Our Mum - a child migrant. Government, religious societies, you deprived us of our blood relatives. Never, ever let this happen again.

As the last children were shipped out as late as 1967 how come it was done so secret,I now live in Australia and know just how some of those children were used and abused this is the worst thing I have heard of, any person who is still living should be brought before the courts

I am so glad to hear that child migrants can have a say.I was a former child migrant,I left London in 1956,it was a traumatic time. Placed into a home in WA. But the main thing, we can now tell the world not to ever do it again.
