Year 1960

Mrs. Nancy Barrett embarked on the first official "patrol". Using her own car and away for a week at a time, she visited as many stations as she could in one direction (from Alice Springs), spending half a day at each and staying at a different station each night. The "patrols" were so successful that the Commonwealth Government went on to provide the vehicles and expenses for future trips.
