Memories of the Cowra Breakout

17/07/2019 // by admin

LOOKING BACK: Cootamundra’s Noel Golledge looks at a photo from his days serving in the Army alongside his cousin Percy Golledge. TUESDAY’S date, August 5 marked the anniversary of the famous – or infamous – ‘Cowra Breakout’.
Nanjing Night Net

In 1944, at least 1104 Japanese prisoners of war attempted to escape from a camp near Cowra.

It was the largest prison escape ofWorld War II, as well as one of thebloodiest.

In the thick of the action was Cootamundra’s Noel Golledge, likely to be one of the last surviving soldiers involved in the Cowra Breakout tale.

Noel enlisted in the Army at 16-years-old and was only 17 when he and his 18th Battalion mates were called to Cowra to help with the mass breakout.

“We were rushed by train and buses to Cowra (from Sydney) to quell the tide,” Noel recalled.

Up to 200 men just from his Battalion were part of the operation to capture the escapees.

“We rounded them up from Hay to Cowra,” Noel said.

The escaped prisoners were herded into groups before being loaded into caged trucks and transported to Murchison prisoner of war camp in Victoria.

There were three stopovers along the way where a ‘weapon pit’ would be established with a machine gun mounted and the Australian troops in charge of the transport would spend the night watching the prisoners in the camp.

It would be freezing cold but the Japanese prisoners would never stop and settle down, they would pacethe barbed wire fence all night, Noel said.

Once the group of prisoners were installed in Murchison, Noel’s 18th Battalion stayed with them for a further two weeks.

He recalls there were between 150 and 200 soldiers from his battalion involved in the transport task.

The 18th Battalion was known colloquially as the ‘Young Persons’ Battalion’ with almost all of the soldiers under 18 years.

Over the course of his five years with the Army, Noel rose through the ranks and fought on the frontline.

He will be 89 this year, making him amongst the dwindling number of World War II veterans still alive today.

Should Narromine pay a security levy?Photos and Poll

17/07/2019 // by admin

At its last meeting council raised the possibility of a security levy being imposed on residents to create a safer central business district.
Nanjing Night Net

Should Narromine pay a security levy? | Photos and Poll “I would if it works, it would be good to have cameras in the CBD,” John Mutton

“Depends on how it was going to be used and who was going to enforce it,” Roger Blackman.

“It would depend on what you got for it. I’ve got two good dogs and don’t have a lot of trouble,” John Lenehan.

“No I can’t afford that. You have to pay for everything these days,” Carol Middleton.

“Yes if it’s going to help. Something had to be done, it’s getting bad,” Joyce Mills.

“I suppose so,” John.

“I think we should have CCTV cameras, but I don’t think ratepayers should have to pay for it. Council should for the towns people’s safety,” Erin Payne.

“If it’s to protect your business, it would be good to have cameras. The money has to come from somewhere. Does Council have enough?” Ruth Simmons.

“Are they going to have someone driving around the patrol the streets? I don’t think cameras would make a whole lot of difference,” Karen Arnaudon.

The Narromine CBD.

TweetFacebookThis plan could include introducing a security levy which would be used to improve security.

Cr Mack said he spoke to a shopkeeper in Wellington about the levy.

He reported although the shopkeeper was initially disgruntled at the extra cost he now happily pays the levy.

We asked the people of Narromine if they think the extra cost is necessary and here’s what they came up with.

Nanjing Night Net

The shire was one of eight Local Government Areas that received funding.

NSW Deputy Premier, Andrew Stoner and Minister for Natural Resources, Lands and Water, Kevin Humphries announced the grants yesterday.

The shire will receive $1,980,000 for additional bores throughout Narromine and Trangie.

Narromine Shire Mayor, Bill McAnally is thrilled with the funding.

“It’s great, it was a great application. Hats off to Kerrie (Murphy) and her staff. It’s certainly needed,” he said.

Mr Stoner said Water Security for Regions was established to help communities prepare for future drought conditions.

“The NSW Government is serious about improving water security infrastructure in the regions to help farmers and regional industries deal with drier conditions,” he said.

Cr McAnally said this funding was vital for the water security in the shire.

“We had trouble through the last drought. Now we’ll have enough bores to manage through another drought,” he said.

The State Government has reserved $366 million to invest in water security projects including augmenting dams, pipeline and bore works and water efficiency mechanisms. “So far we have spent $21 million on projects in places like Bourke, Cobar, Forbes and Cooma,” he said.

