VALE William John Mills

William MillsWilliam John Mills (my Uncle Bill) was a first student of Homebush Boys the year it opened. Sadly passed away at 92 (2 yrs ago). He went on to WW2 service and then high up in NSW Railway Planning. He’d laugh and tell stories of early Homebush “Well of course it was dangerous crossing Parramatta Road walking to school as you were at risk of being run over by a solid rubber tyred truck that would be approaching from 200 yards away speeding at 10 miles per hour !!!”

He was one of the original intake the year the school opened. Sadly missed. First intake of Homebush Boys the year it opened.
