Hit By Two Cars, Neither Drivers Stopped

Tuesday … so it’s Trove Tuesday time. And again Trove has come up with an amazing tid-bit relating to my family. Ok, technically it’s Mr Lonetester’s family, but you get the point. And again it’s something I never would have thought of (of known about) if it wasn’t for the wonders of Trove.

here’s a photo of Richard John Tester, age 18/19

I will admit I haven’t done a whole lot of research on this side of the family, so am still learning a lot as I go, however I do know that Richard John Tester survived this accident and lived on for another 20 odd years, and is buried in the Warrnambool Cemetery in Victoria, Australia.

Trove Tuesday: Men Chased By Wild Sea Lion

It’s been a while since I have done a Trove Tuesday post, but when my auntie-in-law sent me a link to an article about her dad Dick Tester, that appeared in the News newspaper back in 1952, I knew that was going to be my very next post.

So we have a group of young men. A fishing trip to Kangaroo Island. And a sea lion.  Was this a young man’s adventure, or was it a scene from a scary movie? You be the judge.
