From John Brown
I got to know Bruce and his family in the early 1960s when Bruce, John Vanselow and Brian Murdoch became involved with the ANZ Basketball Club. They were great mentors to the many younger playing members, providing support and encouragement during both the matches and the many social events.
Bruce was also a class cricketer, playing for the ANZ team in the A Grade Mercantile Cricket Association. In the June 1962 edition of Chequerboard (ANZ's staff newsletter at that time) it was reported that the ANZ team has won the final of the 1961/62 season, completing a "hat trick"of premierships, and that they would advance to the Victorian Junior Cricket Association in the following year.
At that time, Bruce had played 14 seasons with the team scoring 4067 runs at an average of 31.8. His great friend Kevin Watson had also played for 11 seasons taking 330 wickets for an average of 9.6.
Others in that team were Bill Walker, Bevyn Ranford, Bob Bishop, David Phelps, Robin Chase, P Bower, Trevor Dusting, Bill Lumsden, K Irvine and G Hopkins (Captain).
What’s the longest job you’ve had? Some ex-ANZers clocked up 40+ years at the bank! Love catching up with our ANZ Retired Officers' Club and hearing stories of what ANZ used to be like, but equally how exciting the future looks with changes in technology and innovation#ThrowbackThursday
