Majors Creek Festival

 

Music At The Creek

There will be Music at the Creek once more! One of the friendliest small music festivals on Australia’s eastern seaboard will rise again after a three-year break.

A new, energetic and enthusiastic committee of volunteers has been formed to run the festival in November 2014 and they are looking forward to the challenge!

The festival dates for 2014 are 21st to 23rd November – so mark your diaries now!

This will be the 18th music festival held at Majors Creek since it’s inception 21 years ago – so it’s a significant birthday either way! As in the past, there will be something for everyone: music, dance, poetry and a kids’ festival. Emerging young musicians will share the stage with some of the best in folk, country, bluegrass, celtic, blues, jazz and world music.

RAAF pilot led RAF Beaufighters on raid near Tunisian capital

On this day, nine Beaufighters of No 272 Squadron, RAF, flew from the Mediterranean island of Malta to attack a German airfield at El Aouina in North Africa, near the Tunisian capital of Tunis. The operation was led by Flying Officer Ronald Rankin of the RAAF, who before the war had been a schoolteacher at Majors Creek, via Braidwood, NSW; he was also an Australian international rugby union footballer for four years. On arrival over the target, the raiders found a long line of transport aircraft assembled on the ground. Nine enemy planes, mostly Ju-52s, were claimed as destroyed—seven by Rankin alone—and a further 15 aircraft and two gliders were believed damaged. The raid had been unopposed. This successful mission resulted next month in Rankin being awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross; in 1944 he received a Bar to his DFC serving with 30 Squadron, RAAF, in New Guinea.
