    Notes 
    • Claude, as he was known, completed most of his schooling at Brookton, Adelaide and Hoyleton. he went to Pinnaroo with the family in 1924 and there met and married Beatrice. After marriage the couple went dairy farming for a while at Murrabit. However the Mallee soon pulled them back, (Claude used to say that he got sick of water running into his gum boots) and they went farming at Paruna.
      There, amongst other things, Claude was Chairman of the local District Council. Later with maturing sons, Claude and Beatrice were to leave the Mallee and head for a wetter climate, carving a thriving dairy farm from mostly virgin scrub at Parawa, south of Adelaide. When son Maurice took over the farm Claude and Beatrice spent their retirement in Victor Harbour. (The Tucker Family in Australia, 1992)
