     His was commonly known as Buck. Bruce was born at 100 York Street on 10 February 1903 at Launceston, TasmaniaG. At the time of his marriage Bruce resided at at 100 York Street, Launceston, TasmaniaG.
An article in the Launcester Examiner on Monday 1 November, page 2 reads:
INGLES--OWEN
At the Church of Christ, Margaret street [Launceston], on Saturday afternoon, the marriage was solemnised of Ida, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. Owen, Launceston, and Bruce, second youngest son of the late Mr. D. Ingles and Mrs. Ingles. Pastor N. G. Noble performed the ceremony at three o'clock, and incidental music was played by the organist.
The church was prettily decorated by friends of the bride with Erica, fern, and bowls of arum lilies, and a large wedding bell was suspended. To the strains of “The Wedding March" the bride entered the church, accompanied by her uncle, Mr. W. Hingston, by whom she was given away. She was preceded by her little cousin (Noel Hingston), who was daintily frocked in pale pink crepe de Chine, with frills ao sides. In her hair she wore a silver tissue band, finished with hand made flowers to tone with her frock. She carried a white satin cushion, upon which the bride knelt during the ceremony.
The bride's frock was of palest pink brocaded crepe de Chine, made with straight bodice, finished with tiny pleats, and georgette vest with touches of gold lace. The full length sleeves were trimmed with pleated georgette and gold tissue at the wrist. In conventional design the skirt was draped in front and sides, forming a straight back, finished with many bands of' georgette. Soft georgette fell from the shoulders to the hem at the back, caught at the waist with bows, and with tiny gold tissue bows at the hem. Her beautifully embroidered veil, arranged in capette fashion with sprays of orange blossom, formed a long train. The shower bouquet was of fragrant lily of the valley, roses, and maiden-hair fern, with white satin ribbon streamers. The bride was attended by her sister, Miss Jean Owen, who wore a dainty frock of pink crepe de Chine over mauve. The trimmings were of mauve and toned beautifully with the flower on her black crinoline hat. She carried a bouquet or mauve irises with tinted foliage, and ribbon streamers of mauve. Little Norma Donnelly (piece of the bridegroom) was in attendance as train bearer, and wore mauve crepe de Chine, with pink ribbon streamers falling from the shoulders. In her hair she wore a silver tissue band, with hand-made flowers.
The bridegroom was attended by Mr. Wallace Ingles as best man. After the ceremony Mr. and Mrs. W. Hingston received relatives and a few intimate friends at The Lounge, where the wedding breakfast was held. Mrs. Hingston (aunt of the bride) sore an apple green crepe de Chine frock, with floral trimmings, and a black crinoline hat, showing flowers in autumn colourings on the brim. She carried a posy of golden brown pansies and tinted fern, with brown and gold ribbons. After the usual toasts had been honoured numerous congratulatory telegrams were read by the best man.
Later in the afternoon Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Ingles left by car for the North West Coast. Mrs. Ingles travelled in a navy tailored costume with fuchsia halt, trimmed with pansies to tone. Prior to, the marriage the bride was the recipient of a presentation from the proprietors and staff of the “Examiner" commercial department, and a presentation to the bridegroom was made by the staff of Messrs. Ingles Pty. Ltd..
He married Ida Florence Owen on 30 October 1926 at Church of Christ, Margaret Street, Launceston, TasmaniaG.

     Wallace Ingles was described as 52 kg, 1 m, 50 cm, Fair hair, Grey eyes, age 13. Wallace Ingles was also known as Shack. His was commonly known as Bill. Wallace was born at 19 The Quadrant on 13 December 1904 at Launceston, TasmaniaG. He was christened on 13 September 1905 Presbyterian Church of Australia at Chalmers Church at Launceston, TasmaniaG. He lived on 4 January 1918 at 100 York Street, Launceston, TasmaniaG.
Wallace first obtained his Tasmanian "Licence to drive a Motor Vehicle" whilst living at 100 York Street Launceston. This cost him 3s and he re-newed this annual Licence for 2s.6d. in 1922 and for 5/- on 9th Oct 1923.

On 15th Sep 1924 he was convicted of "Exceeding the Speed Limit", fined 2 pound and awarded costs of 9/-. This is endorsed in his licence. Shack, as he was known then, joined the North Launceston Football Club. Bruce, David and Owen had all been members here before him. We are not sure of his joining date but we do know that he was in the Senior Team for four years, from 1924 to 1927, inclusive.

