 ‘Courage And Compassion: A Stretcher-Bearer’s Journey From No-Man’s Land And Beyond’

Nelson Ferguson, from Ballarat, was a stretcher-bearer on the Western Front in France in World War I. He survived the dangers of stretcher-bearing in some of Australia’s most horrific battles: the Somme, Bullecourt, Ypres and Villers-Bretonneux.

But in April 1918, at Villers-Bretonneux, he was severely gassed. His eyes were traumatised, his lungs damaged.

Ferguson returned to Australia and despite the damage to his eyes, took-up a position as a disabled art teacher at the Working Men’s College, Melbourne (now RMIT).

This story will stir your soul.

The Pipeclay Club

The Pipeclay Club was formed on the 16th May 1881.

Today, after a fascinating history and many incarnations, the Club is a 'Virtual Club' run by volunteers without premises.

The Club runs a range of annual functions, the majority of which are at the RACV City Club.
