My best friend Sally goes there too. But it looks like there could be another war and Dad has convinced Mum t...o go. Because we're migrants, the voyage is costing Mum and Dad only 10 each. My brother Brian and I are travelling free. It's a long way to Australia. What if we never come back to England? In the 1950s and 60s Australia welcomed thousands of British immigrants as part of the Assisted Passage Migration Scheme. Ten Pound Pom is the true story of award-winning author Carole Wilkinson's immigration to Australia.
