The Forgotten Australians that were used and abused in State Institutional care are being ignored by our Government Dpt's and the horrendous abuses are being covered up still today.

Why does our Government think that the four letter word SORRY ...justifies closing the book on the most horrific abuses of children in this county's living history.

If you were a victim of these heinious crimes in Daruk Boys Home in Windsor NSW please tell us your thoughts on why our Government has shut the door in your faces.

I spent six months at Daruk during 1966. I was 14 years old at the time.

I remember being hit and kicked, on many occasions by an "Officer" by the name of Edingham. He was nicknamed "The Goat", because of his penchant for kicking his victims.

There was also an attempt by another Officer at sexual abuse.

I got up to go to the toilet one night, and he insisted that I had wet the bed. I was required to have a shower, and wash the bedsheets. While I was drying myself off afterwards, he pretended to be inspecting his eye in the mirror, but was actually inspecting me! His evenings entertainment was interrupted by someone else wanting to use the toilet.

A lucky escape for me! Unfortunately I can't remember the perpetrators name.

I was there about 196o I was 14 an was sexually abused by the night caretaker while I was in the bathroom, I complained a got a hiding for opening my mouth an called a liar etc, I spent 12 months there for running away from home because of my step mother, I was classed as un controllable.

Our Government has created a DIRTY HISTORY that this country will never forget.

The Forgotten Australians warrant their compensation for the horrific abuses they experienced in State Care re: Child Labour Camps.

i was there in the 60,s,not a nice place,in more ways then one..if anyone wants some info,please get in touch..wa is as far as i can go to forget..

hi,
my brother and myself were victims of horrendous abuse at the hands of our father and eventually my brother tried to escape only to end up in Darek boys home where he suffered even more abuse.
this was in the late 1970"s and it seemed every where we turned there was yet more abuse and no one ever believed you when you cried for help.
i have watched my brother suffer at the hands of the worst kind of sexually deviants and watched his sole be destroyed for ever and still there is no justice. he was a heroine addict at the age of 15 because guards at darek wanted to control him as he was a blonde, blue eye, small boy, who was an easy target for these monsters. if there was anyway i could help my brother seek some justice just for one crime against him i would do it.
he is 48 years old and broken, broken to bits. i cry inside every day for the life he should of had, it is so sad and who cares???????
what do we need to do, who shall we speak too, can you give me any advice.
lynn.

im starting to get frustrated in all this computer stuff i don't even know how to send an e.mail or recieve one so my stupidity is the only thing between me trying to help you in this matter and me finding some kind of closer. i've tryed putting messages on the facebook page but they seem to vanish so forgive me for my hesitation in moveing forward as you have sugested re;going to my local police and nameing and stateing the facts in my own abuse, my sister is in aus but i am stuck in the uk so if you need to cotact me you can on facebook or through my sdister Lynn Arrowsmith, you have already been in touch with her and she has all the info that i could give you, Barraclough and holt were the first ones to abuse me pysicaly and sexualy after i and a friend were caught smokeing pot after a visit. We both were taken to solitary and abused my friend Wayne said that they only beat him but that Barraclough fucked me beat me and as a sufferer of abuse even before i got there mentaly tortured me and that was the begining as after that i kept on escapeing and getting took back and it was alway barraclough who picked me up to take me back.I was in his barracks so i had no escape, now i can give all these detail to my local police and get them to pass my statement to Penrith but i have no way of knowing that anything will be done e.mails are a thing i just carnt get a grip ov i am only now starting to recover from the whole issue of abuse and how it has kept me in the same place for 30 odd years but if you were to speak to my sister or contact me via facebook at least it would give me a sence of not been alone i suffer cronik mightmares from the whole system during the 70's i am ashamed and descusded in what i went through and it is takeing every last bit of strength i have to face these demons and i will never be able to move on without recognision andsupprot from other victems, all the slave labour and the beatings i cancope with but the sexual abuse has scared me so deeply that i think of murder and that was not the child that was sent there in the first place, i dont just have these issues with Darrack but the whole system Taldry,Fishers boys home and grafton and that was over and 5 year period as i said to you in my first reply i will do whatever is nessisary to see justice been done that is the only way i can move on and make something of my life what there is left of it but right now i feel that my words are falling on deaf eyers and that is adding to the pain and anguish i am going through, Barraclough was a beast and im glad that they sent me back to england because i have the same hatred for him as i have for my father who started my abuse and ive done time for trying to kill him so he is lucky that i am where i am please help me as i will help you in your case and i have witnesses and aint afraid to expose what happened to me but i feel so alone in this takeing the next step envolves more faith and courage than i feel that i have at the moment. it aint easy to say yes i was sodimissed i was draged through darrack and the rest of the system by6 force. i guess that i may be classed as one of those who was payed off as they gave me a one way ticket back to a country that i knew nothing ov and that was to silence me but i carnt be silent anymore.the boy that i got caught smokeing the pot with was payed of in dollars and i know that when i bring him into the frame he carnt deny any of it.i am doing all i can to try to work out e.mail and all that shit but untill i do i still feel like im on my own and just keep exposeing myself as a victum.Justice needs to be seen to be done and Barraclough and holt need to feel that justice they should be in prison themselves but are been protected by a corrupt system that will fight all the way for these pedophiles. i hope you get this reply and i hope that you listen as i to need justice and peace.you have my name and my sisters so you can get a hold of me or her on facebook she is now a nurse with respect i would like to find respect for comeing forward and joining in with other sufferers that is my justice.thank you 4 your time and if you still want me to do that with the police please reply and make this feel real to me. johnpaulwoodward.

