New South Wales Imperial Bushmen
It is interesting to note the conditions of the camping area in which they arrived. Dead horses left to rot on the ground. The problems of loading and unloading the GS wagons was also highlighted. Without careful loading, items would not become available when required. There were strict regulations regarding the order in which a wagon should be loaded and if not adhered to or understood, problems would surely follow. As to the unloading wagons, the complaint related to the lack of candles to illuminate the unloading area of the camp, something which caused an additional difficulty to the drivers of the wagons.
