Village Bell*Oct 2000The article reads: The shire has erected a new flagpole at the cenotaph. The old flagpole was showing signs of wear, it was rusting in places. The old flagpole was donated to the RSL and the township by Mr Charles Roy Walker, then of Fassifern, in memory of his son Roy who was killed in 1943. Roy Walker's sister, Mrs Audrey Ridgeway of Berwick, was pleased to know that the old flagpole has been "recycled". Keith Ewenson and his son saw the council workers who were demolishing the flagpole, and saved it. They have removed all of the rusty and dangerous parts and it will proudly fly the flag in the garden of 1 McBride Road, adjacent to the Cenotaph.6

  • 28 Sep 1887, A fire occured at Beaconsfield on Wednesday last by which the residence of Mr. W. H. Dale was reduced to ashes. Nothing was saved except one box, his loss being estimated at about £600. We believe that Mr. Dale's place was insured for £200 which will not half cover his loss.31
  • 3 Mar 1894, THIS DAY. At Half-past Three O'Clock. At Kirwin's Produce Store Opposite Railway Station, Beaconsfield, 20-acre ALLOTMENT on which are erected Two W.B. Houses, now occupied by Mr. W H Dale. By Order of the Mortgagee.
    J. GREEN will SELL by AUCTION as above, at Kirwin's product store opposite Beaconsfield station, 20 acres of land on the main Gembrook road, opposite Ferndale post-office on which is erected a six-roomed W.B house known as Ferndale, with dairy, verandah, outbuildings, stabling, coachhouse, and workshop complete together with a four-roomed W.B. cottage, outbuildings, stables, coach house, &c. Each house has a tank capable of holding 2000 gallons. The land is situated in the most picturesque part of Beaconsfield, that far-famed locality for health. The houses are fitted with every convenience suitable for a country life. The garden is well stocked with fruit-bearing trees, surrounded by a creek affording excellent fishing. The hills abound with game, the sportsman's delight. Positively to be sold by order of the mortgagee. Title Crown certificate. Terms at sale. Particulars to be obtained from Messrs. Turner and Lyons, solicitors Collins-street J. Green, auctioneer, 142 Queensberry-street, North Melbourne, opposite town hall.32