Hello ...I'm getting a bit better now after five years of hellful post traumatic and I did find you on yahoo but I got suspended for carrying on about child rape again so whatever is what I say. i have to pay clan another $20 so i can look at photo's again and I'm not very impressed with them because they are funded and never call me back simply because I don't know who I am.
But I'm getting better.
Reading stories only triggers me off so I cannot do it.
I was in a few different homes but still can't prove it.
Sorry I went crazy but I did not know and copped a personality disorder and then got more upset from being banned from the websites and everybody kept treating me as if I was being a bully or rude on purpose when I was severely ill.
Such is life.
I forgive.
I'm just glad that I'm alive.
I am still at base one or on the first step and find it hard to understand and do not trust anyone one after I nearly died but what can one do other than plod along.
I think I got banned from here also but don't know.
Thanks for reading me and replying.

Hello Sharon

No one would doubt what you suffered via system abuses.

I feel for you deeply as surviving without an identity is so very wrong, unjustified and inhumane.

Please do not feel that your female status along with the serious abuses you endured are not worthy of discussion.

The topic above was submitted for a certain institution where many serious and life destroying abuses occurred on the boys who were at Daruk re: Forgotten Australians.

You can create your own topic by clicking on new topic . You may want to create a topic on the Institution you were in. This would give others the oppurtunity to comment and relate to your tragic abuses.

Stay strong and know that there are many who visit this site in support of many others who have been seriously abused by State & Church.

I am going to try to post some more information but need time to think it through.
I'm glad and thankful that I am still allowed to be here anyway.
I am very hurt about being banned after I knew some of the people on the wings for survivors website.
I am very proud of mick for soldering on with all of this that he has done.
Blackburn cottages in Melbourne.
I can't say anymore now because I can feel it starting to trigger me off again so I will come back soon and do it little bit by little bit.
I cannot afford to get sicker as I'm non medicated and live alone and my own adult kids think it is some kind of false memory thing so it is extremely hard for me.
Thanks.
I am still really upset about the newspapers saying I am a murder ... way back when my case happened with my own kids and being made 2nd most wanted and now I know why it was so easy for them ...because i am an orphan ...a child migrant and as I type those words the flipping tears welt up again ... so I will leave it for now because the foster parents do not even have to admit it and still say I'm a liar but I can remember more about my real home now and it petrifies me.

Hi Sharon
Glad you are feeling better.
When I read your stuff I think how brave you are because allowing people to see what this trauma does to us is the only way to bring changes. Somebody did this to you, its my OPINION, (which contrasts with those in society who should know better and act) that a perpetrator is an abuser and a criminal and that crimes against children and women are acts generally associated with war. Therefore this is why we are left feeling like we feel and dealing with our adrenaline responses, anxiety, fear, tears, yelling, confusion, bla bla.

