Manxman Harry Kerruish took a big step when he migrated from the Isle of Man to Australia - he stepped into a 5 000 acre sheep property and a double salary. With his wife and six children, he now is a farm worker on a property carrying 9 000 sheep in the rich Wimmera wheat and sheep district 200 miles north-west of Melbourne. From a salary of 7.10 Pounds Sterling for a 53-hour week in Onchan, he now receives 14.1 Pounds Australian for a 40-hour week. He has an attractive two bedroom timber house rent free, together with free electric light, wood, meat and milk. August 1959
