    Description
    Wallabies were released from a nearby private zoo into the Roaches, Staffordshire, before the war, and survived in the wild around the Roaches and the Dane Valley. This photograph (along with three others) were taken by myself during the winter of 1962 - 63. I had thought that the wallabies had since died out, but they still survive in the area, though sightings are quite rare.
