i hope you dont mind me posting this here

My uncle was a child migrant sent to Australia in 1952, whislt doing some research about him, i came across this book,

it was writtern by  David Crisp,one of  my uncles friends, it makes interesting reading for anyone who has had a family member sent out there,, or for anyone for that matter, to learn more about what actualy happened to these young children

theres a face book discussion group if anyone is interested!/home.php?sk=group_160852127295691&ap=1

The book covers life in Nazareth House Ophanage in Bishopston Swansea, the journey on the SS Ormonde to Australia, and the harsdhips endured at Casteldare and Clontarf boys homes
