Digger Flinders

1/4 Aboriginee, all action.

Description:

Name: Digger Flinders Player: Eric Parks

Background: Digger was born Jan. 1. 1901,in Queensland. His grandfather was Sir George Bowen, the governor of the Queensland Territory from 1859-1868. His grandmother was an aboriginal, making Digger a “quadroon.” He was accepted as a member of aboriginal society, and felt at home with his people.

Digger was forced to integrate into white society, being taken away from his family to live in government schools, designed to kill the aboriginal, save the child. He escaped repeatedly, and always found his way home, despite the punishment that the missionaries would inevitably inflict upon him when he was recaptured.

At the age of 10, Digger was caught on the property of Sir Edward Spencer, who took the boy in, unlike most white society, which rejected the mixed-blood boy. Spencer appreciated Digger’s obvious talents, and recruited him. Although Digger did not yet know it, he had had his first encounter with a member of The Century Club.
