    Occupation c1932  Narrabeen NSW Find all individuals with events at this location 
    Post Master, Narrabeen NSW. After his marriage, about May 1932, Kindor requested that he take full charge with the title of Post Master and the mail and telephone sections became completely separated from the rest of the business. So Kindor became the first full Post Master of Narrabeen NSW until the office was moved to another part of the town. After that he was Post Master for 11 years at the Balmoral Naval Depot until his retirement.
