Quite a regal station

Tuesday 20 March 2012

The Brisbane Courier-Mail newspaper published this letter to the editor on Wednesday 5 May 1937, under the heading Coin­cid­ence of names:

Sir,​—​I think it is rather interesting to note that the three lightkeepers recently stationed at Cape Moreton Light­house were named L. R. King, H. P. Earl, and L. Marquis, making quite a regal station.​—​I am, sir, &c.,
             H. P. Earl.
             Mary Street, Wynnum.
