Royal Life Saving Society. [1] ANNUAL DISPLAY. (23 March 1912)

The Western Australian branch of the Royal Life Saving Society held their annual public display at the Barrack-street jetty on Saturday afternoon. The event created much public interest, and there was a large gathering of spectators on the river frontage.
Lieut.-Col. Campbell (president of the branch) delivered a brief address in which he outlined the objects of the Society and referred to the work carried out in this State.
He pointed out the valuable instruction which was being given to the children of the community, stating that about 2,000 young persons had passed through the hands of the instructors, of the Society, including many from the orphanages.
The afternoon's display was under the direction of Sergeant Smith, the chief instructor, who referred to the work carried out by individual members of the Society during the year. He made particular mention of several plucky rescues, particulars of which were given in Saturday's issue.

The events of the day, which were watched with interest, included an exhibition of different methods of life saving, fancy diving, a rescue exhibition by a police team fully dressed, object diving, high diving, life-line exhibition by the Ocean Beach Boy Scouts. fancy costume display, and a water polo match.

During the afternoon the awards granted by the Society for the current season were distributed by His Excellency, the Governor. (Sir Gerald Strickland KCMG)
