welfare fund.

Cruel end for ‘puppies’ of the sea Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au A CAMPAIGN has been launched to stop the mostly hidden killing and maiming of a group of fish known as smooth rays. The rays are rarely sought after for food but are often killed so they won’t waste a second bait or out of fear, in the case of stingrays. Although the rays will only attack if provoked, scuba diver PT Hirschfield says the level of fear has risen noticeably since Australian wildlife expert Steve Irwin died in 2006 after being pierced in the chest by a stingray barb while filming for the documentary, Ocean's Deadliest. Hirschfield likens the subsequent backlash against stingrays to the heightened fear of sharks caused by Steven Speilberg’s 1975 thriller, Jaws. She dives almost daily and has become increasingly horrified and saddened by the numbers of dead smooth rays littering the seabed around piers on the Mornington Peninsula and the rest of Port Phillip. “The huge smooth rays I dive with are gentle, curious puppies.” Hirschfield wants rays to be protected near piers “as they are rarely the intended catch of fishers”. “People seem to have a real dread of stingrays and seem to assume they will attack. They don’t really understand that they can become tame and are easily caught.” Hirschfield blames anglers for most of the ray carcasses near “because they don’t want to catch them twice”.

A closed Facebook group using the name Project Banjo Action Group has about 300 followers dedicated to raising awareness of the needless cruelty being dealt to rays, which include fiddler rays or banjo sharks. Hirschfield discovered one of the most callous instances of cruelty under Rye pier where a 250-300 kilogram ray had been dumped after having its wings and tail hacked off. She believes the meat may have been kept as shark bait “which would be against Fisheries Victoria Regulations”. “The rays at peninsula piers are iconic and much loved by locals, tourists, divers, snorkelers and fishers alike. An image of me with the remains of the ray at Rye has begun to circulate and cause much outrage in social media,” Hirschfield said. “The Project Banjo Action Group is campaigning for greater education about rays on the peninsula to combat the Irwin Effect, as well as better compliance with Fisheries regulations. “Like timid, reclusive blue ringed octopuses that have only ever been responsible for three fatalities in history, stingrays have been much maligned and have become the victims of global smear and fear campaigns and unjustified knee-jerk reactions. “Ignorant fishermen frequently cut off their barbs and tails, throwing the mutilated animals back into the ocean or killing them without justification – what utterly cruel, irresponsible and senseless abuse of these gorgeous, essentially harmless creatures.

Ray ban: Keen scuba diver P T Hirschfield wants the state government to ban the catching of smooth rays, including sting rays, near piers and jetties in Port Phillip. She says this ray was probably dumped under Rye pier after having its wings cut off for bait.

THIS sting ray, a regular visitor to the boat launching ramp at Mornington, was so tame that it came into shallow water to retrieve scraps thrown by anglers. The ray was popular with onlookers until being eventually killed by an unknown person. Picture: Keith Platt

Campaign to save the rays Continued from Page 7 “The reality is that stingrays do not prey on humans in any way, instead preying on smaller marine creatures.” Hirschfield says regulations allow for a bag limit of five rays of one or more species. However, the same regulations also state that it is an offence to fail to return [unwanted] fish to water without injury or damage. “Fisheries Victoria advises that fishers are to ‘dispatch fish you intend to keep immediately’. It is unacceptable common practice that the tails, barbs and wings of various species of sharks and rays - including fiddler rays and huge smooth rays - are often hacked off while the animal is still alive.” Hirschfield said the group wanted to increase “awareness and appreciation of” rays throughout the fishing and non-fishing community; and increase the understanding and compliance with regulations and best practice “as

an integral part of the licensing process”. More signs about regulations, best practice and penalties were needed on the fishing end of piers. Hirschfield stresses Project Banjo Action Group “is not a vigilante group”. “The success of this campaign is dependent on operating from a position of respect for all parties involved. Showing disrespect for those with opposing views and behaviours may inflame the situation rather than resolve it.” Details of any offences can be reported to Fisheries on 133474.  Environment group BERG Mt Martha has organised a free talk by P T Hirschfield 10am Saturday 20 May at Mt Martha House, 466 Esplanade.

Western Port News 18 April 2017

IT IS the great mysterious love story of estuaries and creeks across the Mornington Peninsula that has its beginning and end 4000 kilometres away in the Coral Sea. Short-finned eels (Anguilla australis) live in or around the waterways for 10 to 20 years, maybe longer, growing up to one metre long and as thick as a man’s arm. Nobody seems to know how often, but around the full moon on an Easter tide they burst out of the estuary in their thousands to return to the Coral Sea to mate and die. And the cycle starts all over again. According to research compiled by BERG Mt Martha, the eels are probably born in or near the deep water of the Coral Sea, north of New Caledonia. Larva, called leptocephalus and looking like a small willow leaf, drift with the currents towards Australia and over the continental shelf. A metamorphosis happens - the leaves take on the shape of eels, but are transparent – glass eels. Pigment is confined to their backbone and eyes. The glass eels continue to ride the currents along the coast, but they don’t feed. When they smell fresh water, they head into rivers and creeks. Some end up in Port Phillip and head to Balcombe Estuary at Mt Martha and Tanti Creek, Mornington. Before going upstream, they undergo another transformation. Glass eels become pigmented elvers, at the same time shrinking in size and developing a digestive tract.

Some go upstream, finding their way into ponds, dams and drains. They can climb waterfalls and dam walls and slither over wet grass into dams. Generally these become females and remain in the habitat for 10 to 20 years. Those that stay in the lower reaches of the creek tend to be males. When the dams overflow, usually in spring, the mature females migrate downstream to join males in the estuary. They spend some months adapting to the higher salinity before leaving the coast. Typically, the mature males leave Balcombe Creek when the first stormy weather breaches the sandbar at the mouth of the creek. The females leave soon after. By the time they leave, they have undergone another metamorphis: their digestive organs have shrivelled as they have stopped feeding. And their eyes have enlarged to enable them to see deep below the ocean’s surface. They will depend on their oil reserves for the long journey to their mating grounds. Although never tracked, it is deduced that the mature eels, helped by sea currents and swimming at depth, return to their birthplace, about 4000km away. “We don’t know how often the migration occurs, yearly or every two or three years,” John Inchley of BERG said. “Two years ago, one of our members took a video on her phone of the eels bursting out of the estuary to start their epic journey. “So it may be this year again, or next year. We don’t know what the cycle is.”

SIGNS at Mornington Peninsula National Park outline the plight of the hooded plover.

Dog ban ‘helps plovers’

Coming of age: Ageing short-finned eels in creeks and dams across the Mornington Peninsula are readying themselves for the final journey of their lives to their breeding grounds in the Coral Sea. Picture: Yanni

THE state government says banning dogs from the coastal Mornington Peninsula National Park has already proved its worth in protecting the endangered hooded plover. Parks Victoria says eight chicks survived the most recent breeding season compared with one two seasons ago. The controversial dog ban was put in place along the 42 kilometre coastline in November 2016 to protect the hooded plover and its habitat. Banning dogs has also enabled Parks Victoria to extend fox control programs to help protect the 32 other fauna species of conservation significance that also inhabit the park. Parks Victoria is undertaking regular targeted patrols to ensure people continue to obey the ban. “Our dog ban is protecting the hooded plover and benefitting all wildlife in the national park.” Energy, Environment and Climate Change Minister Lily D’Ambrosio said. MP for Eastern Victoria Daniel Mulino said a “few people” had been caught disobeying the dog ban over summer although “most … are doing the right thing - which is helping us protect the Peninsula."

Building permits top $1 billion in 2016 THE value of building permits issued on the Mornington Peninsula last year was up more than 40 per cent up on the previous year. Data released by the Victorian Building Authority shows the value of permits was $1.08 billion – well up on 2015’s $769.2 million. It showed the value of building permits issued in the state was a record $32 billion – up 7.6 per cent on 2015. The shire recorded growth in the value of all building use categories other than Industrial, which fell despite an increase in the number of permits for the category compared with 2015. The peninsula was one of 12 Victorian municipalities where building permits valued at more than $1 billion were issued last year. “The VBA data shows there was strong growth in the value of building permits for dwellings on the peninsula, with domestic (housing) rising 17.8 per cent over the previous year and residential (which includes apartments) surging 2196.2 per cent,” VBA chief executive Prue Digby said. Four of the top five building permits by value reported in the shire during 2016 were for the residential building use category. One was for buildings at Cape Schanck valued at $128 million. The others were for a winery, hotel and function area at Merricks North, $22.4m; an aged care building and car park at Mornington, $13.5m; 34 apartments, shops, restaurants and basement car park at Rosebud, $12.9m, and an apartment/carpark and retail/office development to complete a project at Mornington, $10.9m.

