Benalla Migrant Camp 1949-1967

Camp School Pupil Register

Pupil Register

In 2015 one of our volunteers (Anna Castles) typed up the names contained in the Benalla Aerodrome School Register. This allowed us to sort them alphabetically. Yes there are spelling mistakes on occasion. This would most likely have been the result of communication difficulties at the time - plus German and Polish names in particular were difficult to spell for Australians. The original of this document can be viewed at the Public Records Office of Victoria, under the Department of Education files.
