Tommy Fildes seated, Joe Dardis next to your dad, Harold Clarke and Bill Shaw on the right of the pic. There was a tale about Joe Dardis, he was an Irishman who was onsetter at Parkside, when the sinking was going on. He got drunk one day, battered his wife and went to bed to sleep it off. She then took the clothesline and, going under and over the bed fastened him down. She then took the rolling pin to him and gave him a good sorting out!!
