Paul and his family moved to Katherine at this time when he was aged 16. Both he and Craig weren't too happy about it at the time because they were loving their fishing and hanging out with their mates John and Graham. But their dad had got a transfer to look after the Katherine Fire Station so we had to go!
It turned out Katherine wasn't so bad - was lovely weather in the Dry Season and where we lived on Riverbank Drive it was a short walk to lovely Hot Springs. Paul and Craig attended Katherine High School which was a bit of a rough joint - the girls were scarier than the boys!
