no copyright in the book but it was printed in 1973 and Mr. Calwell worked hard to compile this
and you can still buy it online at various places so I've just summarised with a few photos and lists of names,
I also added the Contents page so you can see what's in the full book.

2) To the Memory of Herbert Darbishire, John Fagan, Brice Smyth - The Founders
