THE BUSH TELEGRAPH WEEKLY
DON’T MAKE THESE BRAVE VOLUNTEERS’
JOB ANY HARDER THAN IT ALREADY IS!
TOUGH NEW
PENALTIES
DURING
TOTAL FIRE BANS
Matt Kean MP has welcomed
tough new penalties which
will empower the NSW Police
Force and NSW Rural Fires
Service (RFS) to bring those
who deliberately and recklessly
disrespect Total Fire Ban
warnings before the courts after
NSW Parliament passed the
Rural Fires Amendment
Bill 2014.
“Under these strong new measures,
offenders can be prosecuted under
DQHZRIIHQFHDQGIDFHD¿QHRI
up to $132,000 and/or seven years
jail time if they deliberately light or
DOORZD¿UHWRHVFDSHWKHLUSURSHUW\
on a Total Fire Ban day,” Matt Kean
said.

EXVK¿UHVHDVRQDKHDGDXWKRULWLHV
will target those who blatantly
ignore the Total Fire Bans and the
safety of others.
$MXU\FDQVWLOO¿QGVRPHRQHJXLOW\
of the existing offence which
carries serious penalties of up to
DQGXSWR¿YH\HDUVMDLO
time, if they think the person did
not have enough warning that a
Total Fire Ban was in place.
Other changes allow NSW Police
and RFS to penalise less serious
RIIHQGHUVZLWK¿QHVXSWR
“We are seeing a lot of
people ignore warnings and
conducting burns on their
own properties with complete
disregard for Total Fire Bans,”
Mr Kean added.
Other amendments to the Rural
Fires Act 1997 will streamline
¿UHSHUPLWUHTXLUHPHQWVDQG
ensure those who throw lit
FLJDUHWWHVPDWFKHVRURWKHU³¿UH
objects” from a vehicle will be
held accountable, not just the
SALES
registered owner.
“Those idiots who throw lit cigarettes
or matches from cars during a Total
Fire Ban can already be hit with
double the penalty, but will now be
unable to blame it on someone else,”
Mr Kean said.

Dear Bush Tele,
Are your readers aware that
soon Councils are no longer
required to publish development
applications, except on their
website?
As a resident with no access
to a computer, I feel this is
unacceptable.
Not all ratepayers are able to
access the council website to
keep informed of important
planning issues etc.
Jack Newton, Resident.
ARE PROUDLY SPONSORED BY
Dear Bush Tele,
As a rate payer I would like to bring
your attention to what I (and other
clients ) consider major problems
with Hornsby’s new pool.
The outdoor 50 metre pool is
excellent, and I now notice as
the weather improves it is getting
crowded, along with exercise
classes and school children.
Wednesday of last week, we were
ushered in to 3 lanes in the centre
of the pool to accommodate the
above users.
It’s beyond belief a pool centre
could be designed with a 25
metre Indoor pool, then locked off
to accommodate learn to swim
classes. Yes, we all know you
can choose to swim at a very
inconvenient time, as long as you
are out by 8am.
I don’t know of anywhere in the
world where a pool complex could
be designed with a 25 metre pool
offered, but not available.
Please advise what rate payers may
use on a bad weather day, which is
mostly non summer?
I also note suggestions that the 17
metre exercise pool is available for
that, however we now have people
walking up and down the lanes,
so you can’t really swim without a
collision. I also note it is the same
water the kiddies swim in, and urinate
in and you now have a sign for
mothers to look after the children; in a
word, this is disgraceful.
I tried to swim in that section last
week and it was frankly, unclear.
I don’t who made the idiot decisions
to use the pools in that fashion, but
I leave them with a suggestion: use
the 17 metre pool for learn to swim,
let the 25 metre pool be fully available
for serious clients to swim in and
come up with an intelligent option to
use during inclement weather.