Charges over hit run A HASTINGS man will be charged with failing

to stop and render assistance after his car collided with a pedestrian in Coolstore Rd, Hastings 6.55pm, Monday. Sergeant Peter Martin, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said the man, 30, claimed he swerved to avoid a dog just before the incident. The victim, 23, of Langwarrin, suffered life threatening injuries when he was struck, just east of Wallace Drive. He was flown to The Alfred hospital with life-threatening injuries and was in a critical condition on Tuesday. The driver attended Hastings police station soon afterwards and alerted police. Investigators were at the scene on Tuesday morning to determine the circumstances leading up to the collision.

Boat repair: Keith Gledhill and Derek Davies with the boat that is being restored as a project by Mt Eliza Men’s Shed.

Shed men fixing a boat MESSING around with boats has taken on a whole new meaning for members of Mt Eliza Men’s Shed who are about to restore a boat donated by the 4th Mordialloc Sea Scout Group. The goal is to “restore this boat into a piece of treasure”, shed member Don Reeves said. The Mt Eliza Men’s Shed is inviting men who “share a passion in boating” to be involved in the restoration. Mr Reeves said shed members were working with two Monash University occupational ther-

apy students on a project to help connect men from Mt Eliza to engage in a variety of projects “They are hoping to promote awareness of the benefits of this men’s shed and its importance on men’s health and well-being,” he said. Activities at the shed include woodwork, toy making and community-related projects. The shed is in the grounds of the Mt Eliza Country Club, 32 Old Mornington Rd, Mt Eliza. Boat restoration sessions will be held 9.30am– 12.30pm Thursdays.

Protect the Green Wedge, it also has a heritage We applaud the plan to open Cruden Farm, Langwarrin up for community use in accordance with the late and sincerely lamented Dame Elisabeth Murdoch’s wishes. However, we do not favour the idea of subdividing off 15.8 hectares of the land for residential development. This land would need to be excised from the Green Wedge and would set a precedent for more such proposals involving the carving up of green wedges for good causes (“Cruden Farm homes bid” The News 11/4/17). You can just see many other landowners lining up for the same sort of treatment. There is precious little Green Wedge land remaining; we can’t afford to lose more. Last month, the Minister for Planning [Richard Wynne] released Plan Melbourne 2017-2050, that contains the following commitment: “Maintain a permanent urban growth boundary around Melbourne to create a more consolidated, sustainable city.” It would be very difficult for the minister to approve the rezoning of Cruden Farm and the movement of the urban growth boundary before the ink is even dry on the new plan. We suggest that the land proposed for subdivision could still be sold for an appropriate Green Wedge use, such as farming or recreation, without threatening the future of this and other Green Wedges. Trevor Shewan, president, Defenders of the South East Green Wedge

Show us the money Despite [Nepean MP] Martin Dixon MP retiring at the next state election, he certainly has not stopped practising populist politics, by once again calling for the construction of a World

class aquatic centre for the southern Peninsula area (“Pool the effort” Letters 11/4/17). Mr Dixon has been the local member for every single day since Mornington Peninsula Shire’s pool policy was released around 2000. Throughout this period and to his credit, he has consistently championed the construction of an aquatic centre at Rosebud. However, not once did he support his commitment with an absolute pledge from the state government to contribute financially to the project’s cost. Given that the Labor party held power for the bulk of the past 17 years and with Nepean not being considered a marginal seat, you can understand why it would not commit financially. However, Mr Dixon’s party did hold power for four years and he was a senior minister in that government. So why no funding commitment then? The shire is burdened with rate capping to limit its revenue raising opportunities and has both rising demand and cost of service delivery. Then we have a politician advocating a potentially $50 million project to build and a further $2 million a year to operate (plus interest on the loan needed to pay for it) without any state government funding support. Little wonder we can’t take politicians seriously. Ian Bennett, Fingal

Pool’s ‘wide’ support Mornington Peninsula Shire resolved to not locate the SPA (Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre) adjacent to Rosebud Memorial Hall.

needed because of the council decision, but consent was still in place. In response, the council resolved to ask the government to remove the coastal consent, which was done. Naturally, the Rosebud structure plan was amended to reflect the council decisions. The action group is not a few towel waving supporters. It has support and representation from swimming clubs, community groups, local schools, lifesaving clubs, sport clubs and many individuals. Esther Revens, Capel Sound

Pool’s public demand A survey by Mornington Peninsula Shire, showed the Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre is a high priority for all ratepayers and residents on the southern peninsula - not by a little band of “bath towel and swimming cap wearers” (“Public, private pool” Letters 4/4/17). The state government requires primary school children to learn to swim and, with enrolment of southern peninsula schools growing dramatically, the Colchester Rd pool cannot cope. I am one of the so called “minority” of people who love to swim in “watered down chlorine” and presented Mornington Peninsula Shire with a 125-signature petition of regular water aerobic and attendees doing two and three classes a week in March 2015 and in November 2013. It was agreed by council that a feasibility report be done within two months to investigate and renovate Colchester Rd and deemed from this report that Colchester Rd site was unsuitable. Small-minded people and some councillors must take their heads out of the sand and realise that we are no longer a small regional town but an expanding outer suburb and this project would provide jobs in an area of high unemployment. Some councillors and anti-SPA objectors must stop politicising about where the centre be built and focus on when it can be completed for residents and tourists and stop wasting any more time and money trying to push aside what is long overdue. Denise Brown, Capel Sound

Farsighted Hastings The Mornington Peninsula Shire wants to raise the rent of the Hastings Club from $4000 to $42,234 a year with further rises totalling $10,000. The council wants this money because it manages the Crown Land and own the building that sits on it in Hastings park (“Rent rise tied to pokies” The News 11/4/17). The shire has not contributed one cent towards this building which was built by footballers and cricketers and members of Hastings in the early 1970s. Since then it has been renovated and extended into the club that we see today without any help from the council. In other words, Hastings has built up this nice healthy asset for the shire free of charge and now it wants to raise the rent. Is that its way of saying thank you? The Hastings club was the first club to receive a full liquor licence in 1974. Other clubs have followed and have all prospered because of Hastings’ efforts. I am not against some sort of rent increase, but if the rent is based on what the land and building are worth at Hastings, then how much is the land worth where Mornington or Sorrento football clubs play? Council has built a new Mornington tennis club with clay courts that is run by full time managers, how much rent do they pay? It has built or is building facilities at Red Hill, Balnarring and Somerville; Crib Point recently had a big renovation. What rent do these clubs pay? Why have no other clubs had the fortitude to get of their backsides and improve their situations. As there are no pubs in Tyabb or Crib Point these clubs could of had thriving businesses if they had a bit of forward thinking. Kevin Miles, Hastings

The perfect place for the council to set outdoor seating for old jokers to rest & an occasional smoko. And coffee? Cliff Ellen, Rye for their enjoyment and recreation�. I have said no such thing. Never. Not verbal, written, or implied. I had never heard of Edmund Burke until now. He also advises me, strangely, to go and live somewhere else if I don’t like it here. At least he appears to agree that the best option for Mornington pier during violent storms is to have no wave barriers at all. Let the sea flow. I did vehemently oppose the marina proposal seven or eight years ago which would have destroyed our beaches and amenities for ugly

money. In case Mr. Burke is confusing me with somebody else, I love the sea, having learned to swim before I could walk, thanks to Mum, a long time ago at another bayside beach. I once owned a 23 foot trailer-sailer and often launched it at Mornington boat ramp. My three young children learned to sail on this boat; some of my friends learned terror in bad weather. I’ve dropped anchor in Mornington town and the wind has gone out of my sails, so I’m here to stay. Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Bollard brings back memories ONE of the wooden bollards removed to make way for a new seawall at Sorrento is now the centrepiece of a household garden. The latest wall is the fourth for the town’s beach and replaced one which was overseen by civil engineer, Colin Cowling. His wife Beth, hearing about the replacement of the wall built in 1990 by her late husband asked if she could have one of the bollards. Mornington Peninsula Shire gave the bollard to Ms Cowling, which now has pride of place in her front yard. A Sorrento resident for the past 18 years, she

said her husband was responsible for building many concrete and timber structures. “Colin had a great sense of humour. When building the third Sorrento seawall inquisitive passers by who saw a row of piles running parallel to the old wall would ask what he was doing, and he would say cattle were being shipped over to Queenscliff and this was the cattle race to the ferry,� Ms Cowling said. The latest seawall - a joint project between shire and the state government - has coloured concrete steps which can be used for seating.

