Biographies

Nancy Saxby ran for parliament only once: New South Wales Legislative Assembly, Blacktown, 1950. When she won Liberal Party preselection against nine other candidates, she was a poultry farmer at Bossley Park, near Fairfield in Sydney's western suburbs. After the election, she expressed her disappointment that there were not more women candidates, but she herself did not run again. Nancy Saxby joined the Women's Auxilliary of the Australian Air Force in 1942 and was a section officer when she was selected to work in close contact with General Macarthur's Headquarters in Brisbane. During the course of this duty she visited American bomber groups in North Australia. She then worked with the Directorate of Public Relations in Sydney and was promoted in 1944 to the rank of Flight Officer. Her son, John Gunn, was a sub-lieutenant in the R.A.N.
