Eat My Dust!
Bushranger Frank Thomas was captured in May 1922 and taken to Geraldton Gaol, arrested on charges of stealing and unlawfully using horses. A fortnight later, he picked a lock in the exercise yard and escaped to freedom. For the next 140 days he continued his thieving ways but with greater enthusiasm and over a larger area, extending into the Murchison.