Signs out for roadside tree FOR some years an anonymous person has been attaching signs to a tree bordering an unmade road in Mt Martha. The signs had become a fixture and an amusing roadside attraction. Sometimes signs came and went and new ones, or versions of the old ones, would then appear. No one was offended and parents and grandparents could use the signs to explain their

meanings, and warnings, to young ones. Last week Mornington Peninsula Shire erected two new white plastic poles either side of the narrow, bumpy road. It was probably a sensible move to prevent motorists driving off the road, but the same person who put up the safety poles also removed the signs from the tree. The bare tree remains a sad symbol of the intolerance of the nanny state.

Ear, ear: Poets’ Corner organisers Heather Forbes McKeon, Ian Coffey and Heather Mc aim to attract literary buffs to their regular Sunday readings. Picture: Yanni

Drama and music meet in poetry POETRY readings are sure to attract literary buffs to a McCrae cafe. Poets’ Corner organisers Heather Forbes McKeon, a former head of drama at Frankston High School, and Ian Coffey, a former literature teacher at Padua, say verse and fellowship will be on offer at the readings at Blue Bay Cafe, McCrae, on the last Sunday of the month. “Verse has been the vehicle for human experience for centuries,” Ms Forbes McKeon said. “People have expressed their elation, mirth, grief, pain, insight, bewilderment, wonder and anger in poetry through the ages and our world is richer for it.” Poet’s Corner aims to encourage anyone who is involved to write, read, perform or to listen to poetry.

“We are sure there is a wealth of poetic interest and talent on the peninsula,” she said. “By providing a platform for poets we want to promote and celebrate the joy, wisdom and passion that poetry can bring to life,” Ms Forbes McKeon said. Blue Bay Cafe is on the corner of Point Nepean and Beverley roads, McCrae. Readings will be held 6.30-8pm on the last Sunday of every month beginning Sunday 30 April. The $26 a person entry includes a set menu of main and dessert. The cafe is licensed. Poets can email their full name and poem titles to poetscornergathering@gmail.com. A maximum of three minutes is allowed for each poem. Bookings: 5982 0295.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Thirteen dinner knives missing after French soldiers visit Compiled by Cameron McCullough IT is a regretable fact that thirteen dinner knives, which had been lent for the occasion, mysteriously disappeared while the entertainment of French soldiers, was in progress, on Sunday, last. Two songs “My little Gray Home in the West” and “Coming Home” are also missing. This kind of thing is contemptible in the extreme and will be well guarded against on future occasions. *** The report of the Mornington Shire Council’s last meeting will appear in our next issue. *** The Church of England Floral Fete will be opened at 3 30.p.m, on Friday next, in the Mechanics’ Hall. *** The Australian Club will hold a dance in the Frankston Hall this evening, the proceeds to go towards the wounded soldiers’ fund. *** The “Wattle” Club will hold a dance in the Mechanic’ Hall on Monday, evening next. A good supper and good music will be provided. *** The Secretary of the Frankston Junior Football Club begs to acknowledge with thanks subscriptions from the residents of Frankston towards the funds of the club. *** Messrs Brody and Mason will sell by auction today, on the property near the Mile Bridge, on account of Mr E. Kitson, the contents of a seven roomed villa residence. Large iron stable, buggy sheds etc, for removal. The sale will

commence at one o’clock punctually. *** Lance Corporal M’Cartney, after being in charge of the military police in Frankston for the last seven months, took his departure for Melbourne this week, where he will be stationed for the present. He has been promoted to the position of Corporal. *** We are pleased to note that Mr Tasker, assistant station master at Frankston, has returned home from hospital, where he has been for the last three or four weeks and underwent two severe operations. He is a slowly recovering. *** In our report of the Australian Club dance last week, in giving a description of the dresses, an error occurred. It should have read: Mr Andrews, Servis; Mrs Andrews, Russia; Mr W. Andrews. French officer; Miss W. Andrews, Belgium; Miss A. Andrews, fairy. *** Messrs Alex Scott and Co Pty, Ltd will hold an unreserved clearing sale at Flinders on Saturday next 28th inst on account of Mr N. Hopcraft, whose lease has expired, of horses, cattle, pigs, sheep, poultry, farm implements, vehicles and farm sundries. The sale will take place at the property, on Musk Creek road three miles from Flinders, at 1.30 sharp. *** It was decided at a “Wattle” Club committee meeting, held on Monday evening, to hold fortnightly entertainments during the winter months. As large troopships of soldiers are

being returned regularly now it is very evident that soldiers’ entertainments will be frequent in Frankston, and it is hoped by these fortnightly dances to make sufficient money to carry on the work. *** A meeting of members of the Frankston Branch of the National Federation will be held at the Mechanics’ Institute on Monday evening at 8 o’clock. It is particularly requested that all those interested in the return of the National Candidates (whether members or not) should attend. As there are a number of important details relative to election matters to be discussed and correspondence from the head office dealt with every member should not fail to put in an appearance. *** An exceedingly pretty and interesting wedding took place on Wednesday, April 11th, in St Francis’ Church, Frankston. It was a typical and ideal Australian day, and all nature seemed to glow and smile on the occasion of this union linking together Ireland and Australia. The contracting parties were Miss Agnes Mary Spillane, eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs J. Spillane, Port Magee, County Kerry, Ireland, and Lieut. V. L. Hyndes, son of Mr and Mrs M. P. Hyndes, Church Hill, Goulburn, New South Wales. The wedding had more than ordinary interest attached as the bride groom is a Gallipoli hero, who, on account of his severe wounds has been returned, and the bride being a general favorite with all classes in Frankston and who, since

coming from Ireland some ten months ago to reside with her aunt, Mrs Moloney, of the Pier Hotel, has worked in every movement for the benefit of the town. In patriotic work Miss Spillane was always foremost and in no small degree has helped in this cause. In the absence of the parents of Miss Spillane, Mrs Maloney undertook the arrangements of the wedding which were carried out in perfect order and only as Mrs Moloney can see things through once she takes them in hand. This lady has proved, her capabilities on more than one occasion, and the large number of guests who were invited, found nothing wanting. The bride, who is uncommonly beautiful was taken to the alter by her cousin, Mr Fitzpatrick, and presented a charming picture in her bridal gown of white crepe de chene and lace, with court train, and the customary wreath and veil. A beautiful string of pearls also worn and an exquisite bridal bouquet composed of orchids and azaleas, completed the pretty picture. Miss Fitzpatrick, cousin of the bride, and Miss Nerrina Day acted as bridesmaids,’ the former wearing a very pretty and, becoming frock of shell pink crepe de chene, with black velvet hat, lined with the same pretty shade of pink. The latter wore a frock of white muslin and lace and a wreath of small pink roses on her head. Their bouquets were composed of pink carnations and azaleas with streamers of white and green, the colors of the bridegroom’s battalion, they

