The Thick Blue Line, GET Publishing
Light-hearted memories of Ian's policing career from the 1960s and 1970s. The time of indelible pencils - not computers, of push bikes - not cars.
From Lucker Street to Wongawilli, GET Publishing
Ever since the First Fleet set sail for Australia back in 1787 with its motley crew of sailors, marines and prisoners, that huge desert continent has exerted an influence over our families in Northern Britain. Some followed the transported prisoners looking for gold; to escape the debtor's prison: others - too many - to escape the TB, deprivation and hopelessness after the 1st World War. Successive generations followed until the 1970s; followed to the 'Lucky Country' which still offers one thing above all else: Hope - Hope for a better future.
The stories of our ain' folk, their journeys, the people, the places are all to be found in From Lucker Street to Wongawilli.
