Description - Born in 1947? by Ron Williams

This is the eigth of the 1940s and the seventeenth book overall to be released in a series of 30 about life in Australia - one for each year from 1939 to 1968. They describe happenings that affected people, real people. The whole series, to coin a modern phrase, is designed to push your buttons, to make you remember and wonder at things forgotten. The books might just let nostalgia see the light of day, so that oldies and youngies will talk about the past and re-discover a heritage otherwise forgotten. Hopefully, they will spark discussions between generations, and foster the asking and answering of questions that should not remain unanswered.In 1947, Labor was still in power, using up all the petrol it wouldnt give to our motorists. The Poms were firing rockets over our Aborigines, while Menzies was discovering Reds under our beds. Our new Governor General was not a Pom, but a local lad, and Princess Elizabeth said yes to a Greek. Six boys, aged under 17, were gaoled for life for rape, and 10 oclock closing night stop the six oclock swill. These were striking times.
