A night of terror
by Alan Barham
(Port Macquarie, NSW)
As a lot of people on this site, Christmas Eve and Morning 1974 was a memory that I will never forget. My family (George, Nancy, Patricia and myself) lived in Buchanan Tce Nakara and was left with only floorboards after Tracy left.
My father George Barham and myself went in to Fannie Bay on Christmas Eve to collect my mother Nancy from the Gaol as she was finishing afternoon shift at the female section. I could tell a lot more about the time if anyone is interested.
I also have a lot of photos taken at the time of both the Gaol and Nakara if anyone would like to see.
I see that a Christene Watson added a message about my brother Tony. If Christene would like to send another message with contact details I could let her know some news.
