An early £10 Pom

John's great aunt Florence Tidder emigrated to Australia after the war. I think she actually pre-dated the "£10 Poms". On the boat she met Mary, from Edinburgh. They became and remained best friends for the rest of their lives and lived near each other in Perth. They made a trip back to the UK about twenty years ago and we took them round the New Forest area.

Amongst Maureen's (John's Mum) huge collection of old photos was this one with the Koala. It was obviously taken by a professional photographer and was very high resolution for its day. I thought Flo deserved a page of her own in the family history album marking her move to Austalia.

The digital kit I used was Raspberry Road's Travelogue. You can see another page of their trip to Ayres Rock HERE
