John Hunt Kelleher , a Lost Boy

John Hunt Kelleher's brother Wilfred Kelleher, who served, not with the AIF, but two prison terms at Her Majesty's Pleasure.

We always expect a good yarn from Marilyn Kenny, and this time is no exception.   Robberies, police raids, lost wills, orphaned children, 'Pompey' Elliott taking a dunking into the Somme - this story has everything. 

Who will be the beneficiary of John's estate?   His twin sister Grace, whom he named as his Next of Kin, or the ne'er do well brother Wilfred? 

Grab a fresh cup of tea, and sit back and click here for the story of John Hunt  Kelleher, the Lost Boy.
