Christopher, from England, arrived in Australia at 21-year-old as a ‘10 Pound Pom’ in 1964. The effect of his torturous years growing up and at boarding school remain, as does his burden of dyslexia, but he compensated for the latter by recording his stories of his ‘Drifter’ days on his trusty reel-to-reel recorder.

Christopher and Dianne met at Yuendumu, Northern Territory, Australia in 1973 and married this same year. Together, they have three adult children, and seven grandchildren. All are their pride and joy.
