Robert HAYBALL [id1414]

World War I

Regimental number 105 - Church of England - Carpenter - Private - 3rd Pioneer Battalion, Machine Gun Section - Unit embarked from Melbourne, Victoria, on board HMAT A62 Wandilla on 6 June 1916 - Returned to Australia 31 March 1919
Military Medal: 'At 4.45 a.m. on the morning of the 8th August, 1918, immediately east of HAMEL, No. 105 R. HAYBALL was in charge of the first party to go forward along the main HAMEL CERISY Road to make repairs necessary to enable guns and traffic to get along at as early an hour as possible, in order to successfully carry on the advance. Sergeant HAYBALL got his party onto the section of the road for which he was responsible, shortly after the Infantry had advanced, although working quite out in the open with no shelter from heavy machine gun fire and hostile shelling. He showed great coolness and courage under most trying circumstances, and so encouraged his men by his personal energy and example that he had the roads in a fit state for all traffic, well up to schedule time, and was to a large extent, responsible for the successful completion of the works.'

Note1888 "Hayball Bros. North Brighton. This firm of builders, timber merchants, sawmill owner and co. consists of Messrs Edwin, Robert & William Hayball, all of Victorian birth, and conducts its business in New St. Brighton. The business of builders was initiated by the late Mr Robert Hayball Snr., from whom it descended to the above-mentioned sons. Some years ago, owing to their enormous consumption of timber, it was deemed necessary to open a timber yard, the business of which has increased to such an extent that there are few if any to equal it in the city of Melbourne. A great number of men are employed in the joiners shop, sawmills, timber yards and upon the numerous buildings in course of erection by this firm. It also does a large business in ironmongery, and owns the Brighton steam saw, moulding and planing mills, also being interested in some of the most extensive up-country sawmills. The office of this firm is connected to the Melbourne exchange by telephone."2

    The whole contrivance adds but 1lb. to the weight of the machine, and has been proved by actual experience to be effective and simple by a host of famous riders, including T. A. Edge of 1,000 mile fame, and such local experts as Geo. R. Broadbent, T. Clement Fisher, J. R. Cathie, and E. H. Lenne. The universal verdict is that it gives no trouble and does not get out of order, while many declare its invention to be second in importance only to that of the pneumatic tyre itself.

  • 28 Nov 1896, THE WORLD ON WHEELS. There was a big crowd at the St. Kilda meeting last Saturday, and though the racing was very fair in quality far too much "stiff" riding prevailed. The heats, too, were most uncomfortably crowded, which resulted in falls more or less dangerous. Indeed, in the last race of the day—the Five Miles International—eight or ten of the competitors came to grief and presented a tangled mess of men and machines. Clem Fisher, the most unlucky rider (next to Dave Kirk), had a very bad fall along with several others, and appeared to be suffering from his arm. It was at first given out that a fracture had been sustained, but all were pleased to learn that it was nothing more serious than a dislocation of the thumb.34
  • 5 Dec 1896, The following are the competitors who qualified themselves for the final of the Austral:—C. B. Kellow. 15yds; R. H. Walne, 20yds; A. Matterson, 100yds; T.C. Fisher, 120yds; E.

