    Not sure how to send a comment unrelated to the comments Brad, but what a fabulous story/article in todays West on your family history.
    Plus, moreso, in being chosen as first cab off the rank, in Kent Acott’s interesting series.
    You must be so proud of your historic background and heritage.
    I actually also wiped away a quiet tear, in the midst of the brekkie set at Chalkies, on reading….
    in the the harsh dry bush near Midland, English Rose, Mary-Jane “sat down on her trunks and cried, as she knew she woild never see her parents again”.
    One cannot help but agonize over her trials to come as an early pioneer.

    I was already damp of eye anyway, reading of the horror in Melbourne and loss of those beautiful innocents.

    An autobiography for you next Mayor Pettit.
