Evacuation of Missions and Isolated Stations 1942


National Archives of Australia Darwin Office F1 1942/367 Evacuation of Missions and Isolated Stations Northern territory 1942 Copyright Paul Mackett 2007 Katherine 27th March, 1942 Dear Mr Giles I forward herewith a list of people who are being evacuated from Katherine by train this afternoon (Friday). A copy of this list has been handed to Fr. Henschke who is travelling as Welfare Officer. They will, I expect, leave Larrimah tomorrow morning and you can get advice of their subsequent progress from Army. As we need a number of lists here, I can only send you one copy to work from but you will no doubt be able to get other copies typed in A.S.. There are still about 20 people, six white women at Mataranka including .... boy and about 140 to be evacuated from Pine Creek. These will all be on the next train which at present I expect to leave Pine Creek on Sunday morning. I propose to go on to Pine Creek tonight by train and get things in operation there. I propose to send Miss Halberstater and Miss Haynes as Welfare Officers with that convoy and also Mr Tambling if arrangements to his release are completed. From Pine Creek I will return to Darwin and send you a list of that train load from there. You will see that they are a very mixed bunch and therefore I have shown what they are. You will have the job of sorting them out for accomodation and informing Adelaide and Interior. Will you also please send a list to Brigadier ....... DSO MC, Movements Section, Army HQ Melbourne. All well. Cheers . G Carrington Will arrange Lampe's? transfer to A.S. as soon as possible after my return to Darwin.
