My father Harold Brassey Allen was ground staff for TAA for 25 years.

He met my mother, Betty Fay Holland, when she was flown down from Sydney to Essendon Airport to train as a TAA Air Hostess in the late 40s.

Love blossomed, they married and had three beautiful children.

I’m very proud of their history.
