Sorry about that. Well, sorry for myself, mostly. I had to take a 'health break', so the blogging had to slow to a stop. But I'm on the mend.
Anyway, whilst I was off-colour, shall we say, someone pinched my domain name. Basically the renewal came around, the auto function failed and the domain went to the dark side. Apologies for that as well.
But I'm back, anyway.
With this quote:
"March 1933 - A Gypsy Moth aeroplane made a forced landing.. Both pilot
and passenger escape injury. The pilot, Sidney Cheesewright, proprietor
of the Stanmore Garage, Stanmore Road, commented that the Gypsy Moth
had stalled at 1500 feet above Newington College and he chose Henson
Park for an emergency landing. Mr Cheesewright, who was accompanied by
John Makinen of Holmesdale Street, said that he circled around into the
wind. The park looked small and I decided to make a stall landing. The
airplane was severely damaged."
Ah, Marrickville, how I miss thee.
