  • Notes 
    • Robert lived in a Boarding House in Clifford Street, Toowoomba, run by Muriel Lamb's Mother, Mrs Crouch. He played Cricket and was interested in Rugby League supporting " Clydesdale " the Toowoomba side. He had a natural wit about him and was considered by his workmates to be one of "nature's gentlemen." He had an extradordinary ability with figures and often helped out at The North School, Toowoomba, during Election Times, as he was so good with figures.

      He wasn't gifted with a singing voice but my(daughter) memories of him are singing "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles In The Air" whilst making porridge (on the wood stove) at Taylor St, Toowoomba. Also "If You Were The Only Girl in the World." There was a Diggers Session on the Radio 6.30 pm Saturday who sang all these old songs, also " Hang Out Your Washing On the Zigfield Line."

      Robert Craig was Locomotive Staff Clerk, General Manager's Office, Toowoomba. Worked in the Railway Department at Toowoomba from abt. 1920 to 1950.
