Hi. I think it never to late with this site. It's hard to tell who has found it becaue it has been over a number of years. I lived next doors to the Stokes. Dad was the MP Murray Jonas and also raced cars. We were there 71 to 73 and came home on the Arcadia. Where are you living now - SA? cos that's where I am

Milk biscuits - I think they were Army ones - they came in a big green tin.
Milk in bags - Milla Milla Milk (?).
I remember the salty plums the most - still addicted after more than 35 years
If I remember correctly the bags of frozen milk were Tolly ice, but we referred to them as Olly ice, as the T was very decorative and did not really look like part of the word.

Murray Barracks Primary School

I also remember the hoop faze. I was in grade 5 in 74. I recall Mrs MacNamara. She taught the class next door to mine and she was loud and I was scared of her. My mum was Mr Hard's secretary. I remember the name Raga Rabona. She was among the very small percentage of local students who were given the opportunity to go to secondary school. I also remember the day a big riot took place outside the school fence and the teachers busy trying to move us all away. A big punishment at school was being made to sit under the school bell. I've also never forgotten the national anthem. I can still sing it!
