(To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 28 June 1940
(To the Editor.) Sir,-I have heard several rumors regarding our Emergency Red Cross, and would like to explain to people through 'your paper that we are not working only for the Junior Red Cross, but for the E.S.R.C. which was formed here in February 1939. Since then seven have obtained their "First Aid" certificates and ten the;r "Home Nursing" certificates. During our Home Nursing lectures, war &lt;as declared, and we turned our minds to the more serious side. We ran en tertainments and with collections, were able in January 1940 to send the E.S.R.C. 12 single sheets and 14 pillow slips. In February we sent them £4 in cash for the Navy, Be sides this, members are knitting. On Empire Day we had a stall in the city our proceeds from which amounted to £23/5/1. All goods on the stall were donated by,local residents. Be sides the E.R.C. we also work for the A.C.F., and last week sent them £2/15/ in cash.- We also have a Camp Fire Fund for the local boys, of whom we have five ov...
Correspondence (To the Editor.) [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 28 June 1940
Correspondence (To the Editor.) Sir,-Will you kindly make known through the valuable medium of your paper some facts regarding the act ivities of the Kinglake Red Cross Emergency Service Company. This company was formed in Feb ruay 1939 when it seemed unlikely that peace would prevail for long. and several members, realising that they could be useful to their country. should the necessity arise. decided to take the Red Cross course in First Aid. Dr. Cordner instructed the class in an honorary capacity, and seven mem bers passed and received their certific ates in First Aid. Later Mrs. Gamble instructed a class of R.C.E.S. Coy members in Home Nursing, and nine members qualified and received their certific ates, so that now our company has a group of women capable of active service in case of emergency. Among a section of this community some doubt exists as to whether we are a Red Cross- Emergency Coy affiliated with the Red Cross Society in the care of sick and disabled soldiers, or ...

HEIDELBERG DOWNED AGAIN For the first time this season Dia mond Valley Juniors really struck form last Saturday, and by much im proved team work and with a 'win ning ruck they had no difficiulty in defeating -Heidelberg. A .decided weakness in the side however, :iJAhe forward line, and before the 'tanam reaches premiership form this will have to be remedied. In the third \ term, nine behinds were kicked. From the outset, the Juniors sholwed marked improvement. They kept position far better than in ear lier games, and were up with their men all the time. One of the most dominant features of the game was the almost super human ruck work. by. the. Diamond Valley team, which ,has lben lacking in earlier matches. This Was tihe first time this year in which Diamoqrd Val 'ley have held the advantage in this important. department. Obtaining the throw-out time and again, *the rovers and" centre men were given many opportunities to be gin scoring moves. Ian Gale and Bob Laurie played -splendi...

Eltham YOUNGER SET BALL [Newspaper Article] — Eltham and Whittlesea Shires Advertiser — 28 June 1940
Elthamr YOUNGER .SET- BAL Eltham Younger. Set's second ball . to raise funds for the War. Service' Committee was completely sucCbcs fuil. from a social point, of view, but financially it was a failure. It was difficult to understand w'fy this should have been so in view of the complimentary remarks which. we?e, heard on all sides following their first effort in March. Admittedly last Friday night was inclined to _be, wet.' but this could hardly, account for the apathy of the young people of Eltham towards a function which had for its primary object the raising of funds to assist in making soldiers more 'comfortable in the desperate struggle which is developing over seas. Apart from some members of the executive committee, there was only a handful of the younger generation of Eltham residents in attendance, and had it not been for (isitors rep resenting the Montmorency Younger. Set, from Hurstbridge and Research, the committee would have been in dif ficulties.. When he welcomed the v...
