South Brisbane

30 November 1915

The Railway Band led the march of the Dungarees down Stanley Street on 30 November 1915. Enthusiastic crowds gathered in every doorway and veranda, and flags fluttered overhead. At around 11.20am they reached the South Brisbane Baths.

After a short swim the Dungarees were provided with soft drinks, cakes and cigarettes. The Governor, Sir Hamilton Gould Adams, met the men at the baths and congratulated them on supporting the cause which Great Britain was fighting for. He marched with the men and members of the South Brisbane Town Council to the Victoria Bridge.
