Employees from the Department of Civil Aviation - Former Basingstokes RAF national serviceman, Crispian Andrews, came to his new $A110 a week air traffic controller's job in Adelaide, SA, because he fell over on a Canadian baseball diamond in 1952. His national service unit, undergoing pilot training, held a race around the diamond, and Chris broke his arm when he tripped over third base. "I kept me out of the air for 3 months, and I spent the time helping out with ait traffic control". It was good experience he was able to recount when successfully applying in 1964 for a position with the Department of Civil Aviation, it counted in my favour: Chris said I am glad it did" Crispian Andrews at the job at Adelaide airport.
