British migrant Walter Shaw, 53, came to Mackay, North Queensland, Australia, in April 1952. He is now a carpenter at the giant Playstowe Sugar Mill, near the city, and is buying his own home. Much of his spare time is consumed as Choir Master of Mackay Holy Trinity Church of England, where he is also organist. He is also a member of the local Choral Society as a tenor. "Working conditions here are so far ahead of those I left in England that you cannot compare them," he said. Walter Shaw at work as a carpenter at Pleystowe Sugar Mill, near Mackay TITLE:
