Audrey Tomlinson - November Oral History Morning

A retired nurse with an international career will be interviewed at the November Oral History Morning.

Audrey Tomlinson was born in England in 1926. She did her nursing training in the deprived area of Liverpool and then serviced as a District Nurse in Lincolnshire. In 1953 she went to Malaya during the Communist Insurgence and worked in Chinese villages and native kampongs. In 1967 Audrey and her family emigrated from England to Australia. Her work with Aboriginal people has taken her to a remote area of Cape York, to Palm Island and to the coastal towns of Bowen and Innisfail. In retirement Audrey Tomlinson is involved with The Leprosy Mission.

Audrey is a great raconteur and will be relating stories from her remarkable career.

This Oral History Morning will be held in Geraldton Regional Library on
Wednesday 16th November at 10 am.
