Phil Agnew - Mud crab fishing

Running time
51 sec
Date made
Department of Veterans' Affairs


We used to spend the time doing physical things, going for a run, playing sport. The RAF had some sort of a hut down at the beach and they with the rest of us, some of the officers to go down and stay there and they'd do a bit of fishing. Take it in turn. My turn never arrived.

We had a party in the mess one night, invited some of the officers from surrounding units and Allen and I, we got hold of a little boat made out of Masonite and we took it up Rapid Creek. Made some homemade crab nets and caught some lovely big mud crabs and had them for the party.
