I think corrections are required between the names D Condell and K Holt. There were at least two Shearers working in radio around that time. One was Dave Shearer, Radio Technician (working at ZLW/Makara) and the other was Dave Shearer (Supervisor, Room 53) Neither of them were anywhere near ZLC in 1958. Enter me arriving at the Chathams 15.12.56 and leaving there on or about 12.5.1958 based on Dave Smith’s arrival (he relieved me) – thus:
D Condell: 3. 7. 1956 – 14.11.58
R C Williams: 15. 12. 1956 – ?. 5. 1958
D C Smith: 12. 5. 1958 – 4. 2. 1959
– Clyde Williams
Charles Alan Glennie was a radio operator at the Chatham Islands during the war years, from 17 Mar 1941 – 27 Feb 1946. He then moved to Awarua Radio, where he became manager before retiring in the 1970s.
Tony Graham started at ZLB in 1980 and went from there to ZLC and then ZLD for 11 years until the station closed in 1993. He then joined Taupo Maritime Radio ZLM where he still works (2016). Photo is from 1982 at ZLC.
George W Marston was a radio operator at the Chathams until November 1921. He also worked at Awanui, Rarotonga, and was manager of Auckland Radio in 1953.
R Clyde Williams: “I arrived by flying boat out of Evans Bay, Wellington, on 15 December 1956. The following day Prince Phillip aboard the Royal Yacht Britannia arrived at the Chathams Islands. He only stayed one day and I stayed 513 days.”
