Famiglia Lorieri

Marie Donnelley (nee Lorieri) has emailed to make an inquiry and also to told me a little about her family's story: 

I was browsing the web regarding EPT and found out that you had done some research on EPT as your father had worked for the company in the mid 1950s.  My father came out with the first of the men from SAE in 1951. He was actually flown over from Italy to Australia – we, my mother and my sister and brother followed and arrived by ship in June 1952.  He, too, was a rigger and linesman and was at the original camp at Menai/Engadine and worked throughout Australia until he finally, due to his age, worked at Marayong.  Unfortunately I do not know much about his work history as I was only 6 when we arrived here ...
