Interesting Facts 1

According to Wikipedia, Mosman, Sydney, was the site of the attempted assassination of Australian politician, Arthur Calwell. Only the second attempted political assassination in our history. Long may it be so.
Calwell is also notable for being only the second victim of an attempted political assassination in Australia (the first being Prince Alfred in 1868). On 21 June 1966, Calwell addressed an anti-conscription rally at Mosman Town Hall in Sydney.
