No Lives Lost at Bondi Beach

It is always fascinating to re

It is always fascinating to review our museum pieces and to see how lifesaving was shaped and by whom.
This roster from 1925 features the names of three great men who went on to be honoured by Bondi Surf Club when we named patrols after them: Fletcher, Meagher and Douglas.

Today we have 2 patrols a day on Saturdays and Sundays with over 20 members in each. This roster shows that there was only one afternoon patrol on a Saturday afternoon but 4 patrols on a Sunday. Today we have 18 patrols compared to the 10 patrols on this roster. The members were therefore patrolling twice as often as we do today.
