Mr MORRIS —On another matter, on the night of 21 May 1892, 15 players from the Mornington Football Club were drowned on their way home from a football match at Mordialloc when their boat “Process” was wrecked at Pelican Point near Mount Eliza.

Only four bodies were recovered.

The 125th anniversary of this disaster that rocked the small town was observed on Sunday. The story of those 15 young men has been told by author Paul Kennedy in his excellent 2016 book of the same name.

Congratulations to the Mornington & District Historical Society for arranging an appropriate and wonderfully well attended observation of the anniversary of this tragedy.

Legislative Assembly 25 May 2017
