The Australian is carrying a report that Field Marshal William Joseph Slim, 1st Viscount Slim, KG, GCB, GCMG, GCVO, GBE, DSO, MC, (and our 13th Governor-General) fondled boys in the back of his car at the Fairbridge Farm School in the 1950s.
Which perhaps is a little embarrassing for a city with a major road named after him.
On the other hand it was very long ago and the memory plays tricks, especially in the brutal environment that Fairbridge is reported to be. I’m interested in what the rest of you think about the issues.
Aside from being a better than average General, Slim was widely thought of as a better than average Governor-General and was highly regarded in the Canberra community of the time.
