1st Mosman Bay Scout Troop in front of The Barn, Mosman Bay.
I lived in 10 Almora Street opposite 1 and 3 from 1964 to 1983. In the sixties and seventies No 1 was owned by the Kings I think. No 3 had become apartments.
I was a Cub in 1st Mosman from 1933 till Patrol Leader in 1942 and went on 30 or more hikes and camps with them. Many former Scouts went into the Services during WW2 and some made the ultimate sacrifice. I recall our troop being told of the death of one of our Scouters in a tank action in New Guinea. I regret that I can't recall his name.
I was wondering if your family had ever lived nextdoor to William and Ivy Pistola in Avenue Road. I used to play with a Katherine Wylie in the 60’s when i came up from Melbourne to stay with my grandparents. There was a tennis court in the back yard.
I was born in 1943 at St Monans Hospital -Cremorne. I went to Sunday School at the Congregational church in Belmont road -now Uniting ? To primary school at [ then ] SCEGGS
Catching the ferry to the Quay sometimes for school [SCEGGS Darlinghurst ] College. Visiting Mosman library on Saturday mornings .
Hi Ron – lovely memories you have. My relative, Alex Aloysius Campbell was listed on elect rolls in 1936 as living at 3 Almora Street. He was a grazier of central west NSW. Just wandering if your memories or stories of others passed on to you extend to knowing anything about this person? Many Thanks.Lynne Hubbard
