Brief Abstract of the Talk
He was here after all (or before). Early. And surprisingly, were so many of his family. The memorial by the highly-regarded angler (with a spare ‘s’). And even Evans! Architects, windows. Is there a role in ACY? The GPO? This part of our history. A 20 year quest, helped by Gillian and Dr Bronwyn. And appreciated. His fate the wrong focus. Much more than that. To eulogise? An overstatement