also wore pearl pins the gifts of the bridegroom. The church had been previously decorated by friends of the bride, no pains being spared to have it looking its very best. The officiating clergyman was the Rev. Father Gibbons assisted by the Rev. Fathers Rowan, Gallagher, O’Sullivan, and Flannery. Miss M’Hugh played the wedding march as the party left the church. Mrs Moloney was dressed in a handsome creation of black crepe de chene and ninon, relieved with shades of pink oriental trimming and hat to match. She carried a bouquet of autumn colored dahlias and leaves. Mrs Hyndes, mother of the bridegroom, wore a gown of black silk relieved with white, and hat to match. She also carried a bouquet of dahlias and autumn leaves. The bridegroom, who was in uniform was supported by Gunner Maxwell Brown, also a returned soldier. The wedding reception and breakfast were held at the Pier Hotel where between fifty and sixty guests partook of a feast second to none, and compliments and congratulations made everything bright and pleasant. It was noticed that six soldiers who had fought and had returned to Frankston, were present to wish their fortunate comrade “good luck.” The happy couple left by car, later, en route for the Blue Mountains, where the honeymoon is to be spent. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 21 April 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Rental as anything - tale of a phantom X-Trail By Stuart McCullough I BRING these things upon myself. I tempt fate by rolling my trouser leg up just beyond the knee until fate can no longer help itself, giving in and smoting me right between the eyes. A run of bad luck is one thing. It’s another thing entirely to be eviscerated by the fate’s fickle finger. But that’s how I’d describe my afternoon back about three weeks ago. And to think, all I was trying to do was pick up a hire car. It began with a trip across town. This, it seems, is something that is becoming increasingly difficult. Indeed, there are plenty of times the idea of visiting Mars in a home-made rocket ship seems eminently more achievable than getting to Northcote via Punt Road. Surely, the day is not too far off when all traffic finally grinds to a standstill and gridlock sets like concrete. For me, I had to get from Footscray to Ormond. My first mistake was to use an automobile instead of, say, the train or dolphin skis. The fact that the Grand Prix was about to occur meant extra road closures and an added degree of complexity. It was hot. Rain was forecast and, as I tried to weave my way through the traffic, the air was dense with humidity. In addition to major events, I personally find that strange weather makes for strange traffic. I’m not sure why, but odd things happen when the atmosphere is unsettled. It meant cars were travelling at a snail’s pace. I know this for a fact because half way along Queen’s Parade a particularly agile gastropod

mollusc overtook me with a ‘Magic Happens’ bumper sticker on its shell. Sadly, there was nothing very magical about my trip home. It took an entire hour. Somewhere during this journey, it’s possible that my soul left my body because by the time I pulled into the driveway, I felt physically and emotionally depleted. But rather than wallow in my extraordinarily well-developed sense of self-pity, I raced inside to get changed. That’s because I had exactly twenty minutes to walk to the car rental place before it closed for the evening, potentially throwing my plans into disarray. Having quickly ditched my suit, I pulled on a pair of jeans and a shirt and began the two-kilometre trek towards the rental office. Given time was of the essence, my legs moved like pistons. I’d go so far as to describe it as a ‘power-walk’ but strictly in the South Australian sense whereby the supply was intermittent and I had to stop for breaks along the way.

The humid conditions meant that I quickly looked like a wet sponge just as it’s being wrung out. But the clock was against me as I realised for the first time that I might be late. So long as it didn’t start raining, I assured myself, things would be fine. About half way along, I upped the pace. I even started to jog a little. It was at that moment that a bus appeared over the horizon. All I had to do was get to the next bus stop and I’d be saved. Running with the speed and grace of a gazelle if the gazelle in question was wearing jeans and size eleven sneakers, I made the stop just in time for the bus to pick me up. As I touched on with my myki card, I could see the other passengers were somewhat alarmed by my clearly dishevelled state. It mattered not. All that mattered was that I would get to the car rental place in time. Still puffing and at risk of drowning in a puddle of my own sweat, I arrived with barely two minutes to spare. You could tell it was close

to knock-off time, because the guy whose job it is to stand behind the counter was missing, but there was a bag by the door, ready for its owner to appear and go home for the evening. It was clear that I’d need to let them know I was at reception. I cleared my throat. I banged two bin lids together. Finally, I leaned over the counter and used to public address system. Amidst the resulting feedback, a slightly worried young man appeared. At the outset, he looked confused. I told him that I’d come to collect the car. Oddly, he looked only more confused. He asked for my name. He asked for my phone number. He continued to look like someone who’d been handed an especially complex maths problem at the very moment his calculator was confiscated. As I continued to press, he told me they were expecting me earlier. Just as I began to curse my one-hour trip across town, he revealed that they were expecting me around nine

o’clock and, that when I didn’t arrive, they gave my car to someone else. This, of course, violates the entire point making a booking. He glanced lovingly at his bag by the door, knowing that he was now stuck with trying to solve a problem that would still be here once five o’clock rolled around. He then told me they had no other cars. Having expended all my energy getting there on time, I was now faced with the prospect of walking back home again. No sooner had I stepped outside the office than the heavens decided to pour forth their watery bounty. Within moments, I looked like a wet hamster. Water rushed along the gutter and I was soaked to the bone. At one point, I swear I saw a snail with a ‘Magic Happens’ bumper sticker being washed into a drain. Things, I suppose, could be worse. But not by much. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Stonecats get the chocolates PENINSULA LEAGUE

By Toe Punt FRANKSTON YCW got the chocolates on Good Friday against Mt Eliza and once again stamped themselves as the team to beat in Peninsula Division. Billed as the grand final replay, the Stonecats completely controlled the game for all but five minutes in the second quarter when Mt Eliza kicked three unanswered goals to open up a 19 point break. By the end of the first term, the Redlegs didn’t add to their onslaught while the Stonecats dominated and booted 4.8 to lead by 12 points at the big break. The margin was 12 points at three quarter time before YCW broke the shackles and went on to record a 10.14 (74) to 6.8 (44) victory. The win meant that after two rounds, YCW and Pines are the only two sides with two wins. Only Chelsea and Langwarrin are without at least one win, while six teams have one win and one loss. It shows the evenness of the competition in 2017. The Stonecats went into the match with six of their VFL-listed players, including Lachy Wallace and Matt LaFontaine (Collingwood), Anthony Bruhn and Anthony Barry (Footscray), BJ Credlin (Richmond) and Ryan Santon (Sandringham). On the other side of the ledger, they were missing Christian Ongarello (hamstring), Michael Debenham, Sam

Widdowson, Ricky Morris and David Bodley. Coach Wayne Capp told the RPP Footy Show on Saturday morning that the club expected to see a bit of Wallace, LaFontaine, Bruhn, Santon and Credlin throughout the season. “When the AFL lists are strong, that means the VFL lists are strong too of AFL-listed players, so we might get those five more often than not,” Capp said. “Bundy is a two-time premiership player at Footscray so I doubt we’ll see a lot of him, while (other VFL listed players) Lachy Williams and Jake

Lovett will spend most of the year in the VFL,” Capp said. Mt Eliza went into the match without Grant Goodall, Aaron Dunne, Karl Lombardozzi and Darren Booth, while Shaun Knott dominated in the reserves. Rohan Heasley also went down with a hamstring injury early in the match. Goodall was a massive loss, leaving Lillie and an undersized James Anwyl to do battle with Ash Eames and monster kid Macklin Raine, who stands 203cm and is pushing 120kgs. BJ Credlin carved up Justin Van Unen, keeping him goalless and under a handful of touches. Shane Tennant

was outstanding for the Redlegs but he looked proppy after injuring his knee. In a team full of stars, YCW defender Riley Hodson goes under the radar but the kid is a jet, while Luke Paynter is another emerging star for the Stonecats. Fin Bayne was a standout for the Redlegs and skipper Sam Gill and Jay Neratzoglou were resilient in defence. Langwarrin has kicked just seven goals in two matches after again being restricted to just two goals against Pines on Saturday. The Kangaroos booted 1.5 to Pines’ 2.3 in the opening term before running out of steam and being held to 1.2 in three quarters as Pines ran out 13.20 (98) to 2.7 (19) winners. Aaron Edwards booted five goals and Shane Waterstone three for the Pythons while Lachy Marshall played his best game for his new club. Blake Harkness, Shane Paterson and Sean Herdman were the best of the Kangas. Mornington and Karingal played an entertaining game at Frankston Park, the Doggies getting the job done 14.13 (97) to 11.7 (73). Central Highlands recruit Peter McGettigan booted four goals for the Dogs and Eastern Football League recruit Xavier Barry-Murphy dominated for the second week in a row. Brad Harvey and Joel Miller were also outstanding contributors for the Dogs. Although the Dogs opened up a handsome lead on a number of occa-

sions, the Bulls just never went away. Jake Kelly was clearly the Bulls best with four goals while Duncan Proud and Luke Van Raay showed tremendous leadership. After being put through unwarranted and never seen before grief from Devon Meadows FC (three clearance knock-backs and two meetings with the committee), Steve Mihevc was finally cleared last Monday night and celebrated with a strong performance in his new colours. Seaford had 37 scoring shots against Chelsea on Saturday at Miles Reserves and won 19.18 (132) to 7.8 (50). Tom Shaw booted four goals and a further 10 players contributed on the scoreboard while Kyle Matthews, Nick Shannon and Rourke Fischer shone. Simon Mitchelhill was again Chelsea’s best, while Daly Shannon and Jack Francis were strong performers also. Bonbeach controlled most of the match against Edithvale-Aspendale, winning 10.11 (71) to 6.12 (48). The Sharks led by five points at the first change before extending that lead to 19 at half time and 21 at three quarter time. Trent Dennis-Lane found his rhythm and finished with four goals for the Sharks while Jackson Casey, Owen Hulet and Dylan Jones were again among the best. Brent Bowden, Craig Wray and Timmy Mannix were the best of the Eagles.

