The Corps of Guides, established in 1983, is an active group of retired service men and women who give of their time freely and joyously to share the history of Victoria Barracks. There were up to a hundred interested members of the public shown around in maybe 5 groups.
My group was guided by Tom Marshall, ex-Navy, and a Scot by descent. He was demobbed in 1948, and took up teaching. He is now aged 82, and has a delightful turn of phrase and a wide-ranging knowledge, not just of the Australian services and Victoria Barracks. A gentleman, a scholar and a joy to meet.
