Australia's Unfinished Business

"Smithy's international contribution makes its demands. History presents its bill. It is the unique ability of a great and genuine Australian achiever that is the real issue behind the search for the Lady Southern Cross. That point should be understood. The bill must be paid. The unwritten final page must be written. It is owed to Smithy."

Ted Wixted
("The Life and Times of Sir Charles Kingsford Smith" p.245)
