The Carroll family were given one hours notice to evacuate their Doctors Gully home because of an army acquisition order four days after their mother had given birth. They boarded the USS President Grant at Stokes Hill Wharf on December 22, 1941, and steamed for Sydney, where the children were separated into orphanages. Darwin was bombed only three months later, on February 19, 1942. Their mother had a nervous breakdown during the rushed departure. George, 75, Frank, 72, and Mick Carroll, 71, and Julia Boland, 74, still live in New South Wales. The eldest sibling, Maria, lives in Canada and the youngest, John, died about two years ago. Their father also na med George remained in Darwin as a wharfie but died years later, partially from wounds received in the bombing. George Boland, who was aged six when the family fled, said Darwin had changed but some parts were still familiar. I remember the little winding road down to the beach at Doctors Gully, he said. I remember the wooden skeleton of a sunken ship there. Someone told us that its still there. Grandparents Constantinos and Chrysaphina Dioctitis died in 1934 and 1949 and are buried in The Gardens cemetery, which the family visited this week. The family say when the NT Government took over Doctors Gully, not enough was done to find them. The family leave on Saturday but may return in February for the 70th anniversary of the Bombing of Darwin.
