Towamba, pictured is Tom Parker with his little
sister, Gwen. I love her dolly! Tom was "spotted"
by some Army chaps after a good game of
cricket in Towamba.
Following their encouragement and with
Una's help, Tom enlisted in the
Permanent Army in 1935.
This was his chance to get away from rabbit
trapping and wattle barking trees.
Country folk were crooked at the Army
for taking their best sportsmen!!
