Do you know Charlie Hosking, aka Charlie Like?

2499 Ted Egan singerLETTER TO THE EDITOR


Sir – I am writing a book and wish to make substantial reference to the late and great Charlie Hosking, better known as Charlie Like.


Charlie ran a trucking business, carting cattle mainly and was a partner of Lil Finniss, who ran Don Thomas’s Store in Todd St.


If anybody has a photo, or any recollections of Charlie, could they contact me at 0427 849 555 or email


Many thanks and best wishes to readers for 2018.

    Can’t believe that I have had nil feedback. Charlie Like was such an identity.
