17. Cooee Koala & Bird with fan. I think the waistcoat came with the Cooee Koala costume and so did the wire padding so the koala would have a bit of a tummy but the "bird" used that and a few extra to make a second costume. I don't know who was wearing it and Tony can't remember either. Helen Romeo, 27/09/21   (BMC archives, unknown photographer).