Big, bad, bustling Barry kicks the winner NEPEAN LEAGUE By Toe Punt FORMER Sydney Swans premiership captain Barry Hall booted eight goals for Pearcedale in its thrilling five point victory against Frankston Bombers on Saturday. ‘Big, bad, bustling’ Barry lived up to all the hype and excitement, putting the Dales in front after converting a right foot snap with less than a minute left in the match. It was a fitting conclusion to what was a high-quality contest. Pearcedale led for much of the afternoon, thanks largely to the conversion of Hall, who booted his eight goals from just eight kicks. The final score was 18.3 (111) to 15.16 (106). A rightfully jubilant coach Leigh Stewart told the RPP Footy Show on Saturday morning that Hall was well worth the investment. “To be fair, Barry was the difference between the sides,” Stewart said. “What he and Daniel Kerr (former West Coast Eagles star who played for Pearcedale in round one) were able to do was the give the whole group something to really look forward to during a tough pre-season. “The whole list had a spring in their step and the club was and still is buzzing,” Stewart said. An estimated crowd of more than 2500 people turned up to Pearcedale to watch the match, while it is estimated that the club would turn over more than $40,000 for the day. Hall captivated a packed luncheon for more than an hour prior to the match, then stayed around after the game to

take photographs with players, supporters and most importantly, the kids. The cost to have Barry Hall was more than $10,000, however, if you were at Pearcedale Football Club on Good Friday, you would have locked him in for next season immediately. It would be unfair to say the day was all about Hall though. Luke Dalmau, who skippered the Stingrays last season, was exceptional for the Dales, as was Harry Prior, who dominated two Frankston Bombers ruckman, including Ryan Kitchen. Matt Cottrell was a clear winner on the day for the Dales too, as was Daniel Heijden and Laughlin Cowell. Glenn Anderson also added another three goals to his four last week. Alex Harnett against his old side was clearly Frankston’s best, although he

wasn’t listed in the team’s best. If the loss against a side that didn’t make the five last year was bad enough for Frankston, in worst news coach Beau Muston left the field after injuring his knee. He will have scans this week to assess the full damage. In the traditional Easter Saturday clash, a full house watched as Sorrento wore down and eventually smashed Dromana by almost 10 goals, 18.22 (130) to 10.14 (74). While the day belonged to the Sharks, the story was all about Dromana. The Tigers have been hammered by two teams expected to go deep into the finals by 10 goals (Frankston in round one). Sam Fowler was the only Dromana forward who looked dangerous and he won’t be sited for much of the season

as he’s VFL listed. Beau Cosson didn’t take his place with foot soreness. Billy Quigley too looked lively in attack but it is believed he is heading to the UK to play cricket. Ruckman Rory Gregg was the best of the Tigers, while seasoned campaigners Rikki Johnston and Adam Hunter were also outstanding. Recruit Ryan Smyth restricted the dangerous Leigh Poholke to two goals in three quarters after he kicked three in the first quarter. Daniel Guerts left the field in the first quarter with what appeared to be a serious knee injury. Sorrento’s relentless pressure and disciplined structures just wore down Dromana after an even start to the match. It was the kids that really shone for the Sharks with Shannon Gladman getting best on ground, while Zac Byrns, James Brigden, Danny Stephenson and Chad Harris dominated. Troy Schwarze was at his best and Luke Tapscott and James Hallahan had a heap of it also. Chris Dawes was missing with a hamstring injury but might be a chance against Rye this week, while Tom Langford played in the reserves because it would have pushed their points over the limit. Sorrento coach Nick Jewell said having quality players in the reserves “was a nice problem to have”. “We have players who wanted to come to the footy club and they are all aware of the situation,” Jewell said. “The reality is though that you rarely have your best team on the park consistently, so we don’t see it being a real problem. “Tom Langford missed yesterday but will spend most of his time at Rich-

mond and when Chris (Dawes) is right then we’ll have to make that call. “The club is in a really strong position and we’d rather have a points issue than an injury issue,” he said. It was a bumper day for the Sorrento Football Club, who had 180 people at their luncheon at $90 per head and sold 100 slabs of beer before the end of the match. Hastings booted six goals to one to turn a 10 point deficit into a 26 point victory against Devon Meadows, winning 13.19 (97) to 10.11 (71). Steven Robb was exceptional with three goals and Mark Devereaux was at his best. Despite the win, it was again very unconvincing. They trailed Rye in round one by 37 points halfway through the second quarter and trailed Devon all day on Saturday. Both Rye and Devon are expected to finish in the bottom three – there are some early concerns for the Blues. In the traditional Rosebud v Rye clash, the Buds had 41 scoring shots to Rye’s 11 and won by 100 points, 21.20 (146) to 7.4 (46). Keegan Downie was clearly the best player on the ground with five goals and Greg Bentley was at his very best too. Bad news for Rye was the rib injury to star Adam Kirkwood. On Good Friday, Andres Everitt booted four goals for Somerville and Tim McGenniss and Adrian Speedy dominated in the their 19.17 (131) to 10.6 (66) win against Tyabb. The first quarter was even before the Eagles booted 16 goals to seven after the change. Jordan Pollard was again the best for the Yabbies.

Hine no show, Skye’s English import arrives SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie WHILE Mornington has been forced to call off the Josh Hine deal Skye United was welcoming the arrival of English recruit Jacob Scotte-Hatherly. Skye United officials greeted the 22-year-old midfielder at Melbourne Airport last Wednesday night and are excited about what he could bring to the State 3 South-East side. Scotte-Hatherly’s last club was Bovey Tracey AFC in Division 1 East of the South West Peninsula League and the attacking midfielder from Newton Abbot in South Devon has won two player-of-the-match awards in just nine appearances this season after joining the club in late December. He has also played for Western League Premier Division club Buckland Athletic and has had a four-year stint with the University of Jamestown in North Dakota. While in the US he also played with Wisconsin-based Maddison 56ers and Little Rock Rangers from Arkansas. Skye United followed in the footsteps of Peninsula Strikers and Casey Comets by contacting football agency Soccer Smart Ltd, which holds trials in the UK, Europe and the US for players wanting to play overseas. “We identified a gap in our playing group and we felt that the local market was significantly out of our financial reach to be honest,” said Skye vicepresident Stuart Lawrence. “We’d heard about other clubs using Soccer Smart plus the company targets clubs anyway and sends speculative emails so when we got one of them I flicked it over to Billy (Armour, senior coach) and asked him if we should look at this option so it all started from there.” The video evidence suggests that Scotte-Hatherly has a fine first touch and good passing skills. He also is a set-piece specialist. He is expected to line up alongside Marcus Collier in Saturday’s home fixture against Middle Park. Meanwhile Salford City striker Hine has failed in his bid to be granted a work visa and has also been denied a holiday visa. The Englishman had been courted by Mornington for months and the club had high hopes of him forming a lethal partnership up front with Ryan Paczkowski. “We’re keeping our options open and we’re having a look for players in different places now,” said Mornington head coach Adam Jamieson. “We’ll probably bring in two or three and release two or three.”

Anderson arrives: Scottish midfielder Craig Anderson.

