Early memories of moving around with mum and dad following work, her cows roaming on the creek, watching Queenie the elephant unloading the circus tent from the train, and much more. Memories that bring the past to our lives.

Bill Taylor. Bill joined the army in Hamilton at seventeen. Bill always wore his hat tilted to the side, which was not allowed. Not that it stopped him! Jean first met Bill when he came back from Darwin at 21 years of age. She thought he was a "big stuck up thing!"
