About Us

Six Bob Tourists is a non-commercial venture based on a private collection of Great War ‘social media’ – postcards, photographs, letters, diaries, newspapers and family histories. Over the past decade the collection has grown from just a few postcards to many thousands of items, all the work of two mates who happen to be related – Gary ‘Tex’ Houston & Glenn Houston of Melbourne Australia.

This is not a military or historical site about those who went away to war, it’s their story in their words – or at least the words the censor would allow.

Our aim is to share the treasures we have gathered, and to encourage others to do the same, so that together we might understand just a little more about the lives, travels, mates and families of those who served between 1914 and 1919.
