A comment from Michael Harris. ·
These Terang days are terrific opportunities for former residents of Terang and District to rekindle friendship and catch up on where people we once mingled with are nowadays.
Only two weeks ago I caught up with a chap that I shared a house with in Eaglehawk, almost 48 years ago, through someone knowing someone from these type of days, and now his daughter has lived in the street next to ours here in Grovedale.
From last year's day I discovered another resident lives actually over our back fence, in a retirement village, and another who lost his wife jusover 12 months ago shpps at the same IGA Supermarket as us, and lives only a matter of minutes from us so you can see these days can be very interesting.
Anyone is welcome we come from Melton to go it’s been going for many years Brenda Salt and Lewis Harper have organized it up till the last couple of years as Lewis passed away sadly and Brenda felt she was too old to do it the Stewart’s took it on last year and Helen has helped with putting it on Facebook
Our Museum will be open again Sunday, 20th January from 1 - 4 pm. Come along and pay us a visit and see what we have on display, have a chat about Terang and surrounds over a cuppa or find out more about our lovely area. ... See MoreSee Less
Thanks Steve. Not sure I knew he served in WW2. Do you happen to have a photo of him by any chance?
National Archives of Australia has his WW2 record. I only wish I had a photo of Clarence. His cousin Stewart Colcott from Terang also had a shell "following me into my dugout" as he wrote in a letter home.
