Kylie Stevenson: The mystery at Larrimah

Posted on: Tue 20 Sep 2022

During WWII thousands of soldiers were stationed at Larrimah in the Northern Territory about 431 kms SE of Darwin.  When Kylie Stevenson and Caroline Graham arrived to begin research for their 2021 book, it had just a handful of houses, 11 people (since Paddy went missing) an unmanned museum, a teahouse, a few sheds and of course the Pub.   The huge headline on a laminated sign on the wall of the Pub read  ‘Missing.  What happened to Paddy?’
