I found a photo taken by Chris Stonefield on 12 October 1997 when we were placing Bluey’s ashes in the rock face at South Bondi where the “polio pit” (South Bondi Boardriders Club shed) was. We did a paddle out beforehand.

From left to right: myself (Red Ted), Dean Cooke, Jeff (Fish Cake) Stevens, Peter Moscatt and Col (Lizard) Sutherland. Peter was on the Council at the time.

We had the ashes cemented in to the rock face and an engraved plaque was placed over the top. It was originally vandalized but after being replaced and dynabolted is still there. The plaque of course was a “foreign order” from Garden Island Dockyard made from the finest naval bronze.
