PETER FITZSIMONS: LEAVING ALBANY

Author Peter FitzSimons brings to life the epic story of the WW1 troop convoys that departed Albany Western Australia in late-1914. He visits Breaksea Island where the ‘Lighthouse Girl’ farewelled the troops as they sailed from King George Sound. Sadly, for many of the diggers this would be their last glimpse of Australia.
