Ned Kelly: Australian Ironoutlaw
I'm saddened to report the passing of Chester Eagle last night. He was aged 87. Chester had a great innings and right until the end he was still writing. He was, during one of our last conversations over a glass of red, planning on writing a 'what-if' surrounding the Gang's plan to derail the police special. No doubt it would have been a cracker of a read. For those of you luckily enough to have met him, either at our 2018 'Australian Son' weekend in Greta or out and about around Melbourne, Chester was one of those unique worldly types that knew what to say and when to say it. He will be sorely missed but his life work lives on at his website www.trojanpress.com.au – so please visit and read his extensive 120+ books – they will keep you entertained for many months! R.I.P. Chester Eagle (1933 - 2021)...For those of you not aware, Chester was great friends with Max Brown and it was he, on Max's passing in 2003, that took it upon himself to assemble a working manuscript from the seven volumes Max had distributed to family and friends (including Ian Jones) for comment. It took Chester months comparing each page to compile the final draft that became the revised edition of 'Australian Son: the story of Ned Kelly' by Max Brown which is still available today. That publication stands as a testament to two great men of Australian literature, Max Brown and Chester Eagle. ...

Our man who keeps his powder dry, Alan Crichton, is back and this time he has set his sights on the well lubricated Alexander Fitzpatrick and his less than exemplary police record: www.ironoutlaw.com/keep-ya-powder-dry/entrapment-at-the-eleven-mile/ ...

Impressive bottle and label design makes this a great collector's item. And yes, I actually bought this from their website. Although I must say in taste, NED's more whiskey (bourbon) than whisky (i.e. it's sweeter). #nedwhisky #nedkelly #drinkresponsibily ...

The inaccuracies in Rebecca Wilson's book 'Kate Kelly' have caused quite a bit of consternation particularly around her unfounded claim that Kate and Constable Fitzpatrick were the parents of Alice King, the baby Ellen Kelly took to the Beechworth then Melbourne Gaols. To read what Kate's descendant Ellen Hollow has to say, and to view a timeline of the events by Mick Fitzsimons, jump over to our Feedback section on the Ironoutlaw website...www.ironoutlaw.com/feedback/ ...

The rumours are true, Alan Crichton and 'Keep Ya Powder Dry' are back! After surviving a horrific fall into a vat of red wine where he valiantly fought off his rescuers for over four hours, Alan eventually succumbed to dehydration (after drinking the said vat dry) and was magnanimously hauled into rehabilitation where he has spent the past twelve months. On release Alan headed straight to his local Chiltern IGA where he bought out their entire stock of liquor (even the vanilla essence). Back to his witty self, Big Al has put quill to parchment and pumped out his latest instalment of 'Keep Ya Powder Dry'. You can check out his mad ramblings via the link below:www.ironoutlaw.com/keep-ya-powder-dry/a-long-awaited-visit/ ...

Our own Paul O'Keefe throws in his opinion on what influenced Ned and the boys to build their iconic amour. Check out the Pom's Daily Mail for the full story...A Japanese samurai costume tucked away in a regional Australian museum could hold the key to what inspired bushranger Ned Kelly and his gang to don suits of armour for their last stand. ...

I'm looking for a decent image of issue 522 of 'The Rover' which was published by DC Thomson & Co on 16 January 1971. The comic inside tells the tale of 'Ned Kelly: Outlaw from the Outback'. I'm currently building an online data base of all the comics Ned has appeared in - so any help would be appreciated! ...

There's no doubt the banks hold as much fascination towards Ned as what he and the boys did towards them, particularly what was in their safes. Yes, there's another commemorative coin release:www.downies.com/ned-kelly-2020-5-2oz-silver-proof-coin ...
