Re: Last night near the Royal Standard

Another OBE awarded?

Presumably not Norm Cross who I understand is 80 on Sunday. Has anyone got a recent report on Norm - who I understand isn’t travelling too well.

Another colourful tramway identity not travelling too well in 2023 is Clyde Shoebridge from Sydney.

My partner, Robyn, and I are in Brisbane to help highly respected local tramway historian, Robert Thomson, celebrate his 80th (next Tuesday).


Paul (currently travelling in southeast Queensland).
