Student Spotlight: Cameron Furlong
After World War II, the Australian Government set up the Migration Assistance Scheme to encourage British Citizens to emigrate to Australia. Migrants would only pay a ten-pound fare for passage to Australia. The scheme saw over one million Ten Pound Poms between 1945 and 1972. Cameron sat down with his Dad, Paul Furlong, a Ten Pound Pom, to ask him about his experiences migrating to Australia as a young boy.
