Here's a photo that may bring back some memories, the ice run on Sunday morning up to the Dat. If my memory serves me right bread milk and ice was about the only commodity sent up on a Sunday, our day of rest, or should I say our day down the Badcoe Club.
The trucks were not suited much as a ice carrier as a lot of it would melt on the way, but the ice was a welcome site for the boys up the sharp end, even though most of it went to the Officers Mess.
