Coming to Australia

WIP

Ray finished his middle school years in Zhaiqing in 1948. Shortly after this, he came to Australia to join his grandfather, Ah Young. 

The trip from the village to Australia was in steerage

His original purpose to come to Australia was to continue education. He bagan some schooling in the form of English classes but he soon decided he would rather work at the market garden. His student visa was exchanged to become a replacement worker on the family market garden so Ah Young could retire.
