Commodore Geoffrey Cornish Forrest ?

I am a family history researcher and from the 1963 NSW electoral rolls have identified the above person as residing at “Torbay”, Scotland Island (possibly his holiday home as he was also residing at Gordon).

I was wondering if anyone remembered either him or the house.  He was descended from a very old, wealthy shipping family from South Shields, Durham, Eng.   He was the Capt. of the P&O vessel Arcadia which was the first cruise liner to arrive in Sydney in 1954 and it wasn’t long after this that he and his wife Monica moved to Australia.

Thanks for any help you may be able to offer me.

All Ducks Must Go!

Does anyone have room for Musky, Pete, Indy, Roo and Lil?

They are all non-noisy ducks except for Pete who gets loud if you are late feeding her. But she is very fat and fluffy and good for a cuddle so more than makes up for the occasional racket.
Three girls, two boys.Won't lay through winter but get ready for super summer Pavlova action.
