133 Arthur began school in 1914 at Hindmarsh School but after his mother's death he went to Woodlands School which was closer to his Aunt Myrtle's home. When they moved to live with Arthur's father at Hoyleton he attended Hoyleton School. Arthur got his Q.C. and left School at 12.
In 1921 Arthur went to Lameroo to work on a property which his father had bought and then exchanged for another at Meningie (on the Hummocks on the other side of the Coorong from McGrath's Flat). The exchange was made with a distant relative against advice from Arthur's grandmother. It was later fount that the distant relative did not own the property at the time of the exchange and although Arthur's father was advised he could take legal action, he did not pursue the matter.
Arthur worked at the Lameroo property for seven or eight months and on leaving was given 13 sheep which the distant relative said were running on the Hummocks property. These sheep were in lieu of wages. Arthur went to find his sheep but there had only ever been 6 there. Two had already been shot by a fisherman and when Arthur and Frank tried to round up the remaining 4, two of them jumped into the Coorong and drowned. While catching the last two, Arthur's best pony (which he had jumped at the Meningie Show) injured it shoulder when the horse and Arthur somersaulted down a steep sand hill. The horse was never any good for hard riding after this incident.
Arthur lived in a hut on the Coorong trapping and poisoning rabbits (with strychnine and apple) until he was 17. He got 50,000 rabbits in one year alone and sold the skins.
In 1925 Arthur's father bought a property at Halidon and they moved there. At 18 Arthur got a 99 year lease property of 1900 acres of his own. It was 14 miles east of Halidon. He worked extremely hard to clear 1600 acres while still working for his father and others. Somewhere between 1927 and 29 Arthur's father sold his property. Between 1927 and 1942 Arthur played football for Halidon (for a time he was captain-coach) and won two East Murray Football Association medals. He also won Best and Fairest, and fairest 1931 and Most Brilliant - Mail Medal 1935 (possibly the first gold medal awarded by the Mail in the area)
In 1942 he left the land to join the Army. Arthur advised the State Bank to sell the improvements on the property to recoup what was owing and they did so and mad a profit. At this time only one other farmer remained of the 22 who started farming in this area. The rest had walked off with nothing. Frank did look after some sheep on this farm for two or three years. Frank could not enlist because of a shot gun injury to the knee and rheumatic fever. Arthur served as a corporal in the transport section of the Army and went to Darwin, Northern Territory, Bougainvillea returning with the medals; 1939/45 star, Pacific Star, Defence medal, War Medal 1939/45 and Australian Service Medal.
In 1946 he returned from the army and lived with Frank for 7.5 years at Commandook, South Australia, where he met Thelma. In 1953 he bought a scrub block at Claywells in the South-East and named it "Woodlands". Arthur and Thelma moved to "Woodlands' in 1956, raising their young family there and clearing and developing the scrub block despite the handicap of developing arthritis of Arthur's hips. In 1988 they retired to a house in Millicent, South Australia. (The Tucker Family in Australia, 1992)

134 Arthur grew up in the house attached to the harness shop in the main street of Owen. Even though his schooling was fairly basic he became a school teacher and taught in small one-teacher country schools like Fowlers Bay and Tarcoola prior to 1915. he enlisted on 25.5.1915 in A.I.F in WWI and served for approximately 4 years in the Erd Light Horse Machine gun regiment in Egypt, Palestine and the Middle East. He contracted malaria in these areas and suffered recurring bouts for many years after the war. he discharged 19/8/1919.
Arthur took a teaching post at Wirrabara forest at the start of 1920. he became involved in various outside activities, Freemasonry, for instance, and this meant he was away from home during evenings and Elsie found this a bit traumatic as the school, with house nearby, was on the edge of a pine forest and half a mile from the nearest neighbour, and five miles from the little township of Wirrabara. Their four sons were born there. They enjoyed the country life roaming the surrounding hilly countryside, mushrooming, digging out rabbits and keeping them as pets, exploring creeks, climbing pine trees close to home, and attending school where Arthur taught about 30 children from the Surrounding rural properties and fores employees' families in Primary School grades 1-7.
The month of Adelaid's worst heat wave on record, and the family lived at Croydon and Arthur continued as an assistant teacher at Hindmarsh school until he retired at 65 in 1956. Arthur was in his later years a staunch supporter of the West Torrens Football Club and rarely missed a match or a training night. He and Elsie lived on at Croydon until their deaths.(The Tucker Family in Australia, 1992)

139 Arthur's third name may have been Melvin and he may have been known as "Melf", Melva Butt-Thomas says she was named after he Uncle Melf. The family does not have much information about him and there is little on the microfiche.
There is a death of an Arthur Smith in 1914 at Horsham. he was approx the right age, especially if the person registered the death was guessing. This may be the case as the person did not know him well enough to know his parents names. If so, then he was born in Ararat, lived in Victoria all his life and was a clerk. He was not married and had no children. he suffered from the disease that killed him, for months prior to his death, and saw the doctor only the day before his death. He died in Horsham hospital 4/3/1914 aged 28 from Hydatid of lungs - rupture of Hydatid. he was buried in Ararat Cemetery by a Presbyterian Minister.
