The First Step

The greatest journey starts with a step.

 

This is the form that Mum and Dad completed in order to apply to come to Australia in February 1963. They were 22 years old at the time. I wasn't even a year old, and Mum was pregnant with my sister, Karen.

 

Click on the thumbnails below to see any of the 32 pages in the application.

 

If you were a Ten Pound Pom, you can order your own set of documents. Just go to the Australian National Archives (naa.gov.au/) and follow "record search" links.
