The Ten Pound Pom is a project I undertook in 2017 to document stories from my grandfather's life. Over the years he has told us bits and pieces from his interesting journey, but none of it is documented anywhere.
I thought this a great shame as he seems to have lived nine lives: from growing up in Kentish Town, being evacuated to London during the second world war, sailing around the world with the Merchant Navy, meeting my grandmother on the Hobart wharf in 1953, and later marrying her before moving to Tasmania as a ten pound pom.
The following stories are extracts from the final book.