  • 4 Dec 1926, MAKING OF MEN. THE BOYS' BRIGADE. GENERAL FOOTT'S TRIBUTE.
    "Fellows physically fit were also mentally fit, for no fool would be a gymnast," said, Brigadier-General C. H. Foott, after inspecting the 1st Brisbane Company of the Boys' Brigade in their hall at Enoggera-terrace last night.
    The occasion was the 14th annual inspection of the company, which is under the command of Captain G. Orr, aided by Lieutenants R. Tait, L. Milliner, C. Leaver, J. Wilkie, E. Milliner, F. Cherry, and Staff-Sergeant G. Horsburgh.
    The company gave the general salute, performed rifle exercises and drill, and physical drill with arms, and gave ambulance, signalling, and vaulting horse displays, winding up with a march round led by its bugle band. After which the prizes won during the year were presented by Mrs. Hubert Robertson.
    Brigadier-General Foott opened his re marks by saying that he had a confession to make. He had arrived very tiled and expecting to be bored, but he had been interested every moment he had been there. - He had worn the Queen's and King's uniform for over 38 years, and he had been very much struck with the discipline he had seen that night, and was proud to sec the excellent physical training of the boys. He hoped that next year their commanding officer would let him know in time, so that he could put the Victoria Barracks drill ground at their disposal. There they would have more room to manoeuvre and more room for visitors.
    The Mayor of Brisbane (Alderman W. A. Jolly) said that he had supposed that he had discovered all the worth-while institutions in Brisbane since he had been in office, but the Boys' Brigade was a "new one on him." There was nothing wrong with Australia while they could produce such boys. When he arrived he thought his old friend, Mr. Tait, had got an army together "to defend the hills of Ithaca, Captain Orr was tendering a very special service to the community. He was engaged in the greatest of all work—that of making men.
    Lieutenant-Colonol F. W. G. Annand commented on the "nip" about the work of the boys that made all the difference in an inspecting officer's eyes, and Captain Orr, replying, sketched generally the work of the brigade.23
  • 1 Jul 1931, BASE COMMANDANT Brigardier-General Foott Retires.
    In accordance with a decision reached only within the last few days, Brigadier-General C. H. Foott, base commandant of the 3rd Military District and commander of the 4th Division, retired yesterday, after 42 years' service with the Australian military forces. The announcement was a surprise to many. Though not entirely unconnected with the retrenchments now being made in the defence services. General Foott's retirement was voluntary. He explained yesterday that, in view of the fact that he was within a few years of the retiring age, and that he was in a position to retire now, he had elected to do so, as it was evident that he would thus be helping in the economy plans.
    Brigadier-General Foott expressed regret yesterday at severing his connection with the military forces after such long service. Since he had first held a command he had never been "let down," he said, which was a very great thing for a senior officer to be able to say. His appreciation of the work done by members of the military forces is strikingly expressed in the following special order issued by him on his retirement:—
    In relinquishing command of the 3rd District Base and 4th Division, after having held them for 18 months and 12 months respectively, I desire to thank all the officers, warrant, and non-commissioned officers, and men of the military forces, and the civilian staffs of those formations for very loyal and unselfish service.
    The period through which we have just passed has called for great energy and sacrifice on the part of every member of the military forces. That you have answered the call so well is shown by the healthy and vigourous condition of the forces I feel sure that the future, whatever it may bring forth, will show a continuance of those fine qualities by the exercise of which you have made the force what it is.
    I only wish that the extent and nature of the work you do, the time and energy you spend in and on the military forces, were better known and better appreciated by all the people. Again, I thank you for your assistance and I wish you all the best of fortune.
    Of the 42 years spent by Brigadier-general Foott in the service 39 were spent in the militia and permanent forces. He enlisted in the Brisbane volunteer engineeers, as a sapper, and in 1892 he joined the permanent forces. He holds the distinction of having passed the examination for captaincy in both engineers and artillery under British regulations. During the Great War he gave distinguished service on Gallipolli, in Egypt and France, for which he was six times mentioned in despatches. He was promoted from major to lieutenant-colonel at Anzac, and in March, 1917, he went to France as chief engineer of the Australian Corps with the rank of Brigadier-general. After the armistice he was appointed deputy director-general of repatriation and demobilisation, and he was honoured with a C.M.G. After his return to Australia he held a number of important posts, including that of base commandant in Queensland. in December, 1929, he was appointed base commandant in Victoria, and on August 1, 1930, commander of the 4th Division.
    It was learned yesterday that the position of base commandant is not likely to be filled immediately.24
  • 5 Mar 1934, BEACONSFIELD UPPER. -Owing to the death of Mr W J Harvey-Smith and the resignations of Mr Francis and Mr Glismann three vacancies occurred on the trusteeship of the public hall and children's playground. At a public meeting Brigadier-General Foott and Messrs Knapton and C A Harris were appointed to fill the vacancies.25
  • 17 Jan 1935, Celebrations at Beaconsfield
    To popularise Beaconsfield Upper as a health and holiday resort, a series of reunion entertainments has been arranged for the Australia Day week-end, January 26 to 28. Beaconsfield Upper now has an excellent main road approach, an electricity supply from Yallourn, and a modern guest house.

There will be special Church services on Sunday, and on Monday a burlesque cricket match on the recreation ground, followed by a ball in the evening. All arrangements are in the hands of a committee, of which Brigadier-General Foott is president and Mr. Thorogood secretary. Information may be obtained from them.26

