First of three true stories about the back country of Australia by Reginald Ottley
' They buried him deep, away from the dingoes and crows. And because, like everyone who knew Jones-y, they thought a lot of him, they made a good job of his grave. No one will ever see it. but they thought it was the least they could do for him. One of them stripped away the bark of a desert Needlewood tree, and wrote on it with a piece of red-hot fencing wire, "Old Jones-y's here, all six feet wo, we buried him as bush blokes do. We tied his feet, and strapped his chin, the search is done, iust let him in." '
