Page 3 Girl.



Our Page 3 girl this issue is the delightful Mal Dicker, who, back at Radchool, we knew as Mal Cornwell. Surely that was only a few short years ago - where has the time gone??

John Scott was going through some old photos and found the one below. He thinks it was taken either in 1974 or 1975. John’s memory is no better than most of ours, he’s forgotten a bunch of names, if you can help and fill in a few of the blanks – he would surely appreciate it.

Ballarat Armed Guard, 1958





We don’t know a lot about this photo either, except it was taken during the 1958 Begonia Festival in Ballarat and we think the armed and ever vigilant lads are trainee sigs aircrew.


Does anyone know anything about it??

A woman in a grocery store notices a grandfather and his poorly behaving 3 year-old grandson. It's obvious to her that Gramps has his hands full with the child screaming for lollies in the lolly candy aisle, same for fruit, cereal and soft drink in their respective aisles. Meanwhile, Gramps is working his way around, saying in a controlled voice "Easy, Albert, We won't be long -- easy, boy." Another outburst, and she hears Gramps calmly say, "It's okay, Albert, just a couple more Minutes and we'll be out of here. Hang in here, boy." At the checkout, the little terror is throwing items out of the cart, and Gramps again in a controlled voice says, "Albert, Albert, relax buddy, don't get upset. We'll be home in five minutes; stay cool, Albert." Very impressed, the woman goes outside where Gramps is loading his groceries and the boy into the car. "You know, sir, it's none of my business, but you were amazing in there. I don't know how you did it. That whole time, you kept your composure, and no matter how loud and disruptive he got, you just calmly kept saying things would be okay. Albert is very Lucky to have you as his grandpa." "Thanks, lady," said Gramps, but "I'm Albert -- the little bugger’s name is Steve."
