MotherMabel Cairns b. 27 May 1879, d. 8 Jun 1955
     Herbert was born on 21 January 1916 at East Brunswick, Melbourne, Victoria. His was commonly known as Herb. From an Interview with my Uncle Herb:
"Herb attended Scotch College until he attained his leaving certificate.
He then worked partime at Brickworks, like Russell. After some time of working there he reached a stage where he could not see his dad retiring from the brickworks and could not see himself staying on because he did not believe that father and sons should work together he decided to leave and join the RAF. Mavis's father helped here being a Brigadier.
He had the interview and recieved a letter back saying that all positions in the Air Force were full but they would be pleased to offer him a Cadetship at Point Cook. During the Cadetship the War started. Herb's course was shortened by 2 months and he Graduated.
After Graduation Herb undertook a navigation course and was on a ship to take him to England and a Sunderland Squadron when the Air Force found out that his hobby was photography. They took him off the ship and sent into aerial photography where he became a photographic pilot.
One of Herb's early jobs was involved in photographing every known landing strip in Australia from paddocks and grass strips upwards.He was involved in survey flying and was took part in surveying the roads from Alice Springs to Darwin and the Kiewa Valley.
He was then rested from survey work and became the CO at Nhill until transferred to Bairnsdale to undertake another navigational course. Transferred to Sale Herb did a conversion course onto Beauforts before being transferred back to survey flying. Apparently the CO there, called Laws, had a heart attack or some other condition which precluded him from flying and they needed an experienced photographic pilot. His squadron then moved to WA and undertook coastal survey work involving from Albany to Darwin which had previously never been surveyed.
Moving back to the east coast he was at Rockhampton when the Americans entered the war and was seconded to the Americans Army Air Force and assisted in surveying for their Artilary Flying where he received a set of American Flying Wings.
Then he was called up to Cairns to survey mountain, Bartle Frere, the highest mountain in Queensland because the Americans kept crashing into it. It turned out to be 150 feet higher than shown on the maps. The locals new this and took it into account but the Americans had not yet found this out.
Then sent to Williamstown to do a conversion course onto Mosquittos and was then made CO of 87th Photographic Recon Squadron.
Sent to Melbourne to run the opertations of Southern Area. It was here he met Bernice who was a WAAF at the time. Apparently Bernice and other WAAFs in the outfit climbed at seven foot wall to get to the records to see if Herb was married.
Herb technically left the Air Force in 1946 but was not actually with the Air Force for some time before this because he had a hugh amount of annual leave, long service leave etc accumulated. He was setting up Gambles Aereated Waters whilst in this long service leave period.
The main reason for him leaving was the continual movement around Australia. At that time two years was the longest period at any one place. He had found Bernice, wished to settle down and to quote his own words could not see myself saying "Yes Sir", "No Sir" for the rest of my life.
Herb considers himself to be a very lucky person. Thirty five men graduated from Point Cook and only five made it through the war. He survived two plane crashes as well.

(His brother, Russell was chief pharmacist for the Air Force. Russell was in the Citizens Air Force and was a photographer. He applied for a flying instruction course. He was a pilot in a formation in which General Blaimey's son involved. There was a planned manouver, not involving Russel's plane, which went wrong resulting in two of the planes hitting and crashing. Coloney Blaimey's son was killed. Mum (Mable) would not allow Russell to continue. He finished up an observer.
Russell was eventually called up to re-join the Air Force but Victor Hurley who was the Air Forces Chief Medical Officer, and lived in Murrumbeana, knew that Russell was a senior employee of May & Baker. He appointed Russell to the post of Chief Pharmacist.
Russsell developed his high blood pressure during the war with all the pressure and stress of his war time job.)

He and Betty Muriel Gill were engaged on 18 December 1942. The following was recorded in the Argus; Friday 18 December 1942, p6.
GILL-GAMBLE.-Betty, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. H. Gill, Summit Drive, Eaglemont, to F-L. H. A. Gamble. R.A.A.F., youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Gamble. 483 Neerim road. Murrumbeena.
Details of when or why the engagement was called off are not known to me..


