    On our honeymoon in 1967 we went through Coen and met one of the guys
who had been shot.His wife was licencee at the "Coen Hotel", his record
precluded himself from the licence.
   He showed us , with some pride, a row of bullet hole scars across his
torso, from having been sprayed with an automatic .22, and told the same
story of having ended up in Cairns Hoispital next to his attacker who he had
shot in self defence.
   His story was that the adjacent landholder was shouting free beers all
day to everyone in the district at the annual Laura Races, an
uncharacteristic act which prompted his boss to send two men to check the
boundaries instead of going to the races. Sure enough they found the duffers
and the rest appears to be entrenched in local history.
