All this Illawarra philately has made my memories turn to Norman Gunston and the anthemic "Wollongong the Brave":

Lift up your hand
To an Illawarra land
Of Dapto, Port Kembula and thee
What should I say?
Should I just say, "G'day"?
Wollongong the Brave

[Chorus]
The ages wait for us to share
Our wit and wisdom with the world
We don't have class
But we do have Bulli Pass
And Mount Ouseley
So, be proud and shout loud
Speak Australian, make the sound
"Wollon-the-Gonga the Brave-a"

Break free from our bonds
Like an island of palm fronds
Aloha, my Wollongong the Brave

[Chorus]
Stand tall, straight and strong
Hold your nose in Wollongong
Land that is girt by sea
On one side

Regards

Yes I have one of these & I think somewhere I have one for Bellambi too. However after an hour of searching tonight I gave it up as a lost cause. :)

If I recall correctly the grave & remains of Matthew Flinders were found in St James's burial ground in Euston, London, earlier this year.
