  • Notes 
    • Arrived in Australia in 30th October 1920 aboard the Berrima
      Served in the First World War leaving from Bedford for France Friday
      May 3rd 1918 thence to Malta,Alexandria and the East Coast of Africa
      Godwin was a poor manager of money having had an inheritance from the
      Estate in Ceylon, he tried his hand at farming,bad luck as much as
      anything caused him to lose out on most things he attempted. He became
      a soft touch for advantage seekers and seemed be on the wrong end of
      most deals he made.
