|Name:||Alex Auswaks - Known amongst Betarim as Dubon (nickname bestowed by Danny Rosing)|
|Joined Betar:||6 February 1942 (on my eighth birthday) in Tientsin, China|
|Why?:||'cause my hero was on parade and I was told that if I joined Betar I'd be on parade behind him and I did but he returned to Harbin and was executed by the Japanese auhorities. I stayed.|
|Wot've I been doing since I left Australia?:||Went to UK for six months but lost return ticket and stayed there till 1989, when I came to Israel, and couldn't find the railway station to go back. Was a thoroughly bad college lecturer. Then a cheerful copy editor.|
|Where I live:||No landlord or landlady anywhere would take my cats and me, but a kindly Aussie landlady agreed to take us in and the apartment is in Jerusalem. As usual, can't find way out (I was always bad at scouting).|
|Wot I do, cobbers:|| At present, under orders from our esteemed Webmaster am trawling my (lousy) memory for
the early history of Sydney Betar. Writing Jerusalem: Something for everyone. Reviewing
for www.crimebuff.com. I am, of course, a very considerable authority on Jerusalem cafes. Come visit and I'll shout youse lot a selection of my favourite.
|Orders of Chivalry:||As I am also secretary of the Israel League for the Restoration of the Monarchy, Harry Stuart gets a special Order of Chivalry for this website. Cups of coffee for anyone correctly answering: "Why is this Knight different from other knights?"|
|Cheers to anyone who remembers me. Do keep in touch.
Please email the Webmaster for his address. - Editor
