Judy Williams has created a blog containing transcripts of the diaries of her Father, Howard Kettle, called ‘Hey Jude – Outback Travels of my Father… 1929 – 1935.
Howard was a Patrol Padre with the Methodist Inland Mission, now the Uniting Church in Australia Frontier Services, based in Camooweal in Queensland.
The blog allows readers to share in Howard’s work as a minister in remote Australia, his humour, and his tales of the people of the outback in the early 30s.
