Bushranger Frank Thomas never harmed anyone but many feared he was behind every bush and about to pounce.
Meeting a bushranger was a chief dread of Mrs Maude Greenwood of Manell Farm in Waddy Forest. Her defence, which she kept at the ready, was a matchbox full of pepper. To use her own words she "would be a missing quantity by the time the bushranger stopped sneezing."