LETTERS
TO THE EDITOR
Dear Bush Tele,
I commend John Martin of Berowra
(TBTW Letters 20/10/14), for trying
to get a message across for some
motorists to slow down in Berowra.
However, in his letter replying to
a letter of Mr Paul Woodage, Mr
Martin (who must be a newcomer
to Berowra if he does not know the
well-respected Berowra-ite, Paul
Woodage), rudely implies that Mr
Woodage is complaining about the
road ‘BUMPS’ because he wants to
speed over the bumps.
Sir, you ought to know that most
of us are going to wreck our cars’
suspension if we go over these
bumps not only above the speed
limit, but also at the speed limit.
You must have a very expensive
off road vehicle with excellent
suspension if you can take that speed
hump outside the Christian School at
50kph! I slow down to below 20kph,
as most of us do. Similarly, the
recommended speed of 25kph over
the Turner Road (Berowra Heights)
humps, which are not as high and
narrow as the Berowra Waters Road
hump, is a necessity.
The tone of the end of your 2nd last
paragraph, by the omission of the
word ‘some’ in describing motorists,
reads that you are accusing most
motorists of speeding in Berowra.
I agree with Paul Woodage’s
comment that Berowra has a great
many speed humps. Many of us,
including Mr Woodage, have lived
in Berowra for decades without
the necessity for speed humps. He
was making a general observation
regarding the enormous number of
times many of us now have to pass
over a speed hump on our shopping
day in Berowra.
Yesterday, to collect mail, to grocery
shop, to go to the bank, and to visit
a friend, my trip involved passing
over a ‘BUMP’ sixteen (16) times. If
I were to negotiate them all at the
speed limit, my mechanic would be
very pleased with the extra business.
It is ludicrous to suggest that the
only way our shock absorbers
would be damaged going over the
BUMPS would be to exceed the
speed limit.
Lorraine Samuel, Berowra Hts
Dear Bush Tele,
I am writing to warn parents of
horror computer games that are
being discussed by children at my
children’s local public school.
One game refers to children being
lured into a pizza shop and killed;
someone’s frontal lobe being ‘bitten
off’; and in the game the players
are killed by robots. This game has
been ‘praised’ for its ‘brutal tension’
and for being ‘incredibly terrifying’.
Another game being discussed
involves ‘harvesting’ the ‘blood of
agonised humans’. This game has
been ‘praised’ for being ‘the most
successfully frightening game’.
8
My 9 year old son has not been able
to sleep for the past three nights
because of his fears upon hearing
these games discussed. Some
children also showed images of the
games on the school computer.
Before, parents had greater control
over the emotional safety of their
children by deciding what movies or
programs they would watch. I object
to other parents having the power to
expose my children to horror games
by allowing their children to discuss
such programs at school.
Hornsby mother of three, ONLINE

We had a sell out crowd on the
Macquarie Princess Cruise thanks
to your kind promotion of the event.
Our efforts raised $3,000 for the
charity which will be well received.
The Hawkesbury Canoe Classic

was eventful, a very dark night
punctuated by two electrical storms!
No fantastic times unfortunately but

Scott Wilson of
Mount Colah writes:
This is a story I have written about
local soldier Percy Thompson.
It follows on from the story I
wrote about his time at Gallipoli
which was published in The Bush
Telegraph Weekly in April this year.
“Knocked to blazes
round Hellfire Corner”
In April of 2014 I wrote of
Mount Kuring-Gai soldier Percy
Thompson’s experiences in
Egypt and Gallipoli in 1914 and
1915. Percy had carried a diary
throughout the war and his entries
provide us with a glimpse of the
scenes he experienced during
IRXU\HDUVRIFRQÀLFWTowards
the end of 1917 his unit, the 1st
Field Company Engineers, found
themselves in Belgium, working
around Ypres and it is here
that I would like to put some
further context around his
experiences…
As 1916 came to an end Lance
Corporal Percy Thompson was
becoming war weary. On the
28th December 1916 he turned
WZHQW\¿YH\HDUVROGVSHQGLQJ
the day ‘working and dodging
Fritz’s coal boxes*- rather nice’ he
dryly opined. Three nights later he
saw in the New Year ‘spent in a
dugout with a few bottles of Jonnie
Dewar’s drowning sorrows’.
The early months of 1917 found
the 1st F.C.E remaining around
the Somme Valley, moving slowly
eastwards when Bapaume was
taken in March. Around July they
started heading north and were
EULHÀ\LQ+D]HEURXFNLQ$XJXVW
before moving to Vieux-Berquin,
HDVWRI+D]HEURXFNQHDULQJ
the Belgium border. On the 7th
September 1917 the transport
section moved out of camp
northwards into Belgium, but were
ordered to return to billets that
night, eventually moving out the
following morning.
Percy recorded the movement in
his diary:
“Left Vieux-Berquin for Dickebusch
(Belgium) arriving later. Proceeded
to dig ourselves in owing to Fritz
being very active with bombs and
shells”.
The shelling was a portent of
things to come during the following
months. The 1st Australian Division,
of which Percy’s unit were a part
of, were preparing for another large
push against the German army. The
Australian’s were preparing to enter
the Third Battle of Ypres, which
had commenced with attacks by
British troops on the 31st July 1917.
Percy was in charge of a team
of drivers within the transport
section of the 1st F.C.E and they
established their horse lines to the
south east of the shell wracked
WRZQRI<SUHV+HDGTXDUWHUVIRUWKH
dismounted section of the 1st F.C.E
were established to the north east
of the transport section. They were
closer to Ypres, along the road
leading into it.
On the 9th September 1917 sappers
of the 1st F.C.E were made available
WRWKH&RUSV+HDY\$UWLOOHU\WR
work on construction of heavy gun
positions. These gun positions were
on the Menin Road which ran from
Ypres to Gheluvelt and they lay just
past µ+HOO¿UH&RUQHU¶1RZµ+HOO¿UH
Corner’ was considered to be the
hottest spot on the Western Front,
and hot in this context meant that it
was under constant observation and
GUHZKHDY\*HUPDQDUWLOOHU\¿UH
LQGHHGWKH2I¿FLDO+LVWRULDQ&KDUOHV
Bean described it as “a place
perpetually shelled”.
Now the Germans weren’t merely
aiming their guns on this road,
they held the high ground and
had registered their guns on the
position and were deadly accurate.
Percy’s role, being a driver, was to
carry supplies up to the sappers
constructing the positions and this
involved driving a horse drawn
General Service (G.S) waggon from
the horse lines, through the shattered
remains of Ypres and out along
WKH0HQLQ5RDGWR+HOO¿UH&RUQHU
The work on the gun positions was
carried out from the 10th to the 17th
of September 1917 when they were
handed over to the 4th F.C.E.
Percy’s diary entry of the 14th
September 1917 mentions the
work being carried out on the
gun positions and also the horse
lines receiving shelling:
“Had a job taking a waggon out
to where the gun possies are to
EHPDGHµ+HOO¿UH&RUQHU¶ Went
through Ypres - a few streets & walls
of buildings are all that remains of
WKDW¿QHWRZQQG&R\KDGDIHZ

