REDBANK SCHOOL 1931
Taken after winning the highly prized 'Slater
Shield' Competion, Pyrenees School Sports Association
Back L-R: Bob Potter, Len Argall, Tom Luscombe,
Duncan Murnane, Charlie Pimm, Alice Meagher
Centre L-R Reg Argall, Dolores (Biddy) White,
Stan White, Lindsay Burge, Kevin Meagher, Doris Potter, Minnie Irwin (?)
Front L-R Kathleen Pimm, Dave McDonald, Hughie
Murnane, Laurie Murnane, Enid (?) McDonald, Winnie Potter, Leo Meagher.
Lindsay Burge is helping to hold the shield
due to his very successful performances in this competition, which helped
the school to take the shield home at the end of the day: 1st place in
both the under 11 High Jump & Long Jump 1931. He was to goon to 2nd
in the under 12 High Jump & 3rd in the Long Jump 1932, and 1st in the
under 13 High Jump 1933, but I'm not sure if they managed to hold the shield
for those years!

Not sure of the names on this one! I think
Amy Burge is in the second row from the front, 6th from the left. The teacher
(back row left) would highly probably be Mr F.J. (Frank?) Fiscalini...
if anyone can identify any others I would LOVE you to email me! (Many thanks
to Cathie Shelton for the photo)

Once again, not sure about who most are...
and I'd love to know them all!
I think Kevin Meagher, Lindsay Burge
2nd and 3rd from left front row,
Alice Meagher 3rd from left centre, Reg Argall
the tallest boy centre of back
row. Once again the teacher is probably Mr
Fiscalini. (Thanks to Cathie Shelton for the photo)

Redbank made it to the Grand Final in 1925, 28 and 30, but were defeated
each time, they joined the Pyrenees Football Association in 1934 and beat
Avoca in the 1936 Grand Final 17.12.114 to 13.10.88 (carn the Reds!!)
...not sure of the years of these two photo's,
but it's likely that at least one of them was taken at one of these matches...
very serious Redbank business!
Thanks again to Cathy Shelton for these two
photo's. Thanks also to Kev Court for his wonderful info site on Victorian
Local footy. More info on

George, Arthur and Frank Burge are brothers
- sons of Edward Benjamin Burge. Clarrie is John Henry Burge's son, Donnie
Potter married Ivy Burge, daughter of John Henry - both my uncles. All
were born between 1899 and 1906, so would likely age this photo to between
Long-time Redbank resident Charlie Egan,
holding up a headstone at the site of the old Hines Cemetery, Hines Lane.
The final resting place of many of the first gold miners in the area, the
site is now used as grazing land.
