I have a lot to be thankful for in mum’s decision to return to Oxley Island as it was there that she met my father Geoffrey Newman when he came to visit a friend in 1943/44 who was the local headmaster. Geoff was a returned serviceman, he had been a Rat of Tobruk and was injured and repatriated in 1943. Dorothy was attracted to Geoff as he was both good fun and jovial, personality traits that they shared in common.

Dorothy and Geoff wed on 5th October 1946 at the Presbyterian Church Taree.

Portion of a message from Wendy Oldmeadow forwarded by Lyn Fullerton.:

"Ken's daughters especially wanted a visit to the farm in memory of Kenneth, who passed away on 25th October (pancreatic & liver cancer). He was born very close to me - just 10 days older than I am, and he was a good mate of Bruce's and a good nephew to Dad and Dot. Sad to be leaving this earth at 54 years of age, but at least his family are grown up. His youngest turned 21 the day before he died."
