1932 Ulgundahi Island Maclean, New South Wales
1944 Kinchela Boys Home
On 28th March 1944 I was placed under the control of the Aboriginal Welfare Board (AWB) through the Children Court in Sydney. My two brothers Gustave and John and my six sisters Amy, Adelaide, Rita, Valerie, Dorothy and Patricia were split up & placed in different homes. My brothers and I were admitted to Kinchela Boys Home at Kempsey and my sisters were split up between Bomaderry Children’s Home and Cootamundra Girls Home.
