The Mail, Adelaide
20 September 1952
In his "Our Strange Past" story in The Mail (13/9/52) George Blaikle said John Hawdon (who was my great-uncle) lived at Heidelberg.
This is incorrect; John Hawdon lived on his station in NSW. It was John's brother, Joseph Hawdon, the explorer, who lived at Heidelberg, and from whom the duelling pistols were borrowed.
