I Join the Commonwealth Bureau of Meteorology (continued)
In addition to Hunt the following professional staff was selected from the State Observatories for the Central OfficeR. F. Griffiths from Adelaide, E. T. Quayle of Melbourne, H. M. Jocelyn of Perth and E. Fowles from Brisbane. Clement Wragge, a former officer of the Brisbane Observatory and a man of considerable reputation among the public as a long-range forecaster, was an unsuccessful applicant for the position of Commonwealth Meteorologisthe did not join the new Commonwealth weather staff.
The staff of Clerks Class V was distributed among the various rooms so that these two main functions could be best performed. I found myself in the South Australian room where observations from South Australia and the Northern Territory were dealt with.