It is the lack of response to this war like situation, from governments, who fail to act with a "duty of care" to us when we speak out, because generally we have come across the psychological/psychiatric fraternity, and been diagnosed with being abused as children, that then leaves us flabbergasted. This is because we expect that in revealling such trauma the people who we should have told (or even did tell) will now go and do something about the things it has taken us a lifetime to reveal. The reason it takes so long to come out about the abuse is because being abused causes a developmental delay in us, we are emotionally immature and this creates a life of problems because when the stress response rises in us we go into childlike states, and act in ways others perceive as innapropriate. They fail to recognise their own behaviours or question their response to us as human beings who have had their development interfered with, they also fail to realise that that is not who we are, or how we always act and after an "event" we are again shamed and embarressed by our reactions to stressful events. The bastard thing is for us they do not not what they are doing or the effect they are having on us, they blame rather than calm and increase the panic we are already feeling, leaving us feeling raped all over again. Yet they fail to realise because they are ignorant of the reality of the condition, and the bodily responses that trigger it.

You are ok Sharon, there is enough in the world for everyone, including you. You and the many others who speak out, and risk the persecution and the self torment that comes with saying "yes this happened to me, stop doing this to human beings", are hero's. Any one who "knows" can see that something has been done to you, it's very difficult for our kids to fully comprehend what is with us, my goal, after my children where born, before anything else was their health and safety due to my background (like many others like me) unfortunately when they were in danger from someone and I removed them from him. laws, police, courts and DoCS were not available for a supportive role and instead made me out to be a monster.

One day there will be a world that stops this behaviour from governments. Yes, it may be a violent end to the way that things are now, who knows. Without people like you and me and all the others who are willing to "risk" everything by speaking up, that world wont happen.
It would be like those who have abused us said, "DONT TELL OR I WILL COME AFTER YOU" so, for many years we did not tell. Now that we have spoken out, we are called damaged or liars, mad and crazy, whatever, which was part of the abuse, and part of what the abusers threatened us with, the corruption of government remains that they told us to speak out about child abuse and domestic violence, yet when we did, they did nothing to stop the violence and abuse and in many, many cases support the actual child abusers. This is my story with DoCS, courts, police, family, partners, children, psychologists, the world. Like you I breath each day, I struggle on, and I sometimes think about you because I see what is wrong and I know how to fix it a bit, but that takes the professionals and those vested with "duty of care" to actually start to adhere to that and to the very laws that exist to deal with all these issues, but so far I do not see that happening.

Take care Sharon, I think you are safe here.

It is flooding up here in the north so I'm a bit concerned.
I will talk again very soon and thanks for making me feel welcome.
I got my kids back by "Revoking the order" ... but that was over 20 years ago now so maybe the laws have changed in their favor again.
They put a crime stoppers reward on my head and the newspapers said ...
--Wanted for the murder of a social worker--
I never even laid a hand on her.
I am still going to try to get a retraction for that.
I don't want to go down in history as a murderer when I never did it!
It was a good article in the Sunday mail and Micky has done so well after Luke died and I'm very proud of his strength and determination.
I hope he knows that nobody meant to move the things in the cemetery but they had a funeral right next to Luke's grave last year some time and the little cars and statues and pot plants got moved about.
I built a heart shaped Angel watch ... garden at the end of my daughters row, where I grow flowers for all of the children and put statues there and other people put flowers there too.
I never meant to get cranky with Micky, you know.
I try not to get close to people anymore until I get a bit better.
Thanks for your reply Kath and I will be soldiering on all the way until we get victory in this country and that is a sure bet!!!
I am just taking a breather but I am a soldier and always win!
I will help you to be strong also and tell you every thing I know about docs.
They were called the department of family services, back when I was involved with them and they hate my guts because I got my kids back and they lost when they tried to jail me for ten years ... lol ...xxx.
People say I should be proud of being 2nd most wanted.
Yeah ... it ain't easy ... xxx.

That is kind of the problem = 5 years later?
Nobody is talking mate = they just make money mate?
I am still trying to find me and still getting ignored.
This website is for docs and not for forgotten Australians trying to find family or traces of their own past.
Clan never rang back and as if that is a surprise to me these days?
Open place did not waste a phone call on me?
Wow = I wonder what my topic could be?
Anybody remember a little blond girl in Victoria back in the 60's ...?

And on yahoo answers the entire world gets to see my face and I was born with my face.
I also have a website where I write my short books of poetry called delvingdom and my philosophy is delvinhood ...?
I cannot waste my time in bleeding my soul out on a forum like this just to find the entire work ...blocked... so be it and see ya whenever.