Scottish midfielder Craig Anderson, 28, is firmly on Baxter’s radar after star striker Mark Pagliarulo was contacted by his former coach at Edinburgh City and told that Anderson is already in Melbourne. Whether or not Anderson wants to play at Baxter remains to be seen but his CV suggests that he would be one of the stars of State 4 South if he did sign and clubs in higher leagues are already showing interest. Anderson has played for Montrose, Forfar Athletic, Berwick Rangers, Civil Service Strollers, Stenhousemuir and Craigroyston and has recently finished a second spell with Whitehill Welfare in the Lowland League. Baxter had its sights set on signing former Langwarrin striker Mikey Turner who quit Peninsula Strikers recently. But Baxter lost out to arch rival Rosebud Heart after Turner failed to turn up at Baxter training last Tuesday and scored for Heart in a practice match two days later. “Mikey agreed to join us last week and now it’s just a process of getting Strikers to deregister him so that we can register him before Saturday’s game,” said Heart head coach Scott

Morrison. “He’s going to form a good combination up front with Dave Greening.” Turner had also attracted the interest of Skye United. The match of the round next weekend is the derby showdown between Langwarrin and Casey Comets at Lawton Park on Saturday afternoon. It was confirmed last week that Langwarrin’s English import Kieron Kenny who returned to the UK last month for family reasons is expected back within the next fortnight and Nick Thorogood is also expected to be available within the same timeframe. Kenny’s former central defensive partner at English club Congleton Town, big George Whiteoak, played for Langy in a practice match last Tuesday night against Berwick City and is likely to be on the bench against Comets. “It’s not going to be easy and Jamie (Skelly, Comets gaffer) won’t be coming down here to give away three points because he’s always got something to prove against us,” said Langy head coach Gus Macleod. Skelly is yet to decide whether or not to use both English striker Ryan Hughes and Canadian teammate Al-

lando Matheson in the starting line-up. If he uses both strikers it’s likely that one will play in a wide role but Skelly also has the option of using conventional wingers with just one big man through the middle. The game is a personal challenge for former Langy stars Alex van Heerwarden and Ray Markley and Skelly expects both players to stand up and be counted. “I guess Alex and Ray will have something to prove in that they want to go back and show that as players they have progressed since they’ve been there and it’s a massive incentive for them to do well against a Langy side that sits on top of the league,” said Skelly. Marce Janneker remains sidelined due to an ankle injury. Comets are close to signing a current NPL central midfielder but if they negotiate his release he won’t be available until May. Social media bragging rights are up for grabs when Peninsula Strikers host Doveton in their State 2 South-East clash at Centenary Park on Saturday. Strikers’ boss Craig Lewis and Doveton goalkeeper Stuart Webster are regular sparring partners on Facebook

where the latter is a serial provocateur. Webster played down the recent capture of former Scottish professional Ryan Stevenson saying that the winless Strikers needed more than the former Hearts star to turn their season around. That may come back to haunt the cocky keeper as Stevenson was expected to arrive this week in time to face the Doves. Lewis was enthusiastic about Stevenson’s signing and pointed to the positive impact it already had on the club. “Since the story about Ryan went all over social media and the Scottish media we’ve had players enquiring about joining us including a 21-yearold from Cowdenbeath, another boy from Kirkintilloch Rob Roy and an NPL player,” said Lewis. Teenage midfielder Emmanuel Brima signed for Strikers last week and the former Bentleigh Greens midfielder will come straight into the matchday squad on Saturday. Strikers are also keeping a close eye on any player movement at Mornington. The wait for an international clearance is over for Frankston Pines defender Cedric Permal whose Mauritian club Cercle de Joachim has cleared him in time to face Doncaster Rovers at Monterey Reserve on Saturday. Permal, 25, has been capped 12 times by Mauritius. But Mauritian international teammate Christopher L’Enclume was waiting to be cleared as we went to press. As soon as 26-year-old striker L’Enclume is cleared Pines will focus on bringing over attacking midfielder Fabrice Pithia and striker Dwayne Diamond-Heerah. Two other Mauritian internationals, striker Adrien Botlar and left back or defensive midfielder Damien Balisson are expected in July. This weekend’s games: SATURDAY, 3pm: Mornington v Clifton Hill (Dallas Brooks Park), Langwarrin v Casey Comets (Lawton Park), Peninsula Strikers v Doveton (Centenary Park), Frankston Pines v Doncaster Rovers (Monterey Reserve), Skye Utd v Middle Park (Skye Recreation Reserve), Baxter v Dandenong Sth (Baxter Park), Rosebud Heart v Bayside Argonauts (Truemans Road Recreation Reserve), Chelsea v Somerville Eagles (Edithvale Recreation Reserve).

Ex-Sydney trainer reignites career on Peninsula By Ben Triandafillou SINCE leaving the hustle and bustle of his Randwick training complex in 2014, Grahame Begg has begun to reemerge onto the racing scene with his boutique stable located at Pinecliff, Mt Eliza. Begg earnt his first winning double since returning to racing, at Cranbourne on the 31 March with local jockeys, Jake Noonan and Jamie Mott, guiding Woman in Red and Phoenix Park to victory. The double is a testament to Begg’s horsemanship and although he was unable to attend the meeting, said that it was a step in the right direction. “I was at the Sydney Easter yearling sale purchasing two horses for clients and wasn’t able to make it but I was thrilled when I got the news and for the jockeys to be local boys is a bonus,” Begg said.

“The next step will be to eventually get a winner in town.” Begg’s stable of 12, which consists of mainly unraced thoroughbreds, has been highly successful with their placement of runners, with almost every second runner finishing in the first three. Grahame’s training career spans 25 years with 14 Group One victories from star thoroughbreds such as All Silent, Ilovethiscity and Secret Admirer. Grahame handled some of Australia’s best thoroughbreds, including the 1984 Australian Horse of the Year, Emancipation, when learning the trade from his father, a legendary Hall of Fame trainer, Neville Begg. The tiresome routine and endless loop of what many trainers face became too much for Begg and so he decided to close his Sydney opera-

tions in 2014. “I had just had enough of the day in-day out routine, so I decided to take a break,” Begg said. “After about 15 months I decided it was time to come back and a good friend, Anthony Freedman, told me about the opening here at Pinecliff.” “The set-up here is brilliant and it’s a lot calmer than it was in Sydney.” Grahame says he continues the demanding career as a horse trainer in hopes to one day have the privilege of training another gifted thoroughbred. “We start and end the day cleaning out the stables but we continue our routine in hopes to one day get the opportunity to train the next best thing, that one remarkable animal.” Begg will now be looking to continue his success and expand the stables training operations in the coming months.

Peninsula boxers crowned nations best By Ben Triandafillou PENINSULA Boxing has been rewarded with two gold medals after a flawless performance at the 2017 Australian Boxing Championships in South Australia on April 8. Peninsula Boxing went undefeated at the national championships with the Victorian representatives Tyla McDonald and Jason Whateley triumphing in their respected divisions. Tyla McDonald, 13, added to her impressive record defeating last year’s national champion, Tameriah Barney-Sandy, in the final round of the ‘Schoolgirls Division’. Jason Whateley, showed his class at the Elite World Games breezing through the opening rounds of the 91kg division and earning gold, defeating fellow Victorian, Adrian Paoletti, in the final. Peninsula Boxing head coach, Marcos Amado, said that the result is recognition of the athletes continuous training and constant hard work. “It takes a lot of commitment and dedication to reach a high standard,” Amado said. “We really make sure that we are training with a purpose and have a goal in mind otherwise it doesn’t work, you can’t do it aimlessly.” The training has clearly paid off for Peninsula Boxing as they returned home as the only gym in Victoria with two gold medals. Amado said that the gym rallies behind their athletes when they have an important fight coming up. “It’s an individual sport but it’s been a team effort,” Amado said.

“We all chip in to help out our boxers and with one person being successful out of the gym, the whole gym feels the success.” Tyla was the only female in Victoria to earn a gold medal at the nationals and will now be looking to head to Canberra for an AIS Boxing Camp. “She could go five or six months without getting a fight but we want to keep her active and she’s flying at the moment so we might as well strike while the iron’s hot,” Amado said.

Whateley has taken his record to five wins from five fights since joining Amado at Peninsula Boxing and will be attempting to qualify for the Commonwealth Games later in November. “He’s at the pinnacle of boxing and to have five fights already for a 91kg boxer is massive,” Amado said. Whateley will fly over to Poland for the Feliks Stamm tournament in four weeks before heading to the OCBC Oceania Confederation Boxing Championships in June.

