Lawrie Hussin.

The late Lawrie Hussin started work as an apprentice Printing Machinist two months after the outbreak of World War II.
It wasn’t long before he was involved in the printing of ration cards for the war effort.
His early memories of the “Guv” were made more pleasant by the introduction of female machine feeders during those war years.
Lawrie left the “Guv” to join the Australian Navy and after over three years in the service was discharged in 1946.
On arriving back at the Office he finished his apprrenticeship and created some havoc amongst those female feeders.
But alas, the girls were replaced by tech change (now, that sounds familiar).
Lawrie was a keen sportsman playing lacrosse, tennis, squash and golf.
He also played cricket for the South Australian Printing Office against the “Vics” in some of the early games of the Cricket Club.
Lawrie was a West Torrens barracker and was always hoping to see the day when the “Eags” would fly high again.
Probably, Lawrie’s greatest love was being a world globetrotter. He visited such countries as Japan, Bali, Thailand and America.
But, he always loved coming back to his home in Adelaide. Lawrie was a well respected member of our Print Room.
