ArticleJean Caswell Benson compiled the family chronicles that provided the basis for the book "A Wide Spectrum" which contains an account of the Stacy family and its collaterals; the Shelley, Harris and Caswell families.
ArticleEPILOGUE
Jean Caswell Stacy trained at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, and in 1933 joined the Lady Minto Indian Nursing Association. As nursing sister to reach her cases she had to travel widely throughout northern India and at Ajmer (Rajasthan) she met Alan Benson a UK?trained professional engineer (b. 1905, Liskeard Cornwall) whom she married in March 1937 at All Saints Church, Tumut, NSW. Alan and Jean Benson returned to India later in the year, and to Ajmer, where he was Production Engineer at the Metre Gauge Locomotive Workshops of the Bombay, Baroda, and Central India Railway, during the time when they were building 15 locomotives a year. Before long they were transferred to Mhow, in Central India, where Alan Benson was District Mechanical Engineer, taking with them their daughter Beatrice who had been born in 1938.

In September 1939 World War II broke out, and in early 1940 Alan Benson was seconded to the Indian Ordnance Factory at Jubbulpore, Central India, situated near a large Army Cantonment area. Here he took over as Power and Maintenance Engineer. By 1943 the area had become India's principal Munitions Complex. Whilst in Jubulpore two more children were born, Christopher (1940?1961) and David (b 1943). But by 1943 the war-worn Indian Railways were showing signs of strain and Alan was recalled to his railway job, taking over as Works Superintendent of the Broad Gauge Locomotive Workshops at Dohad, 400 miles north of Bombay. Thence, in 1945 after Peace was declared, the family were granted long deferred Long Service Leave, arriving in Sydney in October of that year.

However in March of the following year, leaving Jean in West Australia, Alan had to return to duty. The reason that they went there was that the two older children were both nearing school age, and as was the usual procedure they would have to be put to boarding school. WA was so much nearer than NSW. However Alan Benson hoped to be allowed to resign as the B.B. and C.LRIy was already Indianised, and he did not wish to go to the Senior job offered to him in New Delhi. Reluctantly he was permitted to resign. He received his superannuation but not the retiring allowance given to all a few years later. He was only 40 years old.

Having served his six months notice Alan returned to Perth. It was a very happy reunion and the family returned to NSW. Later Alan's mother came from England, and visited us there.

Alan Francis Benson was educated at Sherborne, Dorset, England, where he showed outstanding "classical" scholarship but turned to engineering, and after four years in the L.N.E.Ry workshops was to qualify (in time to come) as M.LC.E. (UK), and M.I. Mech. E., as well as M.I.E. (Aust).

Of all the people mentioned in this book, there are only four people who are able to claim that their grandparents had been born a Stacy, a Caswell, a Harris, and a Shelley.

These people are Jean Caswell Benson, Arthur Llewellyn Stacy, Muriel Hamlyn Andrews, and Gordon Neville Stacy.

They all have grandchildren, and they all have family papers. Perhaps one of them will "Write us up!". By then it will be Family History. And I feel sure that it will still be A Wide Spectrum.
