Marriage-Notice*4 Jul 1945ST. PETER’S CHURCH, Eastern Hill, was the scene of an Army wedding when Cnpt. Patricia Mary Adamson (A.W.A.S.), elder daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R. S. Adamson, West Brunswick, was married to Pte. Sydney William Dean (A.I.F.), youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. J. Dean, Harkaway.4 
(Mentioned) Village Bell2Jan 1980 WITH LOVERIDGE’S GOING, AN ERA PASSES
David Russell, whose untimely death is reported elsewhere, worked most of his life with the Berwick owned business of Loveridge's, and succeeded his father as Manager of the B. U. store on Bill’s retirement shortly after his 70th birthday.
Bill Russell recalls the scene at Charing Cross around the outbreak of World War 1:
The Milk Bar (presently leased by Tom Van der Dolder, previously by Allens and Cooks, and owned retrospectively by Beckwith, Stuckett, Pingo, Colles and Mrs G. Thompson) was a confectionery and fruitmongery conducted by Horner and Funnell. Immediately adjacent (now Mick O’Riley and Anne McKay's art/craft enterprise) was a grocery conducted by Bill Berglund, whose father created “The Towers” on the road after his own name.
Across Halford Road was Tom “Sport” Brady’s hire coach shed (now still exhibiting well-weathered petroleum advertisements). A former garage owner in Melbourne, Tom retired to B. U. and lived in a small in-built section of the building which was formerly the co-operative fruit packing shed at Beaconsfield railway station. Across the Emerald Road, now Jack Stephen’s butcher's shop, was “Boss” Shorthouse’s headquarters for a Royal Mail and passenger horse coach/bus service. (Later Bill Berglund’s grocery moved to this site).
Alongside it, now Loveridges, was John Nathan’s general store. (Nathan’s first store opposite the Cenotaph, now Cr Keith Ewenson’s, was burnt down. He set up next door to the Salisbury Road Hall, then moved to the Loveridge’s site in 1929. Here John Glissman had constructed the present building, employing some of the timber from the Village's first school.)
Bill Russell, who lived with his family in Berwick, came into Loveridge’s employment as counter hand and delivery man in the early 1930’s when Loveridges bought the business from Nathan.
Trading at that time continued to 10 pm. on Saturday nights to cater for the influx of weekend holiday-makers. Wednesdays were closed days. Bill slept in the store for a month then brought his family to rent "Rosemont" in A’Beckett Road (now Mrs Atkinson's).
When Bill Noblet managed Loveridge’s (succeeding Syd Dean), Bill Russell moved into the Berglund shop and cottage at the rear, and subsequently purchased it. When Mrs. Russell died about 18 years ago, the former grocery shop (then acting as a bed-sitting room) was leased to Jack Stephens. Prior to this Jack was a taxi cab operator in Emerald.
Among Bill Russell’s regular chores some 40 years ago was the delivery of 44 gallon drums of lime-sulphur to the many orchards, by horse and dray. Later it was in the comfort of a 13 model Ford motor truck.
Bill ultimately took over the management of Loveridge’s for 4 years, before son David was to give him a well earned rest. Like the publicity he received when phasing out of a long association with the store, Bill's mother Celia came very much into the limelight when she celebrated her 100th birthday at the Pine Grove Hotel.
These few lines have been penned to recall the family’s association with a district entity about to fade into the past.5

  • 20 Dec 1941, COUPLE KILLED BY TRUCK
    When a motor-truck, heavily laden with sand, got out of control on an unmade road between Berwick and Beaconsfield yesterday it raced through thick scrub and killed instantly a man and a girl who were sitting behind the brushwood. The victims were: Raymond Lambert, 22, labourer, and Beryl Gardham, 19, home duties. Both victims lived at Beaconsfield.6
  • 20 Dec 1941, Man and Woman Killed. When an army truck got out of control after skidding In the sand on an unmade road between Berwick and Beaconsfleld it, struck Raymond Lambert, 22 years, laborer, and Beryl Gardham, 19 years, both of Beaconsfield. Both were so critically injured that they died a few minutes later. The driver of the truck was uninjured.7
  • 24 Dec 1941, Truck, Out Of Control, Kills Couple At Beaconsfield. Tragic Accident At Night.
