  • 2 Nov 1917, PRIVATE TOM PAVICH WRITES
    The following interesting letter was written by Pte. Tom Pavich, of Yandoit to his sister:
    We have been doing a march 15 miles per day, which takes us through a good deal of the rural parts of France. This is a beautyful country at this time of the year. We are billeted in a very old and picturesque village some few miles behind the firing line and every thing seems so peaceful and quiet with the birds whistling in the trees overhead, so different to what we have been used to. On every side is to be seen land of magnificent productivity and the peasantry of France working in a most industrious manner. Crops of every variety are in full bloom and soon harvesting will commence. To the progressive Australian the methods of farming here appear to be of a most obsolete nature, for the scythe is very much in evidence. We undoubtedly have more progressive methods of agriculture but the French peasant would I think produce more from one acre than we would from two, so thorough are they in all work pertaining to cultivation. The other day I noticed two young girls about 20 years of age digging on the corner of a ploughed field, on making inquiries I found it was the usual thing to dig the small piece of land in each corner where the plough cannot go. This country has suffered more I think than any other belligerent power involved in this world's slaughter for I have travelled through a great part of North and Western France and there is hardly a family which hasn't given at least one son for the great cause. There is not a man of military age to be seen on any of the farms, all are soldiers, therefore the old men and women are left to farm the land and grow food for tbe nation. Every morning these old women and men are to be seen with scythe or hoe on their shoulder walking to their field of labor.
    The majority of the young girls, have also heard the nation's call, for they have nearly all left their quiet country homes, and are employed in the great cities making munitions of war of every descripttion. Never have I seen women work so hard as the French peas- antry and I have the deepest sympathy for these toil worn mothers of France who work all hours in the field, then have to trudge home at nightfall with lagging step to commence the domestic work of cooking meals, and a hundred and one other things that confront the housewife. Yet stupendous though their labors are, and in many cases burdened with the loss of a son or filled with anxiety for the safety of husband or son, who at any time may be called upon to pay the supreme sacrifice, they always have a cheery smile, and are the last word in hospitality.
    One thing that the observer can not fail to notice is that the people of France are ardent followers of their religion which is as you know R.C. On the roads and in the parks are to be seen many statues of Christ nailed to the Cross and all villages boast of their fine churches.
    Now to touch but briefly on the large town or cities. Most of the buildings are of an old and obsolete type but always there is to be seen a Cathedral of wonderful architectture. I paid a visit to the city of Amiens. In this place there is a magnificent Cathedral of unique masonry. It is about as large if not larger than St Patrick's Cathedral, Melbourne. I noticed on some of the vaults the year 1200 so you will note that it is a very old building. I stayed to hear the service which was far more pompous than any I have ever seen before, but as these smooth faced gentlemen were speaking French I was unable to learn much from the sermon. The place had hundreds of candles burning in it and my Protestant friend who was with me remarked that he thought it a waste of candles.
    Most of the women in these large places are dressed in a most charming manner and are very pretty, but, alas, methinks it is due to the mode of living to the immoral life that these women of the cities of France live that is to be found the solution of the decay or decrease in the birth rate of this country. For the peasantry who work hard and lead clean lives, and take a natural pride in rearing a family I have the utmost respect, but for the gaily dressed madamoiselle of the city, who, in many cases, neither toil nor spin, but who are nothing more or less than parasites I have the utmost contempt, for the immoral manner in which they live, will, I think, if not checked be a positive menace to the future prosperity of their country.3

  • 8 Apr 2013, Brother: Master of his craft born to perform
    ENZO TOPPANO, 1928-2013
    Enzo Toppano spent 79 years in front of audiences. From the time he made his debut on ABC radio at 13, he was regarded as one of Australia's best entertainers. He was also the father of a showbusiness dynasty.
    He was born on February 14, 1928, in Broken Hill, the youngest of six children of Italian farmers Leonardo Toppano and his wife, Katerina (D'Appolonia). The Toppanos had left Italy then spent 10 years in Canada before the winters drove them to warmer climes. Leonardo loved to play the piano accordion so he encouraged Enzo and his brother Lou take up the instrument.
    Enzo very quickly became a performer and left school at 16. He went to London in 1949, where he was many times voted the best instrumental performer on the London Palladium circuit. Julie Andrews, Petula Clark and other later luminaries were engaged as his support acts.
    In London, he also met another Australian performer, Peggy Mortimer, and they were married in 1950. When they returned to Australia they were among the first entertainers to appear on television, with their own segment on Sydney's first television breakfast show.
    Enzo was the musical director, accompanist for other acts, comedy actor and even cameraman one day when the regular man didn't turn up. Peggy did interviews, sang and played the piano. By the end of the show's run, in early 1961, the Toppanos were working at a breakneck pace. Enzo was starring in Harry Wren's travelling show Celebrity Circus, writing music for pantomimes and conducting music and making guest appearances on television and stage. As well, he composed music for the ABC television show Cafe Continental.
    Peggy, meanwhile, was making daily appearances in pantos, then racing to another theatre to appear in Thanks for the Memory, starring Gladys Moncrieff and George Wallace. They were both teaching at their talent school in Crows Nest and trying to bring up two, and soon three, children.
    The pace was finally too much. Peggy developed an ulcer and temporarily retired, while Enzo became musical director at the Menzies Hotel.
    In 1968, Enzo (music) and Peggy (libretto) wrote the musical The Flintstones which successfully toured Australia and New Zealand with the Rudas Organisation. In 1969, they began working exclusively with Tibor Rudas as writers and composers for his organisation in North America, the Bahamas and Europe.
    The Toppanos proudly flew the Australian flag across the globe, performing in more than 35 countries. Whenever Enzo was asked what part of Italy he came from, he always whimsically answered, ''Broken Hill, mate.''
    After returning again to Australia in 1971, the Toppanos and their close friend performer Lorrae Desmond wrote a religious rock opera, The Jesus Christ Revolution. Harry Wren had heard that Jesus Christ Superstar was imminent and wanted to get his show out before it - so the show was written in six weeks. It toured Australia and was one of the most popular musicals of its time in New Zealand. It also won the award for best new musical at the Edinburgh Festival in 1972.
    In 1973 and 1974, Enzo and the entire Toppano Family performed exclusively for the Hilton hotel nightclub circuit throughout Asia.
    From 1976 to the mid-1980s, Enzo and the Toppano Family were a permanent fixture at the Manly Music Loft. In 1977, Enzo was a subject on the television program This is Your Life.
    In 1995, the Toppanos and Desmond began to write a musical called Six Days, a love story about an Arab and an Israeli, set against the backdrop of the 1967 Six Day War. It has never been produced.
    After Peggy's death in 2003, Enzo dedicated himself to performing in her memory. He and one of his sons, Dean, frequently performed in homes and institutions for dementia and Alzheimer's disease patients in memory of Peggy.
    In the last week of his life, Toppano was with his sons in Mexico recording keyboard overdubs for a coming CD for the Latin American market.
    Enzo Toppano is survived by his children Peta, Lorenzo and Dean.5
