About me

I am 47 years old, and live in South Windsor, NSW, Australia.

I have started my own freelance indexing/editing/proofreading business called “WordClass Indexing & Editing”, after being made redundant from my full-time indexing job of 21 years in September 2011. I enjoy not having to drive to work each day!

    • Hi Colene, My wife has just directed me to ‘1st Toongabbie Scout’ WEB sight, where Ellis, I and several others appear in the history of the scout troop. In respect to Ellis’s #98 ‘Terraplane’ stock rod racing at Westmead Speedway, we as a group of friends became his and Ray Goodchild’s support team. What a time to be alive!!.

  3. Graham. My update of the Wikipedia site I mentioned took me half a day at 3,000 words, then they took it down and scolded me for not doing it properly. Who reads the instructions? As a result their entry remains erroneous – their problem. Regards . Alan Leek


  4. Hello Graham. For the past several years I have been researching the Whirlpool VC story. The resultant book, ‘Frederick Whirlpool VC – Australia’s Hidden Victoria Cross’, Big Sky Publishing, Sydney (2018) has just been published. It will be launched at the Hawkesbury Regional Museum at 2pm Sunday October 7, 2018 by Susan Templeman MP. I will be giving a talk there, taking questions and signing books.

    In the meantime, I have summarised my findings (very briefly) in a Wikipedia update, which you might find helpful for your own site – I hope so. And – one day we might see a proper memorial to Whirlpool in the South Windsor cemetery. Link: http://www.bigskypublishing.com.au Best regards . Alan Leek


  5. Graham,

    Hi. I have written a book on Australian military history and have included a section on the Australian Volunteer Car Corps. I would like to use one of the photos that you have used in your blog but need to get the attribution correct. Could you please contact me ASP on phil_rutherford@ozemail.com.au to discuss.

  6. Hi Graham.

    Nice of you to create a blog about us.

    Just a couple of points…… your first picture shows the car with a Morand Chevrolet engine in the back and was taken in 1973, not 1971. Also, the strange German Grand Prix picture was from the paddock not the pits – they never let us get anywhere near the pits!

    As far as Tony Trimmer damaging the chassis beyond repair…. that can’t be right because I have recently repaired the dent so that we can rebuild the car to show at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this summer.

    I hope you aren’t offended by my comments. They are not meant to belittle your efforts.

    If you would like any more info please feel free to contact me.

    All the best,

    Barry J. Boor. brucebook48@hotmail.com
