Hi Stephanie

I am currently away from home but I have a copy of the Agnew book which I think Jean is referring too. I also have some photos of the old Agnew cemetery. I am booked to have an eye op this coming Friday. However, once I am back to being at home and able to see properly again will look up my reference books and see if I can assist.

google 'and all so far from home' this is a fantastic website that covers many of the towns in the WA goldfields (some that no longer exist).

Good luck with the searching

Kind regards

Jo

It hsd not yet happened. It is TONIGHT at 9.10 WA time (SUNDAY)or a bit
later. If you miss it, I don't know if there is a way of hearing it later
on. You could try 6PR on Monday.

It would be later SA time.

Don't know that it will be all that worth listening to - don't know what
they will ask.

best wishes

Jean Lyneham
