I have lived locally (Rainbow) all my life. I used to be a farmer and now I am a teacher. I teach a lot of music, so when the bats turned up it was obvious to me what they could be. Bat 1 is a Lager Phone (the collection of stubby tops took a long time), a modern Australian percussion instrument. It is played by tapping it with part of a wicket and on the ground. Bat 2 is a two-string slide guitar. It is constructed from using old bails for tuning knobs, a bridge and a saddle. I have called it the “Williminator” after Willo Industries.
