DECEMBER 2014 VOL 33 NO 4 70 Nearly 300 Australians died. Authorities lost confidence in the power of the Geneva Convention to prevent Japa nese attacks on hospital ships and ordered the Manunda to port to be refloated as a regular naval vessel. Her red crosses were painted out. But, after a fierce debate about the law of the sea and her rights to protection, there was another change of heart and by August Joe was once more on the high seas back to New Guinea waters. BOOK REVIEW Goulburn Pioneer Cemeteries St Saviours Mortis Street, Towrang Stockade, Jewish and St Patricks College. Jan Grant and June F Penny This book is self-published by Jan Gran and June Penny as their personal contribution to the 150th Birthday Celebra tions of the City of Goulburns Royal Letter Patent issued by Queen Victoria on 14 March 1863 establishing the An glican Diocese of Goulburn, giving Goulburn City status and making it Australias first inland city. The Goulburn Pioneer Cemeteries represent the oldest existing European graveyards located within the City of Goulburn. Within the covers of this book, in addition to the names recorded on each of the headstones; broken portions or footstones, the information is recorded in full as it appears on the stones and includes verses, details of monumen tal masons, status of the current condition of the headstone and surround, together with additional priceless infor mation not previously published of many unmarked burials of pioneers, for whom there is no memorial. The research and presentation of this book has been undertaken with professional dedication and attention to de tail and is enhanced with easy to use grids to guide readers to plot locations and is fully indexed by surname. His torical notes together with selected photographic illustrations are included. Parish maps are used to identify the location of each cemetery, including a map of what was a planned, dedicated, but never used forerunner to the current Goulburn General Cemetery. This addition to our library can be found in the New South Wales section.