Mornington junior footballers tour New Zealand By Ben Triandafillou THE Mornington Peninsula Junior Football League (MPJFL) will join the 2017 New Zealand Football Tour for the first time by themselves under the name, ‘The BlueScope Steelers’. The MPJFL has competed in the tour for the past two years with the Frankston football league but will this year be tackling the tour on their own. The teams will leave for Wellington on April 21 for their five-day tour which will be held over the ANZAC Day weekend. MPJFL president, Andrew Souter, said that it has been six weeks of hard work by both AFL New Zealand and the MPJFL representatives but it will be worth it for the players to have this opportunity. The BlueScope Steelers will take their youth girls side and an under-16 boy’s side to face the AFL New Zealand Academy Level Two (youth boys) and the New Zealand Kahu Youth Girls. Representatives from the south-east football league will also be joining the MPJFL BlueScope Steelers on the tour. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for our players to represent the league,” Souter said. “We have a dawn service on the final day to remember the ANZAC’s but we will also be interacting and embracing the New Zealand culture, so it’s a real learning experience.” The junior footballers will get to show their talent in four matches at Hutt Park and the Westpac Stadium. The tour follows a successful trip to Tasmania where the MPJFL youth girls and under-16 boy’s side got the chance to sing their song loud and proud with victories over Tassie.

Netball girls shine for the Pies CRIB POINT FNC AFTER a forfeit from Tyabb last week, Crib Point’s Under 19’s played their first match of the season but unfortunately it didn’t all go to plan. The game was played in heavy dewy conditions making the ball hard to handle. It was a tight contest for most the day with Red Hill squandering some opportunities keeping Crib Point in the game. In the last quarter Crib Point had difficulty moving the ball out of their defensive 50 with the opposition scoring consecutive behinds to go on and win by under two goals. Among the better players for Crib Point were Joel Wisken, Riley Bowman, Ryan Regan, Harri Dekleuver, Jarrod Fisk and Dylan VanRuyven. Crib Point’s reserves side was embar-

PAGE 38

rassed by Red Hill on Sunday with a 71 point defeat. The Hillman controlled the game from the first bounce and moved with ease all over the ground as Crib Point struggled to get their hands on the ball. The Pies lost defender Trystan Precht with a serious knee injury early in the day. A three quarter time spray from Coach Dale Crossman sparked a fight back in the last but it was never going to be enough to get the boys back in the game as Red Hill enjoyed an easy win. Kyle Arnott was best on ground and worked tirelessly all day and Tim Malcom is fast becoming the 2’s Mr Reliable as he stood strong at full back when the ball was constantly bombed down into their defensive 50. A similar story in the seniors with Crib Point continuing to struggle on the

Western Port News 18 April 2017

big ground against the Hillman. After a sluggish start they fought hard at times to claw their way back into the game but the damage was already done. It just goes to show in this competition you can’t let sides get off to a good start because a team like Red Hill will make you pay. Dean Warry was back to his usual best and Jayden Espenschied battled hard all day with the Pies going down by 75 points. The Crib Point footballers are looking forward to bouncing back next Saturday and the netballers are hoping to continue their winning ways against Devon Meadows. NETBALL Crib Point faced Red Hill on Easter Sunday and three out of the four netball sides took home the points.

It appeared D grade ate a few too many chocolates on Sunday morning and unfortunately suffered their first loss for the season against a well drilled Red Hill side. The team started the game in a panic and rushed the play, resulting in too many turnovers in attack. Despite the defenders combing well together, the margin was just too great to peg back. Meg Romeril was a star in WD, and dominated when in Centre in a best on court performance. C, B and A Grades gave the club their only three wins for the day. C Grade were seamless in many passages of play and coach Leah Moncrieff was particularly impressed with Amie Collinson in GK who received the BOC award. Rob Williams and Jess Cook are

combing beautifully in goals, running rings around their opponents. Newcomer Bree Phillips is also starting to find her feet, playing some great netball through the middle. B Grade was again a tough slog, but our girls got the job done. BOC went to vice-captain Brooke Farrelly who was solid in defence. Brooke continues to improve her game and is always amongst the best week in week out. Old timer Laura Herrington was BOC in A Grade and Meg Hibbert impressed particularly because she wasn’t 100%. It seems this team is getting stronger with every game they play. The feeling on the court is so positive, they back each other up and chase everything down.

Sliz, Skye sign up for Wings for Life By Craig MacKenzie FORMER top jockey Gemma Sliz and 16 players, administrators and supporters from Skye United soccer club will compete in the 2017 Wings for Life World Run next month. The event takes place on Sunday 7 May at 11am UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) which translates to 9pm at night in Melbourne and all proceeds go towards spinal cord research. Across its first three editions (2014, 2015, 2016), the Wings for Life World Run attracted more than 280,000 people from 193 nationalities running in around 40 countries across six continents. They raised 13.8 million euros while covering more than 2.8 million kilometres. The Melbourne event starts at Patterson Reserve in Hawthorn East and continues along the Monash Freeway eastbound which will be cordoned off during the run. A half hour after the race starts, a moving finish line, the Catcher Car, chases runners along the course, gradually getting faster until each one is caught. The first runners passed after a few kilometres are the first to celebrate their accomplishments, while the last man and woman to be caught are declared Global Champions. Participants pay an entry fee of either $66 (if registered before 31 March) or $71.50 and 100 per cent of monies raised goes directly to lifechanging spinal cord research projects and clinical trials at renowned universities and institutes worldwide.

Wings for Life: Gemma Sliz (front row, far right) and some of the Skye United team competing in the Wings for Life World Run. Above, Gemma Sliz and 2004 Auckland Cup winner Upsetthym.

It is a cause dear to Sliz’s heart as she would have ridden in the 2004 Melbourne Cup but for a fall that left her with serious spinal injuries and eventually forced her to quit a sport she loved deeply. In January 2004 Sliz was the toast of New Zealand racing after guiding Upsetthym to victory in the Group 1 Auckland Cup. In September of the same year a fall at Ruakaka left the champion appren-

tice with three broken vertebrae in her lower back, broken ribs and broken bones in a foot. It also left her wondering if she would ever walk again. “I wasn’t allowed to move for six weeks and although my mind knew what to do my body couldn’t do it so I had to learn to walk again,” said Sliz. “It was quite a hard time,” she says in an understated manner.

She returned to racing after a lengthy rehabilitation but the emotional and physical scars remained. “It takes its toll on you both mentally and physically and I had to stop riding, not just for my own safety but for the safety of the horses and the other jockeys. “It’s a very demanding sport. You are riding a 500 kilogram animal travelling at around 70 kilometres an hour and there are no seatbelts or roll

bars so when you hit the ground you hit it with a lot of force. “You have to make split-second decisions and if you start second guessing yourself you are putting everyone in danger and that’s what happened to me so I had to stop riding.” Sliz has friends who haven’t been so fortunate and she is competing in the Wings for Life event for the third time.

Bittern & Crib Point

HOURS: NOW OPEN EVERYDAY FROM 3PM

Captain Albert Jacka Born 10 January 1893, Layard, VIC For most conspicuous bravery on the night of 19–20 May 1915, at Courtney’s Post, Gallipoli Peninsula. Lance Corporal Jacka, while holding a portion of our trench with four men, was heavily attacked. When all except himself were killed or wounded, the trench was rushed and occupied by seven Turks. Lance Corporal Jacka at once most gallantly attacked them single-handed and killed the whole party, five by rifle fire and two with the bayonet.

