This is an article that appeared in The West Australian when "The Clock of Time" was published. I was pleased to see that the Soroptimists were putting the proceeds of the sales they made to such a useful purpose. I doubt mum ever made much money out of this publication but then that was not her intent. She just wanted to leave her story mainly for her family and for others whom she had known through all those busy years. I did buy some copies when the book was 'remaindered' to give to friends of mine who had known mum well and also the younger members of our family. All her grandchildren and one great-granddaughter have copies and I intend to give our two youngest great-granddaughters a copy each as well. I have my own copy which mum autographed for me.
You will notice our surname is spelt with an 'h' to make RusHton. At that time in Australia Ruston, without the 'h', was quite rare (in fact I think we were then the only Rustons in Oz at one time) and people automatically took our name to be the the more common Rushton.
You will also note that mum's given name is shown as GWIN. She so disliked the name Gertrude, in later life she became known as Gwin (a combination of Gertrude and Winifred) which I thought rather nice. (Dad, incidentally, still called her Gert).
