I completed half of my Graduate Nurse Program at Flinders Medical Centre then 'threw in the towel' to move to Darwin to be with the man that was soon to be my husband! I spend three and a half years in the ICU at Royal Darwin Hospital (and saw some amazing things) and then a desire to escape the humidity led us to Tenant Creek where we have been for the last two years. I am now a mother to a beautiful little boy, and working part time at Tennant Creek Hospital. I am currently also studying for a Graduate Diploma in Public Health.

There are now four Henry-Edwards who have completed degrees at Flinders - myself, Gwilym (BTh 1989), Aneurin (BSc Hons 2001) and Rhodri (BA 2004). Three members of the family have moved to Sydney where Gwilym has become Rector of St Luke's Anglican Church, Enmore and I have become Senior Research Officer at the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre at the University of New South Wales.

I am in my ninetieth year, and have written a book Wrestling with the Past - 1913-2003 covering over ninety years of personal experiences, including a period of living on the streets of London in the Great Depression years 1929 - 1930, surviving three plane crashes in World War Two while serving in Algeria and Sicily, and emigrating to Australia with my family in 1951.
I was a steel worker for twenty years before entering Flinders and acquiring two degrees. Increasing disability forced me to withdraw after completing 80% of a Masters program gaining three distinctions during my studies. Naturally, I was disappointed, and have consoled myself with producing the book which has just gone to the publisher.
I am optimistic about the result, and the illustrations covering almost every stage in this largely autobiographical work should add greatly to its interest.

My thesis was on the Australian thoroughbred racing industry and its links with Asia. I suggested that there were significant opportunities for increased involvement by Asia in the Australian racing industry and one area yet to be exploited was equine tourism.
