Inducted into the Shell Rimula Wall of Fame at ReUnion 2005.

Donald (Don) Wall is a pioneer of the transport industry, having driven trucks for around 40 years.  His very first job was driving for Cameron Brothers in 1969 just before they bought the first Kenworth S1 prime-movers into the country from America.

Don has driven mainly Mack and Kenworth prime-movers and has worked primarily in the heavier sectors of the industry driving log trucks, skidders and cattle trucks for the likes of Lindsay Brothers, SD Kelsell, Dan Holmes and the National Parks service.

In 1978, Don started the Grafton Truck Drivers Social Club (GTDSC) and has played a very active role in all its events and functions including the Cavalcade of Trucks and a Truckies Ball.

Don was president of the club for the first six years, and was honoured as GTDSC  patron in 2003.

Married since 1967, Don attributes much of his success to his wife, Rae, who has supported him throughout his trucking career and in his retirement activities that support the road transport industry.
