7th January 1933 cont. - I heard someone call my name
We arose, gathered our gear together and stepped out on to the platform, all a bit self conscious. I had no sooner appeared than I heard someone call my name. It turned out to be Dr David Brown, the only medical man in Central Australia as far down as Hawker. He has been in China and has lived in the Territory for some time before coming down to the Alice on a Government job.

He insisted on taking me home and putting me up while we were in the Alice. The others went off to the pub which happened to be next door.
