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 …..