and bombs. Have seen the order of
the day & night since coming here.
Horse lines copping it”.
Three days later on the 17th
September 1917 Percy wrote:
³'RQ&ODUNHNLOOHGDQG7RPP\
Ball wounded - shifted sappers to
advanced billets”.
Although not elaborated within
his diary entry I have no doubt
that these two men were mates
of Percy’s. 184 Lance-Corporal
Donald Clark and 86 Sapper
Thomas Ball had both enlisted
alongside Percy in August 1914
amongst the original establishment
of the 1st F.C.E. Both had served
at Gallipoli and both were killed by
shelling that occurred on that day.
Lance-Corporal Donald Clark was
thirty three years old when he was
NLOOHG+HZDVERUQLQ6FRWODQG
and was educated at Glasgow
+LJK6FKRRO$QHOHFWULFDOHQJLQHHU
by trade, he had immigrated to
Australia when he was twenty eight
years old; he was buried in Belgium
Military Cemetery.
An image of ‘the original grave
marker of Lance-Corporal Donald
Clark exists within the Australian
War Memorial Collection (photo

RULJLQDO¿HOGJUDYHPDUNHU
Sapper Thomas Ball also suffered
wounds from shelling and was
evacuated to the 2nd Canadian
&DVXDOW\&OHDULQJ6WDWLRQ+LV
records state that he suffered a
shell wound to the left buttock
SHQHWUDWLQJWKHDEGRPHQ+HGLHG
of these wounds the following day
and was buried at Lijssenthoek
Military Cemetery.
Sapper Thomas Ball was thirty
years old when he fell. Born
in London and educated at
Flora Gordon Board School in
+DPPHUVPLWKKHKDGDUULYHGLQ
Australia around 1913. When he
enlisted he gave his occupation as
a railway construction worker.
Sapper Thomas Ball had served
at Gallipoli from the time of the
landings till the 15th September
1915 when he suffered a strained
EDFN+HZDVHYDFXDWHGWRKRVSLWDO
in Egypt on the 19th September
1915 and did not return to duties at
the base until the 15th November
1915. Early in 1916 he found
himself in some trouble with the
military authorities.
Sapper Thomas Ball faced a court
martial on the 17th March 1916 for

