Harry - Best Motrocycle Rider Record
An Honorary Cop of old at Victoria Point
What Oak Tree loves most about our work is our residents and the stories they have lived; every village and every resident has a tale to tell full of wisdom and history. This week we learned of a great tale from our Victoria Point resident Harry Burley - a former Senior Constable in the Australian Police Force.
Harry was stationed at the Roma Street Police station back in 1963. At the time Harry held the record for the best Motorcycle Rider and the Police squad held a party in his honour. This photo captures Harry in his prime, enjoying the limelight of his success.
Harry turns 90 years old in March. What a great memory to look back on, along with many others, as approaching this major milestone. May there be many more great memories and milestones to come.
