Personal Information    |    Sources    |    All    |    PDF

  • Name Herbert Lockett (Cargie) RYMILL 
    • The unusual nickname of 'Cargie' (pronounced Carjee), did not come about from his rifle shooting days as commonly thought. In shooting for the Adelaide Gun Club he used the name 'Teksum' (musket spelled backwards). In the early 1900's there was a play showing in the Theatre Royal in Adelaide - in it a clown character named 'Cargillo' was a pigeon slayer - and so this name seemed perfect for Rymill and was eventually shortened to 'Cargie'.
