What we do
Corporal Robert Halls
My name is Robert Halls. I was born in Maylands WA on the 9th of June 1918. I went to school at Whittakers Mill a timber town about 50 miles south of Perth. At the age of fourteen, I left school to work on my Uncles Dairy farm at Mundijong.
I arose at 4:30 am for 10shillings a week and keep. I helped with the milking, looked after the fowls, cleaned the eggs and did any other job that needed doing. A year later I went back to Whittakers Mill and stacked firewood for burning in the Babcock boilers which gave steam for the mill machinery and other odd jobs.
