“Mem­o­ries of the Ekka”

– some ex­pla­na­tions.

Old Bike Australasia - - OUT’N’ABOUT -

From LIND­SAY NIXON, Mooloolaba Qld... After look­ing at the group photo (above) in OBA 46 on page 84 it brought back a few mem­o­ries. The years 1952 to 1953 would be pretty ac­cu­rate but sad to say most have passed on. The other group photo (be­low right) is the Bri­tish team that was in Bris­bane for the sec­ond test match in 1952. The first two are un­known to me but the third rider is Gor­don McGregor (Mother­well Ea­gles) then Jack Parker and Bert Roger. The full team that came out to Aus­tralia that year was Jack Parker, Cyril Roger, Jimmy Gooch, Gor­don McGregor, Arthur Bush, Mal Craven, Ron Mount­ford and Bert Roger. The bot­tom photo on the page is Jack Parker and the one above I am pretty sure is Bonny Wad­dell. Hop­ing that some of th­ese mem­o­ries will be of some help to Garry Edgar.

Stand­ing in the back row L to R: Jack Wad­dell, Les Todd, Merv An­drews, Keith Cox, Keith Blichaski, un­known. Front row L to R: My­self (Lind­say Nixon), Bon­nie Wad­dell, Col An­drews, Lind­say Goostrey, George Davis.
