Book; Born in 1946? What else happened? - Ron Williams


This product is currently sold out.

This is  a series of books about life in Australia – one for each year from 1939. They describe happenings that affected people, real people. The whole series, to coin a modern phrase, is designed to push your buttons, to make you remember and wonder at things forgotten.

The books might just let nostalgia see the light of day, so that oldies and youngies will talk about the past and re-discover a heritage otherwise forgotten. Hopefully, they will spark discussions between generations, and foster the asking and answering of questions that should not remain unanswered.

In 1946, although the War was over, rationing still persisted, bundles for Britain were filling dozens of ships, and they came back filled with war brides. Trial and execution finished the broadcasting career of Lord Haw Haw. Sadly, very sadly, the atrocities at Sandakan became known, and Lawson Gallop’s book “We Were the Rats” was published and sold, over the dead bodies of our Censors.

Excellent info

The 1946 book was for a birthday present. We were going through both books and had a laugh and reminisced in other parts

Remember When Born in 1946

I purchased this as a gift for a family member born in 1946. It was a huge hit, the perfect gift :-) Planning on buying more in the future

Good social history

I have enjoyed my book and learned a lot. I found it disappointing that the facts were, in the main, Sydney or NSW based . I understand the writer came from Sydney but more effort should have been made to research and include information from orher places.
