2:10 The Road Transport Pioneer - George Wallis - George Wallis' father could never understand why his son wanted to be a truck driver. Far better to sit in your office, he told George, and let someone else drive your trucks around for you. But George dreamed of being on the road, and he persisted in that dream, as young men do.
He bought his first runabout in 1957, and his first big rig in 1959. Fast forward a few years later, and George Wallis of Wanaka has been recognised as one of our great road-transport pioneers.
He was inducted into the NZ Road Transport Hall of Fame last week.
2.20 Bomber Command - Beatrice Boyce - Auckland's Museum of Transport and Technology has started a new project, celebrating New Zealanders' contribution to Bomber Command.
Bomber Command, as we know, was the RAF's offensive during World War II, devoted to disrupting the enemy war effort and weakening the morale of the Germans. The Bomber Command Project will honour all the kiwis who took part in it, by recording their names and stories. Beatrice Boyce is certainly someone who made her Bomber Command contribution. She spent 3 years at a factory near Manchester, during World War II, making Lancaster Bombers.