    WHEN an army truck, laden with sand, got out of control as it was crossing a ford on the Berwick-Upper Beaconsfield road last Thursday night, it careered through the scrub, went clean'over the top of a young man and girl who were sitting on the roadside, killing them instantly, and then crashed through a fence. It turned completely over, but righted itself again. The driver and another army man in the front cabin were injured and were treated at the Berwick Bush Nursing Hospital by Dr. Langmore. Later a military ambulance came out and removed them to a military hospital.
    The victims were:
    RAYMOND LAMBERT, 22, laborer, employed at the Cardinia Hotel, Beaconsfield;
    Miss BERYL GARDAM, 19, of Beaconsfield.
    The accident occurred at about 10 o’clock at night, and the driver and occupants of the 3-ton truck did not know that they had hit anybody. It was only a little afterwards when others were following the track mown by the truck, that the bodies of the two young people were found. They had apparently been sitting down behind the brush, which was 4 or 5 feet tall, and had been killed instantly.
    The spot where the accident occurred is about 2 miles out of Berwick, where the 2-chain takes a drop of about 2 feet to cross a ford. Apparently the water splashed up on to the windscreen, obscuring the driver’s vision. At the same time the truck veered to the right in a wild skid and crashed through the timber.
    Deep sympathy is felt for the relatives of both the deceased, particularly for Mr and Mrs J. R. Gardam and family, who are well-known and highly respected residents of Beaconsfield.
    Many friends paid their last sad respects at the funeral last Saturday.8
  • 9 Jan 1942, Mr R. LAMBERT. At the early age of 21 years Mr Raymond Lambert passed away as the result of an accident at Beaconsfield. The deceased, who was born at Hobart, Tasmania resided at 264 Toorak-road, South Yarra, and was a son of Mr and Mrs J. J. Lambert. Mr J. J. Lambert, is a sergeant of police. A relative of the deceased, Mr C. J. Bickham, resides at 35 Haslam-street, Williamstown. The funeral, largly attended, took place on Saturday from Nelson Bros. chapel, Williamstown, to the family grave in the Willamstown Cemetery. There was a large collection of beautiful floral tributes. Rev. J. Walker was the officiating clergyman.9
  • 25 Feb 1942, BERWICK. Giving evidence at the inquiry into the December tragedy which resulted in the death of Beryl Gardam, 19, of Beaconsfield, and Raymond Lambert, 22, First-Constable E. Briant, of Berwick, said that at about 10.15 p.m. on December 18th, he went to Upper Beaconsfield road, inside a paddock, about 16 yards from the road was a damaged military truck. Near the boundary fence, which had been torn down, was the body of Gardam; and a further 8 yards away that of Lambert. Tracks indicated that the vehicle had travelled east until it had reached a ford, which dropped about 2 feet below the road level. The truck had got out of control, and had travelled straight across rough grass and scrub to where the two deceased were. It had then overturned, shot out its load of sand, regained an upright position, and spun round to face the direction from which it had come. There was nothing to indicate the presence of the ford except a bit of hand railing on the right and some planks.
    Cpl. Mervyn McDonald, 19, the driver of the truck, said he was engaged in night army exercises when his truck dropped into the ford, which he did not see. The truck lights went out and he was thrown from his seat. He sustained severe concussion, shock, spinal injuries and abrasions, and spent 3 weeks in hospital. The coroner’s verdict was accidental death.10

    A miner, well known locally as "Jack Wade," who spent some years fossicking in "Haunted Gully," and has been lately employed as caretaker by a gentleman in the district, was found dead on the Gembrook road early this morning. Whether he was killed by lightning or died from exposure in the heavy rain is uncertain.7
  • 31 Oct 1906, Beaconsfield Upper. Quite a gloom was cast over the district on Wednesday morning when, it became known that the dead body of one of the old identities of the district, Mr J Wade was found on the Gembrook road, about half a mile from the post office. For many years he had worked fossicking in the various gullies, but old age had compelled him to give it up, and for some time back he had acted as caretaker for Mr Leslie. (See Thomas Godfrey Leslie) He had gone for a walk on Tuesday afternoon with a friend, and after parting, was returning when death over took him. A magisterial enquiry was held at the Pine Grove Hotel on Friday morning before Mr. Wilson, J.P., when Drs Muir and Bennie, who had held a post mortum examination on the previous day, certified what the cause of death was Brights disease of the kidneys and heart failure.8