Australian Dictionary of Biography

FOOTT, CECIL HENRY (1876-1942), regular army officer, was born on 16 January 1876 at Bourke, New South Wales, son of Irish-born Thomas Wade Foott, stock inspector and station-owner, and his Scottish-born wife, Mary Hannay Foott, née Black, teacher, poet and journalist. After his father's death in 1884 he was educated at Toowoomba and Brisbane Grammar schools and later qualified as a mechanical engineer.
Foott was commissioned second lieutenant in the Queensland Militia Garrison Artillery in March 1895 but joined the Queensland Permanent Artillery in September 1896 as a lieutenant. In March 1901 the military forces of the Australian States were transferred to Federal control and in July Foott was promoted captain in the Royal Australian Artillery; that year, on 15 October, he married Isobel Agnes McDonald at Moorooka, Queensland.
In 1902 Foott transferred to the Royal Australian Engineers but remained in Queensland as staff officer, engineer services. He went to England for technical training in 1908 and on returning was staff officer and commander, R.A.E., in Victoria in 1909-10. Promoted major in August 1909, his next posting was to Army Headquarters, Melbourne, where in 1910-11 he was director of works and in 1911-12 director of engineers. He attended the staff college at Camberley, England, in 1912-13 and in 1914 was attached to the British Army in England for further training.
In January 1915, in the rank of major, Foott joined Major General (Sir) William Bridges's 1st Division, Australian Imperial Force, as deputy adjutant and quartermaster general. After the Gallipoli landing Bridges was mortally wounded in May and in August Foott, who had been promoted lieutenant-colonel in June, was re-posted within the division as assistant adjutant and quartermaster general, an appointment he held for the next two years. During this time the division withdrew from Gallipoli, reorganized in Egypt and then served on the Western Front, Foott was appointed C.M.G. and awarded the Serbian Order of the White Eagle (4th class) in 1916.
He was transferred to A.I.F. depots in Britain as deputy adjutant and quartermaster general in July 1917, and in March 1918 was posted to Lieutenant-General Sir William Birdwood's Australian Corps in France as chief engineer. Although Foott was an engineer officer this was his first appointment as such during the war and he retained it after Lieutenant-General Sir John Monash took command of the Corps on 1 June. After the Armistice, when the A.I.F.'s Department of Repatriation and Demobilization was established in London, Foott became its deputy director general with Monash as director general. For his war service he was mentioned in dispatches seven times and in 1919 was appointed C.B. His only brother, Private Arthur Patrick Foott, was killed in action at Passchendaele.
Foott returned to Australia in November 1919 after an eight-year absence and his A.I.F. appointment ended in February 1920. The post-war era which he faced as a regular officer in the Australian Military Forces was one of economy in defence, with few prospects of promotion. In October 1920, as a colonel and honorary brigadier general, he joined the newly formed Australian Staff Corps, then in 1922-25 served as a colonel in various posts at Army Headquarters in the quartermaster general's branch. In 1926 he was posted to Queensland where he was given, concurrently and temporarily, for the next four years three command appointments including that of base commandant, 1st Military District. By late 1929 the Depression had forced further cuts in military spending. In August 1930 Foott was transferred from Queensland to Victoria to be temporary commander of the 4th Australian Division as well as temporary commandant and base commandant of the 3rd Military District. In these circumstances, at the age of 55, he was transferred to the reserve of officers in July 1931; his army career ended then although it was not until February 1936 that he was officially placed on the retired list as an honorary brigadier general.
Foott's wife had died in 1926 and on 6 September 1934 he married Agnita Regnier Cogan at St James Anglican Church, Pakenham, Victoria. Survived by his wife and the son and two daughters of his first marriage, he died of a coronary occlusion on 27 June 1942 at Upper Beaconsfield, and was buried in Berwick cemetery with Anglican rites. His estate was valued for probate at £975. Charles Bean described him as 'a man of educated tastes and fine intellect' and 'an officer of great ability' who became 'one of the notable figures in the Australian Imperial Force'. His portrait, by George Coates is in the Australian War Memorial.28

  • 13 Dec 1944, MRS. G. F. TIVENDALE. THE DEATH at the Mercy Hospital on November 29, of Mrs. Ethel Georgeann Tivendale, wife of Mr. George Frederick Tivendale, of Officer, robs that district of one of its most respected citizens.
    Among other activities the late Mrs. Tivendale was a faithful member of the ACF, and that organisation will miss her greatly. Deceased, who was only 58, had been ill for some weeks before she passed away.
    Born at Canterbury, she was the daughter of the late Solomon and Rosetta Harris, of Beaconsfield Upper. Mr. Claud Harris, of Upper Beaconsfield, is a brother.
    Mrs. Tivendale endeared herself to all by her pleasant manner and friendly nature, and many friends join with her husband, three daughters and three sons in their grief at her death. Two of her boys are in the AIF, and the other in the RAAF.
    The funeral last Saturday was very largely attended, and there, ware a host of beautiful floral tributes. Before the lengthy cortege left for the Berwick cemetery, Mr. Alan T. Linnett, of the Congregational Church conducted a solemn-service at the home. He also officiated at the graveside. The coffin-bearers were Messrs. W. and E. Tivendale, C. Harris and J. Porter. The pall was carried by by Crs. C. Greaves and T. C. Whiteside; Messrs. G. Wakley, G. Crook, J. Hicks, G. Brunt, J. Reid, P. Brown, J. Adamson and A. Rix. W. J. Garnar and Son conducted the funeral.8
