William Galton
William Galton was born in 1919. He joined the Army in 1941 and had active duty in Borneo fighting the Japanese. He has fond memories of life in Fairfield.

when Wirth's circus came to town they used to have all their train had that full length of the station is where all the actors and workmen lived. And they'd bring all the other stuff in by carting elephants and all this business and they used to have them over in the park. And they lived in these railway carriages that they had converted into living quarters.
