    BIOGRAPHY: Gert was apprenticed to a book binder and learnt leather work. When
    she arrived in Sydney she worked at John Sands, and was 2nd in charge of the
    storeroom. She gave up her job when she married Billy Mason. However, he was
    killed in a tragic accident on a building site. A wall collapsed, and as he ran
    from it he tripped and was crushed. This was soon after they married. Although
    her old employer had kept her job open, she never returned to work. Instead she
    lived in the house they had settled in, surviving on Billy Mason's war pension.
