Frank M Kelly

Born in London 1931, Frank was evacuated, for a short time, at the outbreak of the Second World War. Back home, Frank went through some bombing raids; in particular, the ‘Doodlebugs', the flying bomb and, later, the more threatening V2 rockets.

At eighteen years of age, he was conscripted to two years' army service.

He later joined the Merchant Navy in 1957, travelling the world in a tramp steamer.

Frank emigrated to Australia in 1960, where he worked on major dam and road projects and as a kangaroo shooter in the outback, New South Wales. He met his first wife, and with three children to support, got a permanent job with NSW railways.

About Book

Taming the Wide Brown Land by Frank M Kelly is a factual, interesting and detailed story of the life of the ten pound migrants, who moved to Australia from all over Europe after World War Two, as part of the post-war mass immigration policy, set up by the Australian government.
Men, women and families of all nationalities arrived in Australia, more often than not with no homes and no jobs to go to. However, what they did have was the promise of a better life in the new country of Australia, with fantastic weather and amazing opportunity.
This is a great read for anyone interested in modern history and the story and experiences of immigrants in Australia.
