The Big Brother Movement has helped over 12,000 young men migrate from the UK to Australia since 1925. Some spend several weeks on board a ship together and credit their positive migration experience with the young men that came alongside them, with whom they formed deep bonds.
At The Big Brother Movement we want to ensure that anyone who would like to be in contact with fellow ‘Little Brothers’ and rekindle friendships is able to do so. We would like to invite all ‘Little Brothers’ to a reunion in Sydney on the 5th and 6th November. Even if an individual can’t make it, we’d love to hear from them. We may be able to reconnect them with fellow shipmates who are also in touch with us and share information and records that could be of interest.
Little Brothers and their families can visit our website www.bigbrothermovement.asn.au for info on the reunion and how to get in touch.
