For the first time Sydney has a catastrophic fire warning for tomorrow.

JJ - on the news it said that a part time Australian fireman was responsible for starting fires in the Sydney area, heís been charged for the offence. Unbelievable

Posted some photos of paper cuttings that Charlie Rodgers gave me on Saturday. They contain some info and information regarding PoWs from NI who were released in 1943. Charlieís dad Fred (Corky) 1 Excise Street was one of the PoWs released
