In 1918 boxes of goods and supplies started disappearing from trains and railway sidings.    The thefts were the work of a young man named Frank Thomas who’d left his father’s farm in #Coorow to live the life of a #bushranger. He camped in the bush and stole food and other supplies from #trains, #railway sidings, #farms and houses. He often threw boxes of goods off moving trains then returned later on a stolen horse to go through the boxes and take what he wanted.