and Thomas had taken exception

precise words regarding the military
SROLFHZHUHWKDW³\RXQHYHU¿QG
WKHPLQWKH¿ULQJOLQH´
Sapper Thomas Ball’s actions
resulted in a punishment of 62
days detention. In April 1916 he
was provisionally appointed to the
rank of Lance-Corporal. Sapper
Thomas Ball held this rank for over
a year, when he was reduced to
the rank of sapper in April 1917
for being drunk; there is a sense
that Thomas, like many other
Australian soldiers, was not a
great lover of authority.
The gun positions both these
men had given their lives for were
being built for the heavy artillery
WRSURYLGH¿UHVXSSRUWIRUWKH
battle which began on the 19th
September 1917. Known as the
Battle of Menin Road, it was the
¿UVWRIWKUHHEDWWOHVWKH$XVWUDOLDQV
ZRXOGSDUWDNHLQWRJDLQWKH¿QDO
goal of Passchendaele village itself.
The 1st F.C.E became directly
involved in the Battle of Menin
Road on the 20th September
1917. At 8 pm on that night their
FRPPDQGLQJRI¿FHUZDVJLYHQ
instructions that they were to relieve
the 2nd F.C.E and 3rd F.C.E and
carry on their work consolidating
captured strong points and clearing/
establishing communication
trenches between them. The
strongpoints were to the north east
of the gun positions, along a track
NQRZQDVWKH/RQH+RXVH7UDFN
near the Glencourse Wood.
During this action the 1st F.C.E
would lose two more ‘originals’.
Percy’s recorded in his diary
for the 20th September (or
thereabouts):
³6JW%DOGZLQDQG&RUSRUDO+DPLOWRQ
killed and about 7 other casualties
- spelling in a few days. Gained all
objectives and a bit more”.
43 Sergeant Arthur Baldwin and 76
&RUSRUDO-DPHV+DPLOWRQKDGDOVR
both enlisted alongside Percy in
August 1914, had served together
at Gallipoli and fell together just
over three years later in Belgium.
A statement later provided by
Corporal Frederick Meads, also of
the 1st F.C.E, placed them together,
consolidating positions when the
Germans attempted a counter attack.
He wrote: “Baldwin was a Sergeant

widening and deepening a sap from
the supports to the front line - it ran
through the ruins of an old house. I
had just taken a wounded man away
and just after I left - so I heard an
hour after from Sapper Johnston - a
shell came through the bank of the
trench burying them. Johnston got
them out but they were dead and
badly injured. They must have been
killed instantly. Baldwin had a pipe
in his dead hand when taken out ...
we intended to bury them but the
barrage made it impossible. We had
made the crosses - beautiful ones,
but we were relieved by an English
Regt. and they buried them.”
Several other men gave similar
witness statements.
Sergeant Arthur Baldwin from
Stanmore in Sydney was only
twenty two years old when he fell.
+HZDVDFDUSHQWHUE\WUDGHDQG
was serving with the 31st Infantry
Regiment (a militia unit) when he
signed up August 1914. A handy
soldier by all accounts he had
served at Gallipoli and had been
awarded the Silver Star Second
Class by the King of Serbia in
recognition of his service during the
Gallipoli Campaign.
Soldiering ran in the family and his

and the grief the boys’ parents felt
when they later were informed of
$UWKXUV¶GHDWKLVGLI¿FXOWWRIDWKRP
Young James Hamilton was also a
carpenter and only twenty one years
old when he fell. He was from Mildura
in Victoria originally and served with
the local 73rd Infantry Regiment
before enlisting. He had received
bullet wounds at Gallipoli and later at
Pozieres in July 1916.
James remains were never found
and he is remembered on the Menin
Gate, whilst Arthur lays at rest in Tyne
Cot Cemetery. Percy was correct in
saying that all the objectives of the
Battle of Menin Road were met.
The loss of four originals had been
a high price to pay.
The 1st F.C.E were rested on the 21st
and 22nd September 1917 before
returning to the tasks of repairing
dugouts, strongpoints and roads.
The second battle the Australians
undertook occurred on the 26th
September 1917 and was known
as the Battle of Polygon Wood. The
attack itself took place early in the
morning of the 26th September with
troops of the 4th and 5th Australian
Divisions in the vanguard.
Although not involved directly
with the attack, Percy was still
amongst the shelling on that
day and wrote: “4th and 5th

The 1st Australian Division weren’t
idle as October 1917 arrived.
The Battle of Polygon Wood was
costly in casualties but successful.
The Australians were pushing
ever eastwards and this meant
maintaining tracks that were
already resembling a quagmire
from rain in September and
would only become worse in early
October.
Percy wrote on the last day of
September 1917: “Out having

