Peter Woolley sent some amazing photos from a walk in 1947 by his aunt and uncle who were members of the Sydney Rucksack Club.
Trevor Clement sent in this report on their recent workparty at Frank & Jack's Hut in Namadgi National Park
Frank and Jack’s hut in Namadgi is only 2.7kms from the Yankee Hat car park and, as such, received a great number of visitors. The hut is in reasonable condition although there are a number of maintenance issues identified at a joint KHA and ACT PCS site visit in late 2016. As the new KHA caretaker I developed a plan to address the maintenance issues in a phased approach.
The Australian Alpine Club have posted some interesting heritage articles on their website including:
Two Tin Huts & a Heroic Snowy Mountain Crossing [takes you to the AAC's webpage]

* Three sheets of iron on northern verandah have completely gone
* Two sheets of iron on north-east corner of verandah have gone exposing old original shingles
* Chimney upright posts have been snapped off at the ground causing the chimney to collapse and making it unsafe.
Of major concern is three 3 metre lengths of iron have gone to the wind from the main north-west roof over small bedroom, exposing large area of original shingles, a large number of which have unfortunately been lost. The whole main part of the roof including shingles, was also forced up and lifted.
