Report - Day Student's Quarterly Report, London School of Printing & Kindred Trades, 28 Mar 1923 Document Reg. No: HT 8281

Day Student's Quarterly Report from the London School of Printing & Kindred Trades, dated 28 March 1923. It reports that AG Maclaurin, employed by Messrs T De La Rue Ltd received good grades for his Machine subject.

Archibald Gordon Maclaurin was born in 1904 in Westham London. He trained as a printer and sought work in Australia as there were few opportunities in England; he migrated on the 'Jervis Bay' in 1928. Before migrating he commenced negotiations with the general manager of the Commonwealth Bank Note Printing Branch Fitzroy, who assisted Maclaurin in securing employment at McLaren & Co Pty Ltd Colour Printers in Fitzroy. He then moved to Spicers & Depmont Printers and Stationers before an opening came up for a machinist at the Note Printing Branch, where he worked for 32 years.

He married Constance Duffell in 1934, who had migrated from England on the 'Narkunda' with her parents and brother in 1927. Her father and brother worked for the Note Printing Branch which facilitated their meeting. They had two children, Roger and Jocelyn and lived all their lives in Essendon.
