Karalta is the story of Jan Bentley, an English war evacuee who comes to Victoria, Australia for her safety.  Jan has no mother and her father is a sea captain.  Jan befriends Gerry Burton, who is a dispatch rider in the Army.  He is based on Mary Grant Bruce’s son Jonathan, who served in World War II in the Australian Military Forces, and later the Second Australian Imperial Force’s 7th Division Signals Corps in the Middle East before Prime Minister John Curtin historically, and successfully, recalled the 7th Division home after the Japanese took Singapore.”
