Dose anyone know if there are any records or Photos of the Ninth Advanced base workshops ( Australian Electrical & Mechanical Engineers) at Charters Towers North Queensland from 1943 or any of the base.
Wendy, It might be worth contacting the Australian War memorial - www.awm.gov.au
Wendy, Not sure if either of these sites would be useful
The extract below is from "Craftsmen of The Australian Army" Theo Barker , 1992.
Static Workshops Approved for Australia,1941.
Queensland - Charters Towers, Toowoomba, Mt Isa (MT Wksp)...
Unfortunately no specific mention of the Ninth Advanced workshops.
Some additional information is at http://www.ozatwar.com/ozatwar/9aaw.htm
In addition there is a very good local history group in Charters Towers.
I just wish to thank everyone for the helpful little Blog, Im keeping my dad informed and he is having a good time remembering what he can at 92years of age,
Thankyou Everyone :)
It might not be much of a helpful note but I have a kind of family that I think may still live in Charters Towers. Their name is Wherry. If you can contact them I am sure they would be able to help.
Thankyou Yvonne, some of the family are taking a trip up there this year, so will pass on the info and see what / who they can find / out.
Thanks again :)
