Hello

1922 Jim Tarbolton thumbnailGreetings from the nerve centre.

We have been off the air for the past five days or so.  You probably didn’t notice because you were still getting and opening the website however we have had some preliminary work done shaping up to the refurbishment of the site which is coming up in the next few weeks or so.

While this work was being undertaken we could not post any stories or update the material but now we are back into it and we have some great stuff in store for you over the coming days.

On another issue we are currently compiling our annual journal as well as a newsletter both of which will be posted out to members.  Have you joined yet?

We have spoken to our treasurer, Gus, who is arranging more questions for his quiz of the week and these will be posted very soon.

If you or any of your friends or relatives have material which might interest the Society we urge you to send it to us.

Attached to this story is a photograph of Jim Tarbolton, a WWI digger, and former Gardeners Road (Sydney) pupil who went on to play with the Railway Club in the 1920s, represented NSW, then Fitzroy, and the VFL in 1923.

Images such as this are rare and we are indebted to Shirley Tarburton, one of his relatives, who sent this in.
