From Our Contribution


Brief History

On 31 Jul 1940 the school was established in premises in Mounts Bay Road, Perth. The next day the first 76 trainees arrived and began courses. Courses were generally of 16 weeks duration, with only two courses running at the same time using service personnel and civilian staff from the Perth Technical College.

On 23 Aug 1945 all basic trainee fitter courses ceased, and the unit was disbanded on 27 Sep 1945.