  • 11 Mar 1897, That good specimen of a racing cyclist, Clem. Fisher, has made up his mind to retire from the track owing to repeated accidents. Clem was at one time champion of New Zealand, and has been a man to reckon with in his Australian career on the path. Ill luck, however, has dogged him for the past two years, and during that time, whenever a catastrophe occurred, he has been in it. Always riding well, and generally securing a place, he has not won anything of consequence. "Now," says Clem, "I intend to give it best and reduce my medical expenses." He retires with a most creditable record and the good opinion of all his contemporaries of the wheel.36
  • 24 Jun 1897, Mr. T. C. Fisher, better knovn among cyclists as "Clem," has concluded his engagement with the Victorian Sports Co., and accepted a position as traveller for the Austral Cycle Agency.37
  • 24 Jun 1897, CYCLING NOTES. The professional cyclists turned up in force at St. Kilda on Saturday to battle for tinpot trophies (says an Australian exchange). The meeting was a benefit for Dave Kirk, whose spine was dislocated while training last November . . . Kirk, who nets about £30 from the affair, was a most unlucky cyclist. A rider of top rank, he never won a decent race, for he fell every time he started, and took several weeks getting over his injuries each time. And he fell once too often—his tire suddenly slipped from the rim and down he came. After six months in hospital, he comes out on crutches possibly a cripple for life. Also, as his accident took place on the training track, he was robbed of the generous response from the public that a big dramatic smash during a race would have elicited. Clem Fisher, the long Maorilander, was another man who used to fall in nearly every start, but Kirk's misfortune came as a warning, and Fisher now looks on.38
  • 6 Jan 1898, Mr. Clem. Fisher, late of the Austral Cycle Agency and Victorian Sports Co., took his departure from these shores on Monday last per s.s Omi Maru. He goes to the East on important business in connection with the cycling trade. From what is known at present it may be stated that his errand is likely to be very profitable, and by-and-bye we may have further information to communicate in regard to the possibilities of trade in regions "contagious," as the Irishman said, to our own shores. Mr. Fisher came to Victoria with the reputation of a first-class rider— a reputation which be worthily upheld on the Victorian cycle tracks. But, last season, he was the most unlucky racing man in the list. He figured in nearly every big smash; when he survived he was always fourth. Finally he secceeded in hurting himself so seriously in a race at Sydney that he was compelled to withdraw from the path. As a racing cyclist he was popular among his confreres and, as a business man, highly esteemed by his employers and the public. We wish him every succees in his new career.39

  • 31 Jan 1920, Father's OBITUARY. MR T. R. FISHER.
    The death occurred at his residence, St. Clair, yesterday morning of Mr Thomas Richard Fisher, who for many years occupied with conspicuous success tho position of general manager of tho Standard Fire and Marine Insurance Company. The late Mr Fisher was born in the year 1857 at Waltham Abbey, in the county of Essex, England, being the eldest son of the Rev. T. R. Fisher, and was educated at the Old Kingswood School. On leaving this institution he engaged in mercantile life, but in 1854 left the Old Country for Melbourne. Here he remained for a few months, coming to New Zealand, where he was soon after joined by his father and the rest of the family, the home being made in Christchurch. In the year 1861 he came to Dunedin, and carried on business as a merchant and auctioneer, but later, for health reasons, established himself at Nelson, relinquishing the business there at the decline of the West Coast boom. In the year 1877 he joined the Standard Insurance Company as manager at Christchureh, and three years later was appointed general manager, a position he held for over 32 years. He was a prominent figure in insurance affairs, and was the first president of the Fire Underwriters' Association, a post to which he was reelected on a number of subsequent occasions. Though his main energies were devoted to the success of the insurance business, the late Mr Fisher was identified with other concerns, being a director of the Milburn Lime and Cement Company and other institutions. He also interested himself in the work of the Amenities Society, any scheme for the adornment of the city finding in him an enthusiastic supporter.
    Mr Fisher was twice married. His first wife presented him with two children, of whom Mr T. Clement Fisher, of Melbourne, survives. The present Mrs Fisher is the daughter of the late Mr F. B. Hadfield, of Nelson, and there survive him nine sons and two daughters. These are Mr A. H. Fisher, general manager of the Standard Insurance Company; Mr H. H. Fisher, of " Shenley," Albury; Dr W. E. Fisher, of London; Mr N. R. Fisher.general manager of the Jacobs Asbestos Mining Company, Quebec; Mr R. L. Fisher, runholder, North Canterbury; Captain W. W. Fisher, Canadian Highlanders; Mr R. R. Fisher, of the firm Fisher and Gilfillan, Auckland; the Rev. F. V. Fisher, All Saints', Dunedin; Dr G. I. T. C. Fisher, at present in London; Mrs Instone, wife of Captain R. Instone. of the Melbourne pilot service and Miss Florence Fisher, of St. Clair. Mr B. Hill Fisher, the well-known Christchurch accountant and sharebroker, is the only surviving brother of the late Mr Fisher. Mrs Perry, wife of the Rev. Mr Perry, of Onehunga, is his only sister.46
