Because of a group, on the Redbubble.com website, called: The Family Album, I have been digging out (and wrecking photo albums) pictures of my time in the hostel, in Pozieres Ave, Matraville and then in Flint Street, Matraville (Now Hillsdale) afterwards.
Hope you can have a look some time.......
(If you crossed Bunnerong Road, coming out of Flint Street, you walked into Bunnerong Hostel (in those days).
And....if you do have some time, I hope you'll have a read here , as well.

Hi Joop, we were there for a few weeks end of 1954 early 1955. The Hostel was empty then and under repairs, I remember helping the buildres nail the floor boards to the board walks between rooms. From here we could ride push bikes over the sand dunes to the nearby beach (Coogee ?). The other kids at the Hostel were also with parents undergoing Management Training. We did end up at Bunnerong about 4 or 5 years later.