Herb started trading under the Business Names Act as Gambles Aereated Waters Company at 404-406 Neerim Road Murrumbeena. This activity was his as Sole Proprietor whist the property was in the joint names of H.J. Russell Gamble and H.A. Gamble. It was proposed in 1948 "to clarify the above position and to implement the original intention of forming the business into a Proprietary Limited Company in which H.J.G. and H.A.G. would be shareholders holding the issued Capital in the ratio of H.A.G. Snr [H.J.G.] 1; and H.A.G. 2." It was called Gambles Aereated Waters Pty. Ltd. and acquired the Plant and Stock of the previous company plus the Land on which it stood. Herbert Alexander Gamble and Bernice Murray Murton were engaged on 1 April 1948 at Victoria; From "The Argus" 1st April 1948
"ENGAGEMENT of interest to town and country friends is that of Bernice Murton and Herbert Gamble. She is eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs E. Murray Murton, of the National Bank, Euroa, and her fiance the youngest son of Mr and Mrs H. J. Gamble, of Neerim rd, Murrumbeena. Bernice, who is an old girl of MLC, is living in Melbourne at present, and her fiance, an old Scotch Collegian, served in the RAAF as a squadron-leader." He married Bernice Murray Murton on 8 October 1948 at Scotch College, 1 Morrison Street, Hawthorn, Victoria.
From "The Argus":
At Littlejohn Memorial Chapel, Scotch College, the marriage was celebrated of Bernice Murray, elder daughter of Mr and Mrs Murray Murton, of Elwood, and Herbert Alexander, younger son of Mr and Mrs H. J. Gamble, of Murrumbeena. The Rev Gordon Powell officiated.
The bride wore a cream lace and tulle gown encrusted with pearls on
the neckline and yoke. Her tiered veil was caught with a half coronet of pearls, and she carried a bouquet of trailing cream orchids.
Bridesmaids were Misses June Murray Murton and Betty M. Gamble, who wore powder-blue velvet frocks with matching bonnets caught at the back with tulips. Messrs Russell Gamble and MacMurray Murton attended the bridegroom, and a reception was held at the Grosvenor..
Herbert died on 28 August 2000 at the Monash Med Centre, Clayton, Melbourne, Victoria, of a "stroke" at age 84. Herb suffered a stroke at his home in Murrumbeena on Sunday 27th August. He was taken to the Monash Medical Centre by never regained consciousness.. He was cremated on 1 September 2000 at the Necropolis, Springvale, Melbourne, Victoria. His funeral was held on 1 September 2000 at St Giles Uniting Church, Murrumbeena, Melbourne.
Herbert Alexander Gamble - Eulogy
1/9/2000
Delivered by Catherine Elizabeth Rhodes (grand-daughter)

