By MICHELLE ROBINSON A Birkdale icon and historian never moved away from the street he was born on. Gladstone Durham QSM died in North Shore Hospital last year, aged 91, after spending his whole life on Salisbury Rd in Birk- dale. Mr Durham, or Glad'', had a wealth of know- ledge about Birkdale and his work in the com- munity was honoured with a Queen's Service Medal. He was born on his family's property in Salisbury Rd, Birkdale ,in 1919 and went on to attend Birkdale Primary and Northcote College. After school he trained as a mechanic, then at age 17 he became a reservist for the NZ Army and was placed in the Army Service Corps when World War Two broke out. But a knee injury from playing football meant he could not serve over- seas. He later worked on the railways and helped at his father's market gar- den, working long hours taking Birkdale's fruit and vegetables to the city markets and returning with general goods. One time he single- handedly carried an elec- tric stove from the road over a muddy section to the front terrace of a new house in Beach Haven. He then worked as a bus driver for Birken- head Transport where he got to know his passengers in the tight- knit community. He married Betty Watson in 1943 and they spent 67 years together and had a son Stuart and daughter Sandra. Mr Durham joined the Birkdale School com- mittee while his children attended there and he stayed involved for at least 49 years. He drove the school bus on many trips including to Mt Rua- pehu, Matakana Island and Paihia. Mrs Durham joined him on the beloved school camps where she would help in the kitchen. Mr Durham helped form the Birkenhead Historical Society and was treasurer for years up until his passing. He also convened weekly indoor bowls sessions at the Birken- head RSA. Mr Durham is survived by his wife and children and his work at the Birkenhead Histori- cal Society in Mahara Ave.
