Ship name / Flight number: QF732

Arrival date: 28/09/1972

I arrived as a BBM on QF732 on 28/9/72 as an 18 year old .

My family had previously emigrated to Australia in 1955 .

My father was an English Doctor and my mother a Scottish nurse.

I spent my primary school years in Perth ,then returned to England in 1966.

Due to my yearning of Living in Oz  I applied at Australia House in London as a 17 year old – but was required to wait until I turned 18 years .

I have been a professional photographer for over 40 years and documented Sydney and Australia from my earlier viewpoint and produced over twelve books on Sydney and Australia .