1924 had its ups and downs after winning the Premiership in 1923. All hope of winning another Premiership went with the loss of the final four matches. However the Australian Carnival was held in Hobart that year and "North" was proud to have four players in the Tasmanian side.

1925 was a better although contoversial year. North had been successful in obtaining the services of H. (Bert) Sutton as their new Captain/Coach who had played with South Melbourne and had coached Albury. With Bert they won their first four matches, however, due to a striking charge Bert Sutton was suspended for six games and North only managed to win two of their matches in this time. With Suttons return they managed to end the season in a position to win the Premiership.

1926 saw the inclusion of Longford Club into the Association; now making four clubs: North Launceston, Launceston, City and Longford. North had a new coach and lost three of their most valuable players. To say the least it was an inconsistent season.

1927 was to be the most successful season in the history of the club, winning 14 out of 16 matches played. North won the Premiership Pennant, the Boags Trophy and the right to hold the Claude James Shield for the second time and the new Ludbrook's Cup for 12 months. Shack was also selected in the State Premiership side to play against Cananore in Hobart which they lost 75 to 92.

Shack had now played football successfully at Club and State level and in two of his four seasons with the club he had been in a Premiership side.

By December 1927 Shack had left Tasmania, so ending his career with North Launceston Football Club.

Family lore suggests that he was signed by VFL side "Essendon". However he was not to see a VFL game after a nasty accident whilist turning a propeller to start a plane. This kicked and damaged his shoulder which forced him out. Due to his, Bill and his daughter Jane barracked for Essendon in the VFL and AFL.. He was the best man at the wedding of Bruce Ingles and Ida Florence Owen on 30 October 1926 at Church of Christ, Margaret Street, Launceston, TasmaniaG. Wallace was employed as a Motor Mechanic on in July 1927, by Hodges & Bond in. He was aged at age 22.
Bill was admitted, by Invitation as a member of the St. John's Lodge. No 2, T.C. at Launceston. This Lodge "shall be subordinate to the Grand Lodge of Antient, Free and Accepted Masons of Tasmania, being No.2 on the Register thereof." His length of membership however is not known; probably until came to Melbourne.
Bill's membership of St John's Lodge
He resided at 94 Wellington Street, on on 24 December 1927. Wallace and Charles Henry Vennell were friends. Charlie was a fitter and turner by trade and from memory they became friends during Bill apprentise years. I am not sure if it was the reason or a coincidence. Eventually Bill and Shiela and Charlie and Gwenny became best of friends and remained so for all their lives. They were always at any Ingles Christmas dinner and after Charlie and Bill died Gwen would attend Christmas dinner with the Clarks (Jane and Andrew and family).
At the time of writing (2018) I still have a hand made copper tube based room lamp made by Charlie. Wallace was employed as a Motor Mechanic on in January 1928, by Brodribb Bros., St.Kilda Rd in at Melbourne, VictoriaG. He was aged at age 23. He resided at 12 Fraser Street, at Middle Park VictoriaG on on 28 June 1928. Wallace was employed as a Motor Mechanic on in September 1928, by Kellow-Falkiner in at South Melbourne, VictoriaG. He was aged at age 23. Wallace was employed as a Motor Mechanic on in May 1929, by J.A.Linacre, Elizabeth St. in at Melbourne, VictoriaG. He was aged at age 24. He resided at 76 Morris Street, at Williamstown, VictoriaG, on on 31 May 1930. Wallace was employed at The Texas Company (Australasia) as a Motor Mechanic at Spotswood Melbourne AustraliaG on 19 June 1930. He tendered his resignation on the 12th May 1931 "owing to your health". This company did not issue personal references above and beyond a statement of employment.
It was therfore interesting to see the Terminal Manager a Mr J T Gray write a person letter on his own.
"I have known the bearer, Mr. W. Ingles for over one year, and have pleasure in stating that he has given every satisfaction in the repair of all kinds of Motor Trucks and Cars that have come under his attention for repair.
His knowledge of Oxy-welding has considerably helped in the various repairs that he has made.
I regret that owing to his own wishes he has tendered his resignation and I wish him every sucess in his new venture.
He was always attentive and intelligent and I understand he is still continuing his studies at the Workman's College."
.
On the 1st Oct 1930, whilst working at Texas Co in Newport, Bill was advised that he had qualified for his "A" Grade Cerificate by the Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce. It was going to cost him 1 pound 1 shilling to obtain it.
Wallace was employed at Stokoe Motors; 559-565 Elizabeth as a Motor Mechanic at Melbourne, VictoriaG, on 2 July 1931. Bill was employed here for only seven weeks. He left there "entirely on his own free will to take up a better position with another firm". At the end of his term here he must have undertaken a Service School course with Ford at Geelong.
.
He married Marie Terese Matheson on 4 June 1932 at St Mary's Catholic Church, Williamstown, VictoriaG. He was 27 at the time and resided at Commercial Road, Prahran whilst she was 24 years old and lived at 64 Osborne St, Williamstown.
Terese's father, Roderick Matheson was listed as a Sea Captain on their Marriage Certificate whilst David Ingles was listed as a Grocer..1 Bill relates that he felt heavily obliged to marry Marie as he had been seeing her for some time. He certainly was not in love with her. He intimated that he had slept with Marie and that this led to his feeling of being honour bound to marry her or face an accusation of Breach of Promise. It was never going to last and was over very quickly; within weeks or months. With his family not fond of Catholics his experiences here reinforced this resulting in a lifelong dislike and mistrust of Catholics and the Catholic Church. He was employed by Commercial Motor Garage P/L(!) On 23 October 1934(!) as the Foreman of their Workshop. Unfortunately, on the 14th December 1934 "Owing to a rearrangement of our staff, it has been necessary to dispense with his services. We wish him every success for the future."

