‘Never a dull moment’ would describe Syd’s life. Seventy-five years ago he was already serving the community as Senior Patrol Leader and King Scout. He also gained high office in the Rostrum Club and in Freemasonry. During W.W.2, he sold War Bonds from a tank outside the Melbourne G.P.O. and joined the ‘Boomerang Camp Concert Party’ to entertain the troops. After the war, his fashionable men’s store had a list of customers that read like a who’s who of the theatre and entertainment world. This book is full of fascinating anecdotes. A page-turner.
