Killed in Cairo Riots 1952

On arrival in Sydney, Circular Quay,
my family was sent by
train (during the night) to Bathurst for 'distribution'.
Dad: "When we arrived at Circular Quay
we were taken to
Central Station and we were put on the steam train to an ex-air force
centre at Bathurst throughout the night. We stayed in the camp at
Bathurst (se photo below) and were 'distributed' to various camps throughout
Australia. Most of us didn't know how far away these places were.
Some were sent to Adelaide and some to Melbourne. A lot of the
migrants were complaining about being taken to Bathurst and then
Millie and Bob went on a bus to Melbourne. (They didn't
have any children at the time.) Kit and Bob Ferris and their little girl
also went to Melbourne. They eventually returned to UK. We never saw
them again but always kept in touch by mail.
