Funeral procession after 1965 Bulli disaster

1965 bulli mine disaster funeral

The picture, published on the front page of the Tribune on Wednesday 17 November 1965, shows men and women, headed by Miners’ Federation leaders, marching in solemn procession through Bulli to the funeral of one of the four men killed in a mine fire. Fred Hunt, Harry Smith, Jack Murray and Bob Stewart were trapped and killed in the Bulli Colliery fire on November 9 1965. The picture, looking south, was taken on the Princes Highway, just north of Hospital Road. In the distance can be see the old Bulli Council Chambers.
