Somerton man

This really upset me! I worked at the Opera House when Robin was a dancer in the Aus ballet! We dated for a bit and I was about 20 at the time / 1974/5... he had a red MG sports carand would drop me home but I remember staying at his mums house in Sans Souci! He was a lovely guy but a bit older than me so I was too silly to pursue anything - I was a teaching student and way too scatty!I was shocked that he died so early!!! I hope they find out who he is dad was! His part in the story deserves more attention