Third Ypres Campaign was the
Battle of Broodseinde Ridge which
took place early on the morning
of the 4th October 1917. The 1st
F.C.E were to act as support for the
1st Australian Division troops once
more, moving in behind the infantry,
digging communication trenches
and constructing strongpoints.
All objectives were reached, but
casualties were high and rain
commenced falling heavily prior to
10
and during the attack.
Percy wrote of the battle the
following day: “Yesterday

The number of casualties the unit
suffered according to the War
'LDU\ZHUHRI¿FHUNLOOHGLQDFWLRQ
RI¿FHUZRXQGHGRWKHUUDQNV
killed in action, 22 other ranks
wounded and 1 other rank missing.
The Campaign should have wound
up at around this time and the
Australians be allowed to rest and
strengthen their numbers. The rain
that had recommenced falling on
the 4th October had further turned
the area into a quagmire where
men struggled to move and artillery
sank into the mud. Field Marshal
Douglas Haig would have none of
it and pushed on with two further
costly attacks at Poelcappelle
on the 9th October 1917 and
Passchendaele village on the 12th
October 1917; Passchendaele
village would not be taken until
6th November 1917 by British and
Canadian troops.
During this time Percy kept moving
supplies out to the men of the
1st F.C.E. On the 18th October
1917 Percy recorded his third
anniversary of leaving Australia:
³UGDQQLYHUVDU\RIOHDYLQJ
$XVWUDOLD8SDWDPRXWWRWKH
OLQHZLWKZDJRQVSUHWW\TXLHWJRW
KRPHSP´
Percy drove the waggons for
another two weeks before the
withdrawal of his unit. The 1st F.C.E
left Belgium on the 10th November
1917 and arrived at Samer, south
east of Boulogne on the 19th
November 1917. Not surprisingly on
the 21st November 1917 a full day
was spent cleaning the transport
waggons.
Percy left for blighty (leave in
England) on the 20th November
1917 and did not return to France
until the 5th December 1917.
Perhaps the worst campaign of
the war he would experience was
behind him? ,GRQRWNQRZ
Percy’s diary does not delve
into his feelings or emotions as
to what he experienced during
those ten weeks in Belgium. I
imagine that he recorded the
names of the four originals who
died in Belgium because after
three years of serving with them
he knew them all pretty well.
Perhaps he put those thoughts
to the back of his mind and
continued on.

all different we can sometimes feel that
there is no one like us and no one who
really understands us. This can lead us
to feeling isolated and dislocated even
though we are surrounded by people
and connected to many handheld

The desire to publish an ‘update’ on
what we are currently doing taps into
our desire to be understood, validated
and connected with – the problem is
that we do not always achieve this goal.
I am so glad that the Lord has got this
one covered for us...
“O LORD, You have searched me
and known me. You know my
sitting down and my rising up; You
understand my thought afar off. You
comprehend my path and my lying

tongue, But behold, O LORD, You

Dolly is a sweet affectionate 6 year old Golden Retriever who is social
with other dogs.
Founder of Doggie Rescue, Monika Biernacki, said, “Dolly likes toys &
plays tug. She knows sit & is very cuddly. She LOVES tummy rubs and
whines & pushes against you if you stop rubbing her tummy.”
Dolly walks well on a loose lead and is not reactive to other dogs or cars.
She would prefer a home without children.
She weighs 27.6kg. She comes desexed, C5 vaccinated, heartworm free
and microchipped. Her adoption cost is $400.
For further details email [email protected]
Doggie Rescue is one of many local charities proudly
sponsored by The Bush Telegraph Weekly.

WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT
YOUR FAMILY HISTORY?
Do you have family documents, letters, labelled photographs, memories,
oral history and material gathered from the internet and genealogical sites
but you don’t know what they really mean or how to tell your ancestor’s
stories from them?
Let me help you tell their story ...
My name is
Jan Brady
and I have
lived in the
Hornsby
area for
more than
40 years.
I am a
recently
retired
History
teacher
who, after
more than
30 years
teaching in schools across the
North and Northwest of Sydney,
wants to continue researching
and writing. I am an historian, a
published author and a specialist in
Australian History.
I have recently established a
website for people just like you
to see my work and contact me.
On the website you can see brief
details about some of the recent
work I have completed. One
particular story was about a young
lady who migrated from England
and, using letters and family
memories, I was able to reconstruct
her family history in Sydney.
My charges are reasonable and
would be agreed on before I
begin the work. The cost would be
dependent on the material available
from you and what you wanted me
to do.
You can contact me on 9476 1608
or through the website at
past-history.org
