SUCH A NOTEWORTHY WOMAN
The Molly Haydock story in your November issue was a fascinating read. Having escaped the noose for stealing a horse, she’s transported to Australia and becomes one of the colony’s most prominent citizens, ending up on their $20 note. Just goes to show you can’t keep a good Lankie down! I sent it to my daughter in Sydney and she was amazed the woman on their banknote was not from home but also from just up the road. The rhyme asks us to remember the 5th of November but, for us, it’s the 27th that’s the most important date, writes Vijay Arogyasami.
