We try and get an aisle seat if possible to help with mobility for us both (wonky knees!). We had just settled into our seats at Tullamarine (Melbourne) and there was a spare seat b...

Re: Posting Photos

Thanks Ralph. Potteroo Palace is an animal sanctuary just off the A1 Princes Highway between Merimbula and Bega, NSW. Ideal for children to see the animals not in cages (the Dingoes were fenced in).

Re: Anthony Edward Boyd Smith and family

Still trying. But I believe that there were two daughters before they left England, Maureen and Margaret.
Any help appreciated please.

Inventions
