The Bigg family of Blackwood

Had a call today from a niece of Lyndon BIGG, who told me the story that Lyndon was building a house on Adey Rd, Blackwood before he enlisted (and living in a shed on the block), and after he was killed, his parents moved to Blackwood from Echunga and finished the house. After the War, his brothers Lloyd and Alan also lived in the house.

Apparently both Lloyd and Alan kept diaries, which were transcribed by family members and have since been donated to the Museum at the Repat Hospital at Daw Park.

That two more for the list (now at 237!), and more photos and diaries to look through (plus a visit to Repat next week!).
