“In their stark ignorance they made the most pitiful blunders. But inevitably they learnt the hard way, by blood and sweat and tears. Nothing could daunt their indomitable spirit, and by grim determination, steadfast courage and high endeavour, they triumphed over every obstacle.

In the highest councils of the land, in the business and cultural development of the towns and cities, and in the pastoral and agricultural expansion of the country, the have left a name which shall never perish.”

John Wilmot, Editor