UPCOMING EVENTS ANZAC DAY DAWN SERVICE Starts 6am at the Hastings Cenotaph 10.15am - Assembly for March at 26 King Street, Hastings 11am - Service at Hastings Cenotaph Dawns Services will start at 6am at Tyabb Cenotaph and Somerville Cenotaph

ALBERT JACKA was born on 10 January 1893 at Layard in Victoria. He completed primary school before working as a labourer, first with his father and then with the State Forests Department. He enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force on 18 September 1914 as a private in the 14th Battalion. After training in Egypt, Jacka’s battalion landed at Gallipoli on 26 April 1915. After Gallipoli, the 14th Battalion was shipped to France, where, at Pozières in August 1916 and at Bullecourt in 1917 he won the Military Cross and a bar to that award. The Australian official historian, Charles Bean, described his actions at Pozières, during which

he recaptured a section of trench, freed a group of recently captured Australians and forced the surrender of about 50 Germans, as “the most dramatic and effective act of individual audacity in the history of the AIF”. He was severely wounded during the action and was hit by a sniper’s bullet in July 1917. On each occasion he returned to the front. In May 1918 he received the wound that ended his combat career during a German gas bombardment near Villers-Bretonneux. Jacka returned to Australia in September 1919. Greeted by a large crowd on his return, Jacka was described in one newspaper as “the symbol of the spirit of the ANZACs”. He married in 1921 and he

and his wife later adopted a daughter. In 1929 Jacka was elected to the St Kilda Council, becoming mayor the following year. His political career was characterised by his strong interest in assisting the unemployed. When Jacka’s health began to deteriorate, he was admitted to Caulfield Military Hospital, in December 1931, and died of kidney disease the following month. More than 6000 people filed past his coffin as it lay in state. His funeral procession, flanked by thousands of onlookers, was led by 1000 returned soldiers and the coffin was carried by eight VC winners. Jacka was buried with full military honours in St Kilda cemetery.

LOWERSON CL

Private Thomas James Bede Kenny

Sergeant Albert David Lowerson

Born 29 September 1896, Paddington, Sydney, NSW

Born 2 August 1896, Myrtleford, Vic

On 9 April 1917, at Hermies, France, Kenny’s platoon had to dig in on the edge of the village and engage any enemy attempting to leave. Several men were pinned down by heavy enemy fire before Kenny leapt up and rushed a post, throwing bombs as he ran. Although the first two missed, Kenny’s third bomb landed in the middle of the Germans, killing some, while the rest became prisoners. His action made a significant contribution to the capture of the village.

LEAK ST

Bittern

Crib Point On 1 September 1918 at Mont St Quentin, France, Lowerson was with a company which advanced on the right of the village, where it encountered extremely heavy fire. Troops on the left of the advance were pinned down by a heavily manned post which contained 12 machine guns. Lowerson then organised a storming party of seven men and led a charge against the strong point which succeeded in capturing 12 machine guns and 30 men. Although he was wounded in the right thigh, Lowerson organised the consolidation of the post and disposal of prisoners.

MURRAY ST

Private John Leak Born probably in 1892, Portsmouth, England On 23 July 1916 at the Battle of Pozières, France, he was one of a party which finally captured an enemy strong point. At one assault, when the enemy’s bombs were outranging ours, Private Leak jumped out of the trench, ran forward under heavy machine gun fire at close range, and threw three bombs into the enemy’s bombing post. He then jumped into the post and bayonetted three unwounded enemy bombers. Later, when the enemy in overwhelming numbers was driving his party back, he was always the last to withdraw at each stage, and kept on throwing bombs. His courage and energy had such an effect on the enemy that, on the arrival of reinforcements, the whole trench was recaptured.

Crib Point Lieutenant Colonel Henry William Murray Born 1 December 1880, Launceston, Tas On 4–5 February 1917 at Gueudecourt, France. For most conspicuous bravery when in command of the right flank company in attack. He led his company to the assault with great skill and courage, and the position was quickly captured. Fighting of a very severe nature followed, and three heavy counter-attacks were beaten back, these successes being due to Captain Murray’s wonderful work. Throughout the night his company suffered heavy casualties through concentrated enemy shell fire, and on one occasion gave ground for a short way. This gallant officer rallied his command and saved the situation by sheer valour. He made his presence felt throughout the line, encouraging his men, heading bombing parties, leading bayonet charges, and carrying wounded to places of safety.

NEWLANDS ST

Crib Point

Captain James Ernest Newland Born 22 August 1881, Paddington, Highton, Vic In April 1917 at Boursies and Lagnicourt, France. On three separate occasions. On the first occasion he organised the attack by his company on a most important objective, and led personally, under heavy fire, a bombing attack. He then rallied his company, which had suffered heavy casualties, and he was one of the first to reach the objective. On the following night his company, holding the captured position, was heavily counter-attacked. By personal exertion, utter disregard of fire, and judicious use of reserves, he succeeded in dispersing the enemy and regaining the position. On a subsequent occasion, when the company on his left was overpowered and his own company attacked from the rear, he drove off a combined attack which had developed from these directions.

PEELER CL

Crib Point Lance Corporal Walter Peeler Born 9 August 1887, Barker’s Creek, Vic On 4 October 1917 Battle of Broodseinde. When Peeler encountered an enemy party sniping the advancing troops from a shell-hole, L./Cpl. Peeler immediately rushed the position and accounted for nine of the enemy, and cleared the way for the advance. On two subsequent occasions he performed similar acts of valour, and each time accounted for a number of the enemy. During operations he was directed to a position from which an enemy machine gun was being fired on our troops. He located and killed the gunner, and the remainder of the enemy party ran into a dugout close by. From this shelter they were dislodged by a bomb, and 10 of the enemy ran out. These he disposed of. This non-commissioned officer actually accounted for over 30 of the enemy.

Lieutenant Clifford William King Sadlier

Lieutenant William Symons

Born 11 June 1892, Camberwell, Vic

Born 12 July 1889, Eaglehawk, Vic On 8 August 1915 at Lone Pine, Gallipoli, Symons commanded the right flank of some newly captured trenches and repelled several counter-attacks with great coolness. Next morning the enemy attacked an isolated trench, killing or severely wounding six officers in quick succession. Symons led a charge which retook the trench, shooting two enemy with his revolver. The trench was under fire from three sides, so Symons withdrew to nearby head cover and under heavy fire built up a barricade. His coolness and determination finally compelled the enemy to discontinue their attacks.

On 24-25 April 1918 at Villers-Bretonneux, France, Lieutenant Sadlierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s platoon had to advance through a wood where a strong enemy machine gun post was causing casualties and preventing the advance. Although he was himself wounded, Lieutenant Sadlier at once collected his bombing section and led them against the machine guns, killing the crews and capturing two of the guns. By this time his party were all casualties and alone he attacked a third enemy machine gun with his revolver, killing the crew and taking the gun. In doing so, he was again wounded.The very gallant conduct of this officer was the means of clearing the flank, and allowing the battalion to move forward, thereby saving a most critical situation.

SHOUT ST

Bittern Captain Alfred Shout

THROSSELL ST

Bittern Second Lieutenant Hugo Throssell

Born 7 August, 1881, Wellington, NZ

Born 26 October, 1884, Greenmount, WA

On the morning of 9 August 1915 at Lone Pine, Gallipoli. With a small party, Captain Shout charged down trenches strongly occupied by the enemy, and personally threw four bombs among them, killing eight and routing the remainder. In the afternoon he captured a further length of trench and continued personally to bomb the enemy at close range, under very heavy fire, until he was severely wounded, losing his right hand and left eye. He succumbed to his injuries.

For most conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty during operations on the Kaiakij Aghala (Hill 60) in the Gallipoli Peninsula on 29 and 30 August 1915. Although severely wounded in several places during a counter-attack, he refused to leave his post or to obtain medical assistance till all danger was passed, when he had his wounds dressed and returned to the firing-line until ordered out of action by the Medical Officer. By his personal courage and example he kept up the spirits of his party, and was largely instrumental in saving the situation at a critical period.

TUBB ST

Bittern Lieutenant Frederick Tubb Born 28 November, 1881, Longwood, Vic

In the early morning of 9 August at Lone Pine, Gallipoli, the enemy made a determined counter-attack on the centre of a newly captured trench held by Lieutenant Tubb. They advanced up a trench and blew in a sandbag barricade, leaving only a foot of it standing. Tubb led his men back, repulsed the enemy and rebuilt the barricade. Strong enemy bombing parties succeeded in twice again blowing in the barricade, but on each occasion Tubb, although wounded in head and arm, held his ground with the greatest coolness, rebuilt it and succeeded in maintaining his position under very heavy bomb fire.

Sergeant John Woods Whittle Born 3 August 1882, Huon Island, Tas In April 1917 at Boursies and Lagnicourt, Whittle was placed in command of a post. Around 10pm the Germans counter-attacked, Whittle quickly reorganised his men, charged the enemy and restabilised the position. Captain Newland arrived and the two worked together until the line was re-established. Whittle, who had seen some Germans moving a machine gun into a position, jumped to his feet and charged the enemy gun crew. He killed the whole crew and then carried the machine gun back to the Australian positions.