He said the funding for the additiona key projects across NSW will secure good quality, reliable water supplies for their poeple their towns into the future.

The other shires that recieved funding were Brewarrina, Glen Innes, Liverpool, Parkes, Tumbarumba, Walgett and Warren.

“As well as securing good quality, reliable water supplies, these projects were also selected for their economic benefits to both the local community and the State,” Mr Stoner said.

NEW: Brooke Barnes & Katy Mackley.

STATUE: Alida Ferrari and Danika Hill.

More than 50 Year 10 students from twoBendigo schools melded their artistic minds on Thursday.

The LEAP program, administered by RMIT, visited La Trobe University Visual Arts Centre.

Learn, Experience, Access Professions programs aim to demystify the link between school, university and professions.

They spent their day learning and living an artistic life directed bygraphic designer, Craig Dunne and fashion illustrator Angie Rehe.

The students came from Eaglehawk Secondary College and Crusoe College.

The day was designed to allow the students to gain insight into a range of design careers.

The day focused on allowing students from lower socio-economic areas to recognise artistic opportunities were as available to them as any other part of society.

Craig Dunne and Angie Rehe presented talks to the students designed to inspire and encourage.

The students were then able to demonstrate more practical areas of art.

The students took part in two practical workshops, designed to coincide with the current exhibitions, The Body Beautiful in Ancient Greece and Undressed: 350 years of underwear in fashion.

Bendigo Art Gallery Education Officer Helen Attrill said there was one students who was anxious about attending Bendigo Senior Secondary College next year.

Ms Attrill said the student had completely changed their mind after the workshops.

“They are now focused and quite excited,” she said.

Ms Attrill said the program was a special opportunity for the students.

She said it told them you did not “have to have rich parents to succeed” in the arts.

The students said they had learnt a lot about new pathways.

Students also said the program allowed them to demonstrate their creative skills through drawing and rendering.

Ms Attrill said it was about offering opportunities students would not usually get in regional towns.

‘Woolly’ weeders, ‘woolly’ weather and ‘woolly’ walkers

16/06/2019 // by admin

The Ben Lomond community have embraced a new way of keeping their town tidy. It is a lot quieter and cheaper to run than a lawn mower, requires little maintenance and even less labour. In fact it is the weed control method that relies on hunger alone – the hunger of a mob of Dorper sheep.

A project of the Ben Lomond Landcare Group the sheep, affectionately known as the ‘woolly weeders’ were moved on to one of the main paddocks in Ben Lomond late in July.

The week July20 to 26 saw an intense week of preparations to move of the sheep flock onto one of the main paddocks in Ben Lomond for the Landcare Group project.

They are now a part of the community and have a new role in keeping tracts of land within and about the village ‘mown’ and tidy. Trees planted in times when there were no livestock and a lot of lawn mowing are establishing about the oval area. The push was on to protect the trees and finalise the enclosure to guarantee a safe home for trees, sheep and lambs. It was a huge undertaking which came to fruition when the gate was opened and under several pairs of watchful eyes the flock was moved.

The ‘woolly weeders’ also watched on a sun free Saturday the following week, when ‘woolly weather’ greeted an ambitious group of ‘woolly walker’ setting out to walk to the top most point locally, “The Brother Mountain” (altitude 1508 metres above sea level).

Firstly, following drier times with many livestock grazing the roadside, Ben Lomond Landcare Group members gathered to report on the regular roadside rubbish retrieval program. Unfortunately the shortness of the grass along the roadside verge, revealed the disappointing collection of ‘way too many’ bags of waste from ‘tossers’. These were taken to the tip for sorting with a large proportion of the waste being recyclable.

The clean-up team then welcomed the walking group from Guyra, who shared a barbecue lunch with a view to completing the walk together. And then it rained!

Heeding the words of the ‘weatherman’ to wait a little while, the party of walkers were able to take advantage of a break in the weather and complete the climb. At the topmost point they were privileged to witness a cold but unique spectacle as chards of sunlight pierced the clouds to highlight tracts of the horizon away to the east and the ribbon roads glistening from the shadows. After an easy descent the satisfied group returned home as a thick fog closed the window, leaving an eerie visibility of a mere 200metres.

A Healthy Highlander’s Group meet at the Ben Lomond War Memorial Hall on Wednesday afternoon at 3pm. The group is led by Sue Adams and is utilising the indoor space as well as the outdoor gym when weather permits. Sue is qualified to lead with Heart Foundation and Diabetes Australia training and she welcomes anyone who would like to join in to improve their fitness and maintain their mobility
