Trevor Dingles Photo's

I have just finished converting 700 odd photos from slides to a DVD for Dianna Dingle.

As stated a few pages ago I joined up with Trevor at Royal Park in Melbourne in the early 1950's and we did our trip to Kapooka and then to 1st Armoured Regiment at Puckapunyal. As Trevor came from Tasmania he often spent weekends with me at my parents home at Oak Park, Melbourne. Trevor passed away last year. As with many Veterans photos some deteriorated with age, some because of the condition they were kept in, while others were in a lot of cases quite dark. Anyway here are a few more of Trevor's photos.
