Tracking Frank Thomas
Three Springs police constable Charlie Kroschel engaged skilled Aboriginal tracker Joachim Dido to help find the whereabouts of bushranger Frank Thomas. Over two weeks in the cold of winter they traversed the country across Winchester and Coorow. It was later remarked that Dido hadn't helped as much as he could have, as he didn't want the police to capture Frank!
