Abstract: I had enrolled in Taree High School at the beginning of 1951, but I was only there for a matter of weeks when my mother, Miriam, died of a miscarriage, as I was told, or perhaps of eclampsia. If it was a miscarriage, it would have been her second or third such - I was her only successful delivery. In the days before her death she had given my distraught father strict instructions that I was to be given a good education, and though he was shattered by grief, and by poverty deliberately visited on us by his landlord father over the whole period of my parents' marriage, he did try faithfully to honour the duty my mother had laid upon him. I was twelve years old at the time of Mum's death, and the background data above is of relevance to my early adolescence and Lionel Gilbert's impact on it.
