Desperately Seeking Lithgow Ladies
I am a student who is currently undertaking an honours thesis in Industrial Relations throughout 2000. I would be most appreciative if you would let the editors and advertisers know of my thesis. In other words, would you be able to publish the following request ?
" Ruby Eunson -Cottle of the University of Sydney seeks any women and men who were situated in :Lithgow, N.S.W. during the years 1942-1945. These people can be inhabitants or workers who were employed in the coal mines, the hospital and the small arms factory.Please contact the writer on ph: (02) 9569 2158 if anyone is available to discuss their experiences of life in Lithgow during these years."
Thank you for considering my request and I look forward to your reply.
