AdDecBel If we were well behaved, we could be given a 'ticket of leave' after our sentence which usually lasted seven years.
AdDecBel We were then free to become a settler here in Australia or return to England. I decided to stay here in Australia.
AdDecBel Though if we misbehaved, we were sent to a place of secondary punishment like Port Arthur in Tasmania.
