History of Alands Accountants

1950-51 After the end of World War II, Richard (Dick) William Aland, having returned from active service with the RAAF in England, studied accountancy part time at the University of Queensland. He qualified as an Associate in Accountancy of the University of Queensland in 1950. Dick worked in the Brisbane Gas Company before accepting an accountancy position in Mackay in mid 1950. He left Mackay in July 1951 to accept a position in Dalby with accountant, Eric Hockings.
