David and our John on the Sunset Coast

Jade Hurley sounds correct to me.

I met Frank Ifield once when I was playing in the Bell Bird Bush Band at a gig in Fagan Park Hornsby, Sydney . Frank was the MC for the day . He is a true gentleman and attended Carlingford Rural School (north west Sydney)as a boy.

His brother was the gardener for our piano player(Wilma) and I believe that Frank worked as a fireman for a while in North Sydney region

So there is some trivia for us all. Sadly, when I met him his voice was suffering and he could not sing for us although he indicated that he would liked to have done so. A good bloke.   

Best wishes
