Brian Hodge, a staunch teacher and historian, spent his formative years in Coffs Harbour, then a sleepy fishing village, where his father Russell (a Gallipoli and Western Front veteran) was the headmaster at the High School. Russell helped organize a local militia and established a cadet unit at the high school. Brian’s experiences in the cadets were the happiest days of his young life. In 1993 Brian gathered information, memorabilia, photos and reminiscences from those who were there during the period and added his extensive research, producing a very readable history of the time and place.

Printed in a limited edition of just 500 copies we have a small number left for sale. This book provides an insight into life and experiences in Coffs Harbour during WW2.

It also includes a chapter on the Hodge family history.
