Anyone Left Britain to Live Abroad, but Then Returned Home?
This topic came about because of a chat with another member on another topic.
As a teen my family emigrated to Australia when they were encouraging families to go there to live and work. I was distraught at leaving but equally distraught when we came home.
On arrival we were put on a sort of army base living in nissen huts, with communal shower and laundry blocks. There were people who then helped you get started with homes, jobs and school.
Looking back it seems awful but at the time perfectly acceptable. My parents tried to settle but we ended up coming back home to even worse circumstances!
Was anyone else a £10 Pom or tried living abroad but came back.
