Born in Portsmouth, England, he was the youngest boy in a family of twelve children. The family migrated to Perth in 1911 before settling in Sydney after six months, where they settled in Balmain. Eric left school at the age of fifteen, where he spent the next six years in the country New South Wales and Queensland, working as a boundary rider, rabbit trapper and in shearing sheds. A visit to Angus & Robertson bookstore, whilst visiting his family in Sydney, led to the discovery of a book on drawing. He afterwards reflected: 'I learned to my surprise that art wasn't necessarily a gift divine but a craft that could be studied and worked at'." en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Jolliffe

In another topic someone mentioned "it's coming home". Somehow that rang a bell, softly. Got churning in my memory and finally I found it
"Coming home, I'm coming home Let me show you who I am Let me show you I'm your man I would give anything just to see you again Coming home, I'm coming home Let me show you that I care Let me show you that I share I would give anything to see Jeanny again Coming home

TTFT: Sorry, got the 2nd syllable of the 3rd word wrong: The joke should translate as 'My mate's girlfriend has just left him, saying she couldn't put up with his obsession with football any longer. He says he's really upset, they were together 7 seasons,
