Chester Hare met his wife Rose during the war.
She cut his hair at home, along with many
other Australian soldiers, as her civic duty.
For King and Country.
Rose opened a hair salon after the war and
Chester visited each week for a cut.
Short back and sides please Rose.
He was her only male customer.
He brought a single rose for her each week,
lovingly grown in someone’s garden.
Chester was in love with Rose.
Rose had to be persuaded. But it didn’t take long.
Chester and Rose got married.
During childbirth and other busy days,
Chester helped in the salon, eventually
becoming as creative as Rose with his
cutting, curling and coiffures.
Nine children later, they moved to Australia.
Rose’s Salon lived on as a memory in
their hearts and a story in their family.
Their children had many children, Rose and Chester
grew old and everyone lived happily ever after.
