Pieter van Breda, now 36, migrated to Australia from Zandvoort, Holland, in 1949, with his wife and 5 month old son. A policeman in Holland, he became a station hand, bread carter and removalist in Australia. He built his own home in Croa, NSW. His family grew, and he now has five children. His life ambition was fulfilled when recently he was appointed child welfare officer in charge of Yasmar House in Ashfield, where he looks after 80 children. In his spare time he works for the Reformed Churches of Australia as a member of the Youth Council for Sutherland Shire. Pieter van Breda with a Webster dictionary, given to him by a grateful client in his removalist-days. September 1959
