PLEASE NOTE: It has been brought to my attention that the photograph on page 17 of the July edition of "Bremer Echoes" is the Thomas Barker family, but not Thomas Barker, "Red Gum" or "Old Sport".  It appears there were two Thomas Barkers in Ipswich at the same time, and I do apologize to Noela and the other readers.

Irma Deas, Editor.