This was a period of over 3 years at Commercial Motor Garage Pty Ltd. Prahran.. Wallace and Marie appeared on the Australian electoral roll of 1939 and listed as living at 272 Latrobe Terrace, Geelong, VictoriaG. Wallace had a listed occupation of engineer and she of home duties. He resided at, at "Roslyn", Latrobe Terrace, Geelong, VictoriaG, on on 3 September 1940. It is thought that this is from where his daughters middle name came; Jane ROSLYN Ingles..
Sheila and Bill met for the first time in 1944.
Major Wallace Ingles in about 1942-3.
He lived in November 1944 at Bandiana, VictoriaG; He was reading "Three Desserts" by C.S. Jarvis who was formerly the Governor of Sinai. Wallace and Marie appeared on the Australian electoral roll of 1946 and listed as living at 272 Latrobe Terrace, Geelong, VictoriaG. Wallace had a listed occupation of service organiser and she of home duties. Wallace was divorced from Marie Terese Matheson in 1950.
He married Sheila Edith Murphy on 25 October 1951 at the Melbourne Registry Office, Melbourne, VictoriaG. In September 1952 Bill recorded his residence as Wangaratta, Victoria on the inside of one of his books, "Highland Dress by George F. Collie". By 1955 Bill noted his location as Launceston Tasmania on the fly leaf of "Bonnie Bits 'o Bonnie Scotland". Wallace Ingles lived in December 1955 at Kayena, TasmaniaG; For Christmas this year he received from "Aunty Bly" a copy of "Early Tasmania" by James B. Walker. He resided at 4/15 Taylor Street, at Oakleigh, VictoriaG, on on 19 September 1966. He and Sheila Edith Murphy lived in December 1969 at 8 Logie Court, Oakleigh, VictoriaG. He resided at 8 Logie Court, at Oakleigh, VictoriaG, on on 1 March 1971.
Wallace wrote a letter to Wallace Ingles dated 7 May 1997. Parts of the letter read: "Dear Bill, Robert Watt told me that you wanted me to drop you a line, so here I go. I often wondered who "Bill" Ingles was, as I knew you as Wallace in our school days, so I had to write to Stewart at Devonport for particulars & your address. ... I have two daughters living in the Brisbane area. Heather, Dawn is the eldest one, her husband deceased. The other one is Margaret, married Bill Conway. Bill brings Dawn and Margaret here to see me every Monday morning, from 10am till nearly 12 noon." Bill replied to this letter but no more is known of ongoing correspondance.2
Wallace died on 7 September 1997 at the Box Hill Hospital, VictoriaG, of "Orthostatic Pneumonia" resulting in "Poor Respiratory Effort" which he had been suffering for some days prior to his death. at age 92. A few years prior to his death, in 1993, Bill was diagnosed with a Metastatic Prostate. This was treated with radiation and had presumably given extended interim relief.

About 18 months before his death he developed a bad skin cancer on his ear which the doctors said they were pleased to remove because "it was a nasty one".

