This should evoke some memories from among the cognoscenti of a long bygone era? Several enduring luminaries are included in the parade; among them the hero of Beersheba Colonel J R C Davies then a resident of ‘Yarrandi’. I’ve just enjoyed morning coffee (11/03/2020) with Jim Kevan’s son John. Their house is No. 1 Shaw Street; I live at No. 2. Jack Hayne is connected with No. 1 as he was related (son-in-law) to the original builder Mathew Miller. Arthur Shaddock ‘ruled’ the Sports Store when I came to Scone and Johnny Del Degan had succeeded his father Louie in the ultra-successful market garden at the corner of Aberdeen and Liverpool Streets.
