Memento : Issue 18
16 ur May issue of Memento featured a photo of former Prime Minister Sir Joseph Cook bidding his wife Dame Mary farewell at the Southampton docks (page 8). We described the flying boat he was boarding as 'the first Australian submarine-napier amphibian flying boat, the "Seagull", one of six ordered by Australia from the Southampton Submarine Aviation Works.' Readers were quick to tell us that 'Seagull' was a type of flying boat, which had a napier lion engine and was made by the Supermarine Aviation Works, which had its factory at Southampton. Thanks to our readers' efforts we are able to correct the misleading reference on our database and on our website. In the last issue of Memento (no. 17) we featured a photo from our collection of a women's ten-pin bowling team called the Devils, taken at Mt Isa in 1963. After the photo appeared in the Brisbane Sunday Mail one of the former Devils contacted us with all the team members' names: (from left to right) Ailsa Winkworth, Joan Edmondson, Lois Wellington, Del Winkworth (missing Del Cooley). They were in the Moondarra League and played every Tuesday evening. Now we've found the missing pieces we can add their names to our database! memento september 2001 In the story about the 2001 census, we made another little blooper when we referred to Nick Vine Hall as the chairman of the Australasian Federation of Family History Organisations (AFFHO). Nick thanked us for his promotion but wants everyone to know that he is actually the Chairman of the AFFHO Census working party. We're happy our readers help us to correct our occasional errors!
