Makan 184

The Old Man visited R. G. H. Concord on 23rd April as part of the Repatriation Department's commemoration of "Anzac". He made a point of meeting 8th Div. fellows while he was there.

His visit received widespread publicity in the press and both the "S.M.H." and "Telegraph" prominently featured the visit. Many of you will have seen the photograph of Jack Brooks, Dick Fisher and Mick Cutler in the "S.M.H. " on Anzac Day under the caption "Old Scroungers Recall Changi".

This is a photograph of Sir Frederick and some of the 8th Div. fellows.

The three on the right are Jack Brooks, Mick Cutler and Dick Fisher who - not at the time knowing that the other was in Concord - were brought together as a result of the Old Man's visit. The others in the picture are Max Bradford, A. Searle and E. Bartley of other 8 Div. units.
