Captain Peter Kelly
Following a recent obituary of Captain Peter
Kelly appearing in The Leader, Mr Peter Feist of
Angaston, a former senior member of Nuriootpa
High School Cadet Unit has kindly provided some
of his memories of Captain Kelly.
He said, “I got to know Peter Kelly very well
over many years, an association which began at
Nuriootpa High School through the Cadet Unit.
Peter was commander of the Nuriootpa High School
Cadet Unit for probably ten years up to 1974.
“I spent four years in the Cadet Unit until it was
disbanded in 1975. Nuriootpa High School Cadets
was formed in 1950 and held its 25th Ceremonial
Parade on November 14, 1975.
“The parade that day was the final parade held by
cadets in South Australia before the disbandment
of Australian Cadet Units.
“Over that period I got to know Peter very well
and we shared many adventures together and
formed lifelong friendships with others interested
in the cadets at that time. Peter was a great leader
and relished the military role of commanding a
cadet unit, a job at which he excelled.
“I was never taught by Peter outside of Cadets,
but his ability as a language teacher was well
acknowledged both in teaching German to
Australians and English to Germans.
“We lost regular contact after Peter left Nuriootpa
High, but in later years we would catch up and
have a chat.
“It was probably ten years after Peter left
Nuriootpa High that we made the mutual discovery
that Peter was in fact the godfather of my soon
to be wife, Lou. A coincidence that surprised all
involved at the time.
“Lou and I attended Peter’s funeral last year
which proved to be a small but very moving
ceremony at which, amongst other things, his
service to the Cadets was well acknowledged.”

Kapunda Liberals enjoy
At their recent Christmas Dinner meeting,
members of the Kapunda branch of the Liberal
Party heard from Legislative Councillors, the Hon.
Terry Stephens and the Hon. Andrew McLachlan.
Mr Terry Stephens has been a member of the
Legislative Council since 2002, and Mr Andrew
McLachlan successfully gained the eighth seat for
the Liberal Party in the 2014 state election, giving
them the most seats in the Upper House.
Both speakers gave a comprehensive coverage
of their roles within the Upper House and how
that House operates differently to the Legislative
They both expressed satisfaction at how well
they generally worked with the independent
members of the House and the sense of
achievement when good legislation is passed for the
benefit of all South Australians.
Those present also took the opportunity to gain
more information on the current political situation,
both federally and in South Australia, and everyone
expressed disappointment in the result for the
Liberal Party in the recent by-election for the seat
Both speakers emphasised the need for a rein on
government spending and for more effort to be made
towards providing an environment for businesses
to prosper in South Australia, with the reduction of
the many layers of government regulation currently
holding back growth and employment opportunities.
The evening finished with the draw of a raffle
prize for six people to enjoy afternoon tea and a tour
of Parliament House with the Hon. John Dawkins
Hon Andrew McLachlan, Anne Hornsey, Rosemary Neldner and Hon Terry Stephens.
