DEEDS OF A CRAZY FLEET. [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 22 April 1944
DEEDS OF A CRAZY FLEET. Defeat of the Japanese on the north-eastern coast of New Guinea is brining to a close a chapter in the history of one of the world's strangest war fleets, war correspondents say. Since December, 1942, that fleet has plied dangerous New Guinea water- ways with a motley collection of craft ranging from tiny, cockle-shell launch- es to luxury yachts, trawlers and pow- erful modern barges. It is a story of heroism and endurance, a chapter in the adventures of the first army unit in Australia to "go down to the sea in ships." This fleet, when it sailed from Australia to Milne Bay, says one correspondent, was a crazy conglom- eration of whatever vessels were then available-as improbable as the boats which won immortality at Dunkirk. Most were efficient and well kept, he goes on, but some were creaking vete- rans that had seen many years of ser- vice. In the face of untold hazards the gallant crews of these little ships took their craft on hundreds of trips through ...
Michael Bourke, Publican and Farmer [Newspaper Article] — Healesville Guardian — 22 April 1944
Michael Bourke, &nbsp; Publican and Farmer &nbsp; By "Octogenarian." The following story in relation to our old friend Michael Bourke might be worth recording. One very hot day in the summer the old man was assisting at chaff cutting operations. He was a hard worker, and a very strong man. In the thick of operations there was little to be seen, because of dust and per- spiration. Through this curtain he saw in the distance what looked like a man who was leaning against the back door of the house. In a loud voice Bourke hailed him and enquired his business. There was no response, and the hackles of' Bourke began to rise. He stopped the work and walked across the stone paved yard to where the man was standing. When the old man was in his most dangerous mood he spoke in a soft, slow, almost apologetic voice. When he got close to the man he noticed that he was well dressed, flashy, and bore a striking resem- blance to the flotsam and jetsam found on racecourses, and know...

P pular Pars By L. J. Adam. At the Anzac Day service, Mr. J. A. King (president of Healesville R.S.L.) read this message from the League: "Anzac Day is a potent reminder of a grim period of Australia, w!.eo, for four years of indescribable nightmare. the cream of our manhood shielded with their bodies their homeland from hurt. Sixty thousand of these men served unto death, and the graves of most (for many have no known grave) lie overseas, near the battle fields on which they died. Their sac rifice was matchless. All that they had they gave. All that we have and hold dear-our homes, our country and possessions-have been broad based upon the security purchased by their blood and their sacrifice. While men and women live to whom the dead are dear, the League asks for the consolation of a whole State. shar ing with them in their loss, and rev erently and gratefully remembering those who went unflinchingly to their duty, and grudged not the price of the victory won."
