And lastly, an observation from Byron Deveson:
I note that a “listening post” was established in Glenelg only a couple of hundred yards from 90a Moseley Street. I also note that the contents of the NAA Archives 1949 file dealing with the Communist Party of South Australia Glenelg Branch appear to have been returned to ASIO.
