I taught myself to swim in 1942 as a 14 year and the next year I joined the Eltham Swimming club. I managed to win the Points Cup for the next four years starting as a Junior, 2 years Intermediate and one year senior. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the club and still remember Mr Roberts and the work he did for the club. I left Eltham in September 1946 to live in New Plymouth and joined the Fitzroy Surf Club. I was lucky enough to win the Flanaghan Cup in 1950. I am now 89 years old and with a bit of luck I hope to get to be 100 years old.
