Summary
'The truth is that I never did know my mother - my mum - and now I don't even know what happened to her after she had left us, what became of her - even whether she is now alive or dead. She gave life to me and, not long after, she went away. I was probably 3 when I last saw her. My dad died soon after. And then it was just me and my two brothers Kevin and Brucie left to fend for ourselves in a big band world. We didn't - and couldn't - possibly know then, as defenceless little kids, just how big, and just how bad it was." But we were about to find out. So begins a life-long journey for Rex, who at the age of 11 left the children's home in Cornwall along with his brother, and travelled to Australia on the promise of a better life. It was the early 1970s and the two boys were believed to be the last orphans to be transported under the Child Migrants Programme
