I was cooking for the Muster at Double Lagoon forty kms north of Normanton and for 3 months had done the cooking and not gone out of the property. The Boss, who was one of the brothers who owned the grazing property came for the day and some guys phoned and were given permission to go pig hunting on the property. They had to be shown where to camp, and boss said he would drive them to Ross Waterhole which is where they were allowed to shoot and camp.
It was afternoon and my time off, and I carefully asked if I could come for a drive. To my delight he said yes, and I went along in his 4WD leading the pig hunters vehicles. This was his hat. I was amazed at how well used it looked…a real outback station hat, an original Akubra made of rabbit fur.
