Memories from the mid 1900's

When the 1914-18 commenced Dad went to enlist but was refused because of his health, however Dad’s saying was “what I was born with I will die with”, but later he had to have dentures so I think that must have upset him!

During the war Dad was put to work in Melbourne making horse stalls for the ships that transported the horses to war service.



The Perfect Excuse

My Dad, Albert Valentine Lunt, was born in Maryborough, Victoria on Valentines Day 1892 and had younger a younger brother called Cyril. My recollections of Dad’s younger days are not very clear but I know that he worked at Phelan’s in Maryborough learning to be a cabinet maker.
