Killed by a Bushranger
Bourke cemetery has lots of historic graves, a great place to wander around reading the inscriptions.
There are several graves for Police Officers killed while on duty. There is one, I can't remember which was caused by some ruckus at the Royal Hotel. The Royal Hotel is now a former Royal having been renamed to the Port of Bourke hotel sometime ages ago. I have posted it in the Royal Collection as a Fergie.
We are moving on from Bourke tomorrow but I will pop back to this cemetery each Tuesday so show you more and participate in Taphophile Tragics.
