This event was a big success last year and is sure to be even better this year!

Sid & Yvette Harvey

An article from The West Australian, Wednesday, 29 May, 1963 showing the WAMRC layout in the Harveys’ home in Cottesloe. 

As discussed at the last general meeting, a wonderful piece remembering early members of the club, Sid & Yvette Harvey, has been written by life member Don Finlayson — thanks Don!

By a terrific stroke of coincidence, a few months ago a member of the public gave us the above newspaper clipping above from May 1963 which is directly relevant to the story. Head over to the Harveys’ page to read all about it.
