HMAS Parramatta standardsPosted on October 2, 2016
HMAS Parramatta standards ….
Each standard to depict the life of each of the ships, was requested by Dave Shakespeare.
The idea was that 4 local Schools would join a parade for the remembrance ceremony of the sinking of HMAS Parramatta 11.
So our shed hit the action button, with one of our members (Torrie) coming up with a design and making a template.
One of our other members (Rob) then proceeded to copy the template by cutting out two faces and an insert between the faces. This allowed for a laminated sheet to be slipped inside the standard, thus allowing the standard to used for any occasion by changing the insert.
Complete with Bamboo handles and a template to help position and cut the inserts for future re-use of the standard.
Hand over to Dave Shakespeare and one of our members (John Cole who also served duty on one of the HMAS Parramatta’s) what a coincidence and what fun to see the smiles of appreciation …..
