In 1935 Geoffrey Hamlyn-Harris, the son of Maymie Hamlyn-Harris (q.v.), received a Gatton Scholarship and was employed as a farm worker and a jackaroo in Western Queensland until 1942. He then spent 5 years in the army and was one of the remnant of twelve still in action, out of an infantry battalion of about one thousand men, after the Owen Stanley, Kokoda and Gona campaigns. After the war he lived in Stanthorpe for a few years where he was engaged in orcharding, and started to write. He then moved to Coloundra (1978-1989), before returning to Stanthorpe after the death of his wife.
