Secretary’s Report 2012
From The Secretary’s Desk
After over two years of fairly concentrated activity to initially design, then to locate, obtain and scan hundreds of documents and photographs, and finally to upload all the information to the Association’s web site, the last twelve months have been a little easier for yours truly and your Committee.
That does not mean we have been able to rest on our laurels, as hardly a week has gone by without the need to respond to members’ correspondence and/or requests for information received through our web site. Whilst I have been able to respond to many of these enquiries, I am grateful to have had the support of the Association’s Research Officer, David McDonald to deal with the more technical questions
Additionally, and on several occasions throughout the year, I was pleased to be able to meet with Association members who had contacted me to offer access to their family photo albums, and in particular, I have had the pleasure of getting to know John Marshall (7th), Dianne Schubert (daughter of Ern Cope, 8th), Jenny Welsh and Jill McKenzie (daughters of Jack Curry, 7th) and Gwen Tonkin (widow of Roly Tonkin, 7th).
