On their own - Britain's child migrants

Squatter's hat - the quintessential Australian accessory

traditional wide brimmed Australian hat

David acquired this squatter’s hat for his first position at Mayrung farm. ‘Before and after’ promotional photographs of Little Brothers often contrasted pasty British youth with bronzed, Akubra-hatted Australian farm lads.