"My lovely mother once said that when these things happen, they remind you of the fragility of life, but more than that, it reminds you of their life.
Herb, A.A. Gamble, or Papa as he was affectionately called by his grandchildren has had such a great impact on so many different people, and in so many different ways, that finding somewhere to start this tribute to him was as difficult as trying to find an appropriate artillery range at 25000 feet.
His achievements are extensive at all levels, from family, to personal, to social, along with the military. So extensive that I feel that no matter how exhaustive my efforts are at trying to include everything, there is no question that someone, somewhere has been touched by Papa that we still don't know about.
I stand before you this morning in an attempt to do him justice, by ensuring that I portray, to the best of my ability, exactly how much of a courageous, committed and respected serviceman he truly was. As well as illustrating how much he loved and cared for his family, devoting endless time and energy to our happiness.
Herbert Alexander Gamble, RAAF service number 499, was a generous and distinguished man, who always enjoyed a good sense of humour. Papa entered the permanent Royal Australian Air Force on January 16 1939 as an air cadet and started what was to become elaborate career as a surveyor and pilot after 10 months of training at his first posting on 5 November.
Even though he wore blue, he was assigned a number of missions for the Army and Navy Survey Corps, including surveying the area from Canberra to Wagga and part of the road from Alice to Darwin. He then became the CO (Commanding Officer) of the Survey flight school of photography in Canberra, before being posted to Nhill as Chief Flying Instructor in 1942.
The aircraft he flew at this point in time was the Anson aircraft at heights of 10,000 to 17,000 feet for photographic purposes for 3-4 and a half hours at a time. He did so for 2 years before the medics informed the Air Board that these heights, crew should have access to oxygen, so planes were subsequently fitted out.
By 1943 he was on detachment to Rockhampton and Cairns, attached to the US Army, surveying 20 areas for Army forces, photographing artillery areas, ranges and camp sites. Papa's next major assignment was to survey the coastline from Albany to Exmouth Gulf called the "Great Western Survey", before being posted to East Sale and the Aviation School to do 10,000-20,000 altitude chamber tests.
On 1 November 1944 he was posted to Darwin as the CO to form the first mosquito Squadron in Australia, his precious 87 Photo Reconnaissance Squadron. The area they surveyed included the Coca Island, Java and Timor. These operational flights took place at altitudes of 25,000-38,000 feet and would take anywhere between 4 ½ to 9 hours.
The 87 Squadron did the pre-invasion photography for the Battle of Burma, due to their skill and excellent training (not to mention their esteemed CO), it was these men that possessed the courage to fly at the exceptionally low altitudes required to gather the necessary information.
Six months later he crashed on take off, losing one engine and was posted to 1 P.D. Following this, his posting was as CO ops room Headquarters Southern Area. Despite crashing twice and receiving a shrapnel wound, he was not deterred from his course of duty and persisted relentlessly before discharging after 7 years of service as a Wing Commander[1] on September 16, 1946, but not before torching with much delight, one of the mosquitoes that crashed.
I know we can all recall occasions where Papa has told us stories about his days as an officer in the Royal Australian Air Force. Other than the births of his four children, thirteen grandchildren and the day that he married the most loving and beautiful woman, the woman who stole his heart and "the red-head that he'd searched the world for" our Nene, his Bernice. These days, albeit them during such a tragic period of time, were some of his greatest and most memorable.
The phrase, "once a military officer, always a military officer", could not have been more accurate than in the case of my grandfather HA Gamble. It has been said by the greatest military officer of recent years, Major-General Peter Cosgrove, that to be a good officer, a person requires four values: courage, compassion, communication and humility. All of these adjectives could be used to adequately describe Papa's personality, which leaves no doube in my mind that he would have been a brilliant Air Force Officer, and trusted colleague.
Papa was a loving man, devoted to his family and willing to help everybody. Those that know him are aware of his quick sense of humour and the never-ending cheeky comments.
The last time I saw Papa was in Canberra, as my amazing grandparents had driven up form Albury to say hello after an EDA function. There aren't many grandparents that would do that. Papa had this cane, which was the first time I'd seen it, and probably the first time I realized he was actually an old man. Because even though he was 84, he never looked or behaved like it. This time was no different, I have this image of him walking along and swinging this blooming cane in the air and giggling. Actions that are reflective of his energetic personality.
He was a man that on every wedding anniversary would repeatedly demonstrate his undying commitment to the lady of his life, by driving to Tesslers and buying a tulip for every year that they had been married. I was lucky enough to be with them for 50.
When Papa past away, it was suggested to me that I write a letter to him, expressing my feeling and exactly what he meant to me. But like everyone in my family, I can say that we don't possess enough words to express just how much he meant to us, nor we do have enough paper and ink to cater for the onslaught of emotions and lovable memories that he has provided for us, for so many years.
I'm sure we all share similar memories of Papa, of the gap between his front teeth, of his round belly, and of that famous moustache that would tickle your cheek as your gave him a kiss or a cuddle. I'm sure that every time another grandchild was born, he was there thinking; "great, another one I can send up the apricot tree", of on a Saturday night, checking the tattlsotto numbers to see if he'd won.
His compassion for life and dedication to work resulted in wonderful friendships. Friends that are here today to say farewell and whom we thank for helping us make his life as grand as it was.
He was proud of each member of his family for very different reasons and unique achievements, as we were of him.
If we can achieve half as much as you have Papa, we'd be doing awfully well. He wasn't a tall man, standing at only 5 foot 41/2 inches, but what he lacked in height, he made up for in nobility, selflessness and love.
You were a loving husband, a father, a grandfather and a friend.
Papa was an officer and a gentleman in the Royal Australian Air Force, and will remain a tribute to his most cherished institution.
Once again you are with your Comrades in Arms and your brother Russell, whom you can spread your wings with and watch over all of us, like you have always done.
I wear your medals today with honour and pride, you mean so much to us. We strive to make you proud and know that you'll be with us forever.

