There was another old Cornish-man working on the Garden Gully line noted for his insatiable appetite for Cornish pasties. For his lunch each day, or, as he called it, for “krowst,” he would bring an immense pasty about 18in. long. He was a man who looked ahead, for, as a young man, on the point of leaving Cornwall for Australia, he had tattooed on his chest his mother’s recipe for making a Cornish pasty. Later on, this was of great assistance to his Australian-born wife. Taken from “Stories Of The Cornish Miners” http://home.vicnet.net.au/~bendcorn/miners_in_bendigo.html
Some of my ancestors worked mines on the Garden Gully line. I wonder if they knew this man with the pasty recipe tattoo.
