There was an eleven minute NZ film - it starts with a couple of seconds showing the Signal Station light in operation. Uploaded to YouTube on Nov 3, 2011 but deleted due to copyright infringment. Before the MV Rena hit the Astrolabe Reef of Tauranga NZ there was the ANRO ASIA Grounding in Queensland, this TVNZ film segment shows what was done in 1981. with Ian Lockley and RAAF Chinooks

Mandy Brennan - Mac Gosling was the lighthouse keeper on the front light at Caloundra end of Bribie Island he was also my grandfather.
My grandparents lived in Burwah Terrace opposite the bowling green from about 1953 when my grandfather retired. The handwriting on that notes looks very much like my grandmother's writing. from Facebook - Caloundra- The good old days- The 80's
