I reckon this thread is going to go for awhile. ;)


jeez mate.....

If I was able to put my Scout badge accumulection up here I think the server would cark it...……
Over 40 kg of badges stashed here, another 20ish kg at Mums house, 15 or so kg at stepmums,

Then there is the stash of suitcases in my ceiling full of scout scarves, Jambo mementos, and the scout stamps, and Jamboree stuff from all over the world.
Even have all the records from the 1979 Jamboree in Perth that my Dad organised - pretty much a D.I.Y. guide to catering for approx. 15000 people for a couple of weeks, including logistics of aircraft arrivals and departures / busses / tents ["borrowed" from the army, without the Quartermasters officially knowing about it] :whistle: :facepalm: , T.V. and radio station, water supply, power, sewerage system and medical facilities - and then afterwards - packing up the Perry lakes site and the rehab. program using voluntary prison labourers.


Stephen,

I think you should start to put something together mate. How about keeping it to troop badges and scarves starting with your own...

Besides myself I know of one Scout who would be very interested to see them... Watching over my shoulder.


My Dad.

The last Scout Jamboree I attended was the The Asia - Pacific Scout Jamboree in Oamaru NZ in 1978. I dare say Mum still has a blanket or two of the badges and scarves we collected.

My Massey Harris tractors.Massey Harris of Canada and later USA came about from a merger of the Massey Manufacturing Company and A Harris & Son in 1891.
First is a Massey Harris 30 powered by a 36hp continental side valve motor.This motor is seized but parts are readily available.I already have rear tyres to fit but the heavy cast rims are awkward to handle .

Next is a Massey Harris 744D powered by a 44hp 6 cylinder Perkins Diesel. This tricycle tractor ( the front wheels are close together) came from Gayndah Qld.

Lastly Massey Harris 745D powered by a Perkins L4 diesel that was more powerful than the P6 Perkins motor it replaced The top one is my first wheat farming tractor,it was already an old tractor when I bought it but it got me into wheat farming on the cheap.When I sold it the motor had been rebuilt,when I found it and bought it back of another collector I could not believe how much it had deteriorated.The other on below I bought for the motor and other parts.

Herne, is that a knife on your dads' belt? Jeezuz, imagine trying to get up close and personal with a world leader or even minor celebrity today with a "weapon" on you!!

17 Fireball, what is the logic behind the 'Tricycle' setup on the Massey Harris 744D with the front wheels so close together?

MSR the tricycle front axle was for row crop work where both front wheels run between 2 rows.

Yes mate, that is his 'Scout' knife. Here's the thing...

It was part of his uniform and a very useful tool for a Scout. If you note the proud smile on that young Scouts face that knife would never have been called a 'weapon'. As there would never have been any malice intent for it's use... If anything he would have protected her with it if need be.

But yes mate, 60 odd years down the track things have changed... We as a society have changed.

26 years on when that young Scout was taken from us. That young Scout's Son wrote to the young lady shaking his hand in the picture, asking if she remembered that Day and the young Scout in the photo...?

Just over two weeks later that heart broken boy got a registered envelope delivered with a Royal seal containing a letter of condolences, informing the boy that she did remember that day, the town/region and the young Scout named Nelson. She spoke of the fond memories of those times down under as a young Queen.

Those down to earth sentiments and thoughts are the reason I won't cop any bugger mindlessly 'Royal bashing'.

HERNE.

We should all have such good principles that we stand by.

The letter shows just how in-touch with people the Royal Family is, that is why they are still so popular.

That heart broken boy must have been amazed, and seriously uplifted, proud as punch.

The TRUTH is out there,
the Aliens think its a great joke on us.

‘17’.

The Monarchy is a public office of the highest order. Unlike a grubby Politician who has clawed it’s way into a public office. QEII was born into and crowned at a very early age through misfortune. She has been a Monarch through very uncertain and uncharted times. She has witnessed and managed the diminishing of a realm. But has endured and overcome. This is what the majority of people have seen. Of course these days there are those of less substance that think they know and could do better... :whistle:

The Son of that young Scout was amazed at the detail of content about the day and people that came back... Not only did that make him feel proud but a little less lost in the world at the time.

G’day again fellas, yet another ‘Off Topic’ thread to have a ‘mag’ again in... Nope, nor more badges. (Still to come.)

This time some more tools....

Took the youngest bloke Gryffyn up to the farm today. This means going up the back route and up ‘The Buckets Way’ perusing the olde wares stores as we go for tools and interesting stuff..,, There’s absolutely no way I’m being allowed to just fly up the highway with him in the seat next to me....

We have a great contact in Stroud for idle wares and is always a stop with wins all round as the young fella turns on his charm with the ‘old duxk’ We deal with...

Today’s collecting’s were...,

Me...




The young fella, something similar and a Convict Brick’ with ID thumb prints in it...



Total cost... A ‘pineapple”. :)
