Fred Worland of Winchelsea, Victoria was reconnected with his past during a recent visit to the Peppin Heritage Centre in Deniliquin.
While looking through a 1940s wool sample book housed in the PHC station office, Mr Worland discovered it had belonged to his former classmate George Borella.
The wool sample book was created at the Gordon Institute of Technology in Geelong, where Mr Worland and his classmates completed a 2-year course from 1944 to 1946.
It was donated to the PHC by Mr Borella’s wife Carol last year.
The Borellas had lived at ‘Coragulac’ in the Gulpa region between Deniliquin and Mathoura for more than 50 years.
‘‘I came in to look at the museum and found my signature in the back of George’s old wool sample book,’’ Mr Worland said.
‘‘We went to the Gordon Institute together where we were taught a range of things including wool classing, farm carpentry and plumbing.’’
The 86 year-old said it was a coincidence to find the book, which brought back many memories.
