SUR­PRISE GIFT: Ann Meal­ing hopes stu­dents will be able to present this book LIKE com­man­dos plan­ning a raid be­hind en­emy lines, forces in Card­well yes­ter­day were work­ing out ways of pre­sent­ing Prince Wil­liam with two books about the area.

It wasn’t known if there would be an of­fi­cial op­por­tu­nity to give him the books or if more sur­rept i t i o u s me a n s wo u l d have to be found.

The books are Mar­garet Thors­borne’s Hinch­in­brook Is­land – A Sa­cred Wilder­ness, and the just re­leased his­tory of Card­well, The Calo­phyl­lum Shore, by the late Sandy H u b i n g e r a n d h i s nephew, Mur­ray Massey.

The Townsville Bul­letin un­der­stands a Plan B has been put into mo­tion in an ef­fort to get the books to the prince.
