In 1957 I met an Australian named Dowse. I was living in Los Angeles, a student at the state university there, to which he had come on a scholarship especially set up to import Australians who could teach gridiron players how to play rugby in the off-season. This was to keep them fit and out of trouble generally. Well, I met this young man and not immediately but eventually fell in love with him. The next thing I knew I was crossing an ocean, to make a new life for myself in Australia.
