Summary

Annie Ozies, born 1936, Broome? Ozies speaks about her mother who had been removed to Beagle Bay Catholic Mission, W.A. as a child, and about her own removal to the Holy Child Catholic Orphanage in Broome when she was aged 5. She describes the living conditions in the Orphanage. During World War II, the Orphanage was evacuated to Beagle Bay Mission, which enabled contact with her siblings and other family members. Ozies also talks about her working life.
