Wally Barton Visits John and Anne Shaw.

By Anne Shaw

We were very privileged and honoured to have Wally Barton (PRAW) and his daughter Gillian Brown visit us on our farm near Texas in Queensland on the 20th, 21st and leaving on 22nd February. They were visiting from Canada via Buderim (Queensland), where they were based with Wally's son and daughter-in-law. It was so good to catch up with Wally again and to see him looking so well. Many happy memories were recalled of so many people that Wally knew and whom John and I also knew from the good old days. It was lovely to meet Gillian, Wally's daughter. What a small world we live in. Gillian's husband is a doctor in Canada and his family lived near my parents farm "Forest Hill", near Rusape. We knew the Brown family very well many years ago who lived at "Browndean", so more memories were recalled from those days.
