You've got it BG over to you.

Eddie Mabo (c. 29 June 1936 21 January 1992[1]) was an Indigenous Australian man from the Torres Strait Islands known for his role in campaigning for Indigenous land rights and for his role in a landmark decision of the High Court of Australia which overturned the legal doctrine of terra nullius ("nobody's land") which characterised Australian law with regard to land and title.

Early life and family

Mabo was born Eddie Koiki Sambo[1] but he changed his surname to Mabo when he was adopted by his uncle, Benny Mabo.[2] He was born on the island of Mer (Murray Island) in the Torres Strait between mainland Australia and Papua New Guinea.[2]

Mabo married Bonita Neehow, an Australian South Sea Islander, in 1959. The couple had seven children and adopted three more.[3] One daughter, Gail, is an Aboriginal artist[4] and dancer who works with schools in New South Wales as a cultural advisor[5] and serves as the family's designated spokesperson.[6]

The face jumped out at me, but it took a few hours to figure him out

Is it Victor Borge, Ken

He was famous for playing the piano, while sometimes acting the clown

Thanks for that, Ken

A few posts ago we had Kaiser Bill, the man who ruled with an iron hand

This one should go quickly

This Lady once said
In politics if you want something said, then ask a man
If you want something done, then ask a woman

Or words to that effect

Who is this 11.jpg

G'day Sheba. Sorry not him. The Medal is the Victoria Cross. He was the ? of Australia from 1961 to 1965. He was the last of these appointed and the last to wear ?

 That should really give him away.

Cheers.
