Sounds a nice place to live where you are. Sorry i can't remember you, being a kid you don't bother unless they are the same age as you, i don't remember many people from the hostel, but i do remember my mum was often talking fondly of Joan Rockey.

Hi Madoc, you don't know me as I was after your time, but this forum is your best shot at contacting old hostel mates. The electoral roll is not accessible online, you physically have to go to a specific location and look things up. There's a group of us who post regularly and sometimes meet up. That's where all the gossip and name-dropping takes place. Keep watching the numerous Altona Hostel threads and photos, especially the FAMILIES I REMEMBER thread.

Hi madoc, i was speaking to my sister Mary, she was pleased when i told her you'd been on the site. She is wondering if it was you who she stayed with for a while back in 1971 in Wales? our Mary's not got access to the internet so she asked me to ask you.

To get photos on the site you need to PM Len the administrator and he'll do it for you. FRIENDS REUNITED is a good place to find old friends from school, otherwise you've done what you can on here already by mentioning names of people you're seeking. Now it's a matter of waiting for someone else to look at your posts and put you in touch. It's worked for a lot of Altona people.
