Shadow of Doubt - ABC Australian Story


ABC Australian Story 'Shadow of Doubt' 
When we set out to learn more about our grandfather's 1947 murder conviction and the untimely death of 19 year-old Bronia Armstrong, we assumed our findings would remain firmly within the family circle. Initially, our primary goal was to help older family members better understand the workings of the ''ópen and shut'' case that had devastated their young lives. However, very early on we discovered our grandfather, Reg Brown, was not only denied a voice, but was sentenced to life imprisonment with unprecedented speed. Nine days later he too died.
The more we uncovered, the more determined we became to re-present this case to the public. It loomed as an overwhelming task going well beyond our skill set and only became a reality due to the encouragement and support received from veteran investigative journalist/author, Bob Bottom. After reading our material, Bob firmly believed that the telling of this story was not only important for the family but in the public interest.
Never did we imagine our family project would one day appear on Australian Story!
Program to go to air on Monday 26 September.
With sincere thanks to all who have made this possible,

Lingering Doubts - Wynnum/Manly Historical Society

Thank you so much to the lovely people in our audience last night. We were made to feel so welcome and we thank you for your invitation to share our story. The evening was made all the more special as Wynnum was for many years, home to Jan and her family. As doesn't often happen, Auntie Val, Jan's mum, spoke about the devastating effect her father's conviction and death had on her. Val also acknowledged the grief the Armstrong family too had suffered. This amazing lady's courage in speaking about this painful chapter in her life was rewarded with warm applause...and hugs from old friends.
Much appreciation for our gifts and we look forward to reading 'Mangroves to Moorings Revisited by society member Myrtle Beitz.

Lingering Doubts - Ashgrove Book Club

Loved our visit with the Ashgrove Book Club members! As Lingering Doubts was chosen as their May book members were familiar with the story and engaged in an active discussion, asking many valid questions. Our evening culminated with us all agreeing upon one thing:
the 1947 police investigation that saw accountant, Reg Brown, convicted of murder was built on a  foundation of smoke and mirrors, which was then presented to the jury as 'strong circumstantial evidence'.          
Many thanks for inviting us to share our story and also to Communify Qld.
