Note: The reports have been scanned in as written. I have included the height and distance indications, e.g.:
(1000'- 12m.- 4.45p.m.)
which read as follows: height in feet - miles for the day - time.
On Sunday, March 9th. 1947, with a large party from the Launceston Walking Club, I went per ‘bus via Upper Blessington to the end of the motor road on the Legge's Tor route. Leaving the bus (2200’) at 10.35 a.m., the first hut was reached (3800’ - 1¾m. – 11.15 a.m.) and, resuming after dinner at 1.10 p.m., we made Legge’s Tor (5160’ - 4m. 2.5 p.m.). Clouds were abundant although Flinders Island in the north east and Anson's Bay in the east were visible, as well as a host of interesting subjects much nearer at hand. The journey home was uneventful.
