Victoria's Western District, rich and green, can justly be proud of the "BOAB" campaign committee centred at Allansford, a farming township 150 miles from Melbourne. President of the Committee is the Reverend Keith Shrader, a Presbyterian Minister. "It gives my wife and I a great deal of pleasure to help the people who come out. They are wonderful asset to the community." Mrs Johnston adjusts the tie of her eldest son, Harry, 20, a member of the Victorian Police Force, before he leaves Wangoom for Melbourne, where he is stationed. The Johnston family from Lammey Newmills, Dungannon, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, came to Australia under the sponsorship of the Allansford "BOAB" campaign committee.
