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:

Ned Kelly: Australian Ironoutlaw

Further to our visit last weekend to Stringybark Creek and the Kennedy Tree, we unfortunately noticed the destruction of the undergrowth surrounding this 230+ year old tree. Numerous plants (that had been growing since the 1870s) were ripped from the ground in violation of Victoria's Native Vegetation Act. Luckily this vandalism has not gone unnoticed by the relevant authorities and, fingers crossed, the imbecile in question will get his just deserts. As is befitting such a low-life (and his associates) they complained that A Guide to Australian Bushranging was picking on them! So the bots at Facebook took down the post. Luckily Aidan kept a back-up and, after adding more details, he has posted the full story on IronOutlaw.com. You can read the gory details by clicking on the link below:

Needless to say many of the exisiting signs will need to be updated with details of the correct locations. #TheKennedyTreeReport #StringybarkCreek #NedKelly ...
