Judge Swabey

Saved by his classmate, Ronald J. Adams (1937-1991).

Saved from this. And this.

Life rebuilt into Adams, Sherwood, Swabey and Follon, in Cornwall, where he was primarily a solicitor, particularly in relation to wills and estates; no extensive court work.

Died in 2000, nine years after his friend. Cancer, which he ignored, some say. Worked until one week before his death. Obituary as follows:

    Bruce, I am impressed and pleased that you sent this message to me. I knew Tom Swabey and considered him a good friend, a good lawyer and a hard-working Judge. Thank you for this.

    I knew the hooker mentioned in the Citizen piece, Sandy Cunningham, her pimp, was the famous tough guy. Bobby Mitchell was the brother of bank robber Paddy. One of five Mitchell boys who grew up in the Preston area. Bobby’s dead, as is Paddy & the only other one I sort of knew was Pinky, a bookmaker. Don’t know if Pinky is still with us. A colourful era!
