Might post a few pics here if anything interesting comes to light.

Will also experiment with image size just for interest.

I'd shit myself if I found one of these hanging outside my house!

What's the story behind this one?

These are fruit bats, right?

You are correct.

I often see them when I walk the dog at night.
They take off when you walk past a tree they are in.
Their wings make a very distinctive sound unlike any bird makes.

This one got caught in the barbed wire strands on top of a wire fence.
I freed it ( carefully ) and it hung there for a bit and I took the pics before it flew away.
You can see a bit of damage on one wing from the wire.

There have been a few places in Melbourne where these things have become a problem and have had to be dealt with.

Either caught and relocated or culled.

If you got a job with the Victorian Railways and you needed a watch one was supplied. When you left you had to give it back.
They remained the property of VR who also did service and repairs when needed.

Here is a pic of the VR watch repair shop. Photo number VR photo 015A/08

They also did station clocks.

Operations were wound up in the mid 1980's