About 9 months before he died Bill complained of a swelling on the side of his face near the cheek bone but not a lot was done about it.

Six months out Bill suffered from a uninary blockage resulting in stays in hospital and catheterization. This blockage was put down to the renewed growth of his Prostate and at the same time the swelling on his face was diagnosed as cancer also; probably a secondary growth from his previous ear problem. This growth was becoming sore and was affecting his eye-sight as it grew through his optic nerve.

The treatment he was receiving made him weak and emancipated resulting in him falling at home as he tried to go from his bed to his commode, unattended. The pain from this apparently simple fall was severe needing an ambulance to hospital. Bill was very frail at this stage and was having difficulty breathing due to the pain and damage from the fall.

Probably due to his shallow breathing, the morphine he was on and his now great frailty Bill passed away due to respiratory failure early in the morning at about 2am.

His offical cause of death is listed as: "Orthostatic Pneumonia - days, Poor Respiratory Efforts - days, Left Chest Wall Pain Following Fall - 3 days; Metastatic Prostate Cancer - diagnosed 1993, Peptic Ulcer Disease Esophageal Strictures". So we're not sure that the're sure as to the cause of death. Just throw in a few of his major problems.
.3 He was cremated on 10 September 1997 at the Necropolis, Springvale, Melbourne, VictoriaG.

Unfortunately she contracted the Bubonic Pneumonia and died. She is burried in the Yea Cemetery.
Phyllis died whilst Rosalia was still in hospital and Shiela's grandmother, Matilda, was to die just 9 days later on.. She was christened Church of England.

To start the story at the end, the following was written about Shiels Nursing career in the Chadstone Progress on Wed, March 17, 1976, page 13. "Nursing staff, ex-nurses, the Board of Management, domestic staff and babies she delivered all helped Matron Shiela Ingles of Oakleigh District Community Hospital celebrate her retirement.

She worked at various places over her time as a nurse, Meeting her future husband (Major Wallace Ingles) whilst working as a nurse at the Albury Woollen Mills during WWII. Her final role was as Matron at the Oakleigh community hospital (below.)1

Sheila's Original Nursing Certificate

She married Wallace Ingles on 25 October 1951 at the Melbourne Registry Office, Melbourne, VictoriaG. As of 25 October 1951,her married name was Ingles. Sheila and Bill had a second child. However late in the pregnacy the baby died in the uterus due to complications of the Rh blood issues Sheila had. The male baby was eventually still born and they named him David. No further records were kept in those days. Sheila Edith Murphy and Wallace Ingles lived in December 1969 at 8 Logie Court, Oakleigh, VictoriaG. Sheila Edith Murphy witnessed the death of Jane Roslyn Ingles on 15 May 2008 at Albury Base Hospital, Albury, NSWG; Jane died as a result of an unexpected subarachnoid haemorrhage (bleed into brain). She was being treated for a Non-hodgkins Lymphoma which she had had for about 5 years. Her current round of Chemotherapy (IVAR) for had reduced her platelet count to zero. She suffered an infection and was in Critical Care where her observational signs appearred to indicate that she was getting over the infection. Unfortunately during a sleep she must have sufferred the haemorrhage. Support was withdrawn and she passed away comfortably, asleep and without pain.
Sheila underwent a heart valve replacement on 4 April 2011. This was a brand new and experimental proceedure of inserting an artificial valve up through the groin, letting it "snap" into position in an instant. This was still in a test phase but was considerred a success as Shiela lasted longer than the stipulated 30 days that was used as a yardstick of success.
Sheila Edith Murphy died on 12 August 2012 at Hedley Sutton Community, 19 Canterbury Road, Canterbury, Melbourne, VictoriaG, at age 93. She died at 2:22pm with Andrew and Dianne by her side. She had sufferred an "incident" in her sleep the previous night and never regain consciousness. This was considered a welcome relief after declining health. Over the latter couple of years she had become bed-ridden, had increasing levels of pain and decreasing vision. She was blind in the left eye and on constant heavy levels of pain relief. She had often expressed that she did not want the life style she had and that her time had come. She had lived to see the arrival of her beloved great grandson, Lachlan, whom she absolutley adored. He was the major bright point in her life and she wanted to go. Her end was peacefull and whatever the incident was it took place in her sleep and she never awoke.
Her estate was probated on 12 November 2012; Determination proved in The Supreme Court of Victoria, Probate Jurisdiction.2