Lest we forget"

FatherJames Murphy
MotherMary Green
     The birth place of John is stated as London on his Australian marriage certificate, County of Waterford on Charles' Birth Certificate and Dublin Ireland on his own death Certificate however he is believed to have lived in County Cork Ireland. I have chosen Waterford Ireland as he himself provided the information for his son Charles' birth registration and signed for it.
He was thought to have worked in the Waterford glass factory although this could have been his father who, according to John's Marriage Certificate, was a "Plater".
According to family recollection (Joyce) John was originally married in London to Rachel Cohen. Rachel was Jewish and this caused some family tension. It was because of this tension that John eventually emmigrated to Australia to separate himself from his family.
John appears to have originally immigrated in Tasmania where he stayed for about 5 years before coming to Victoria.
John was a Roman Catholic but his second wife Emma was not. She raised the children in the Protestant faith.
They lived some way out of Glenburn in Victoria, possibly at "Tommy's Hut". Here he operated a "Wine Shanty" and owned some property.
He used to give his children some money to walk to Glenburn to buy some "Holy Water" for himself. The family story goes that Charles used to pocket the money and fill the bottle up with water from King Parrott Creek.
There is also some discrepancy in John's age at death. On his Death Certificate he should have been 80 years of age but is stated as 83. This could mean a different birth date than that recollected or a mixed up date by his family on his death.
He is stated to have lived for about 5 years in Tasmania and 50 years in Victoria. That means that he must have arrived in Tasmania about 1852 and further work needs to be done to clarify all this. John was born circa 1831 at Waterford, Ireland.
He married Rachel Cohen at London, Middlesex, England. John was employed as a Baker at Melbourne, Victoria. He married Emma Eliza Taylor on 3 September 1860 at 37 Gore Street at Collingwood, Melbourne. 37 Gore Street Collingwood would appear NOT to be a church and his marriage was solmenised by Samuel Allen "Registrar of Marriages". References to any religion are crossed out on his marriage certificate and this would fall into place with his Catholic upbringing and having been married previously.. John Murphy was a "splitter" in the Shire of Whittlesea in 1879. John was a Farmer. John died on 11 September 1907 at Woodburn, Yea, Victoria, of Senile Decay and "Asthemia".. He was last seen by hist doctor quite some time before on 30th April that year.. His obituary in the the Yea Chronicle, Thursday 12 September 1907, page 3 reads as:
DEATH OF A PIONEER
MR JOHN MURPHY
Mr John Murphy, one of Victoria's early pioneers, died at his residence, Woodbourne,on Wednesday last, at the advanced age of 83 years. Mr Murphy was a native of Dublin, Ireland. At the age of 28 he emigrated to Australia, arriving at Tasmania in 1852. He was a baker by trade, and followed that occupation in Launceston for some years. The outbreak of the gold-fields at Ballarat and Bendigo attracted him to Victoria, and he followed gold mining for many years, making plenty of money and spending it freely, as was characteristic of all miners in the early seventies. When tired of mining he took to shearing, and for many years was a regular shearer in Victoria and N.S.W. In 1880 he selected the land at Woodbourne, on which he died. He has not been seen in Yea for many years. He leaves a family of seven sons and two girls, the most of them resident in the Yea district. Mrs Murphy only died in November last, and was buiried in Kew Cemetery, Melbourne, and with the object of burying his remains besides those of his wife, they will be sent to Melbourne by to-night's train.

His body was interred on 13 September 1907 at Kew, Melbourne, Victoria, at the Boroondara Cemetry.
