    • From Violet Turner 1967. Page 18
      William Howard Batley, born Petersburg, on 16th April 1911. Howard, as he was called, became a school teacher, but the Second World War interrupted this work. He enlisted in the R.A.A.F. becoming a flight lieutenant and navigator. Resuming his studies and teaching after the war, Howard became A.U.A. Dip. Ed. He was Deputy Headmaster at Elizabeth. and Head Master at Whyalla, Evanston and Seaton Park Primary Schools, which latter position he still retains. On 7th January 1938, he married Petra Schultz., an assistant at the Koonibba Aboriginal Mission. The ceremony was held in the Lutheran Church of the Mission. Petra had a teaching appointment at some of the schools where her husband taught. They went for a world tour in 1965, during which Howard taught for some months in a school at Luton, England. Their present address is 5 Short Road, Elizabeth. There are two children; John Garth Turner, (born 8th December 1938), sub-manager of Elder Smith., Bordertown. who married Rosemary Bateman (born 11th December 1938), of Millicent, and Margaret (born 8th April 1941), School Teacher, who married Terence Gray (born 12th October 1938), at Millicent where they still live.
