Biscuits & Beer

I have mentioned before that the Sinclair branch of my family tree has links to a certain iconic Australian biscuit maker, but it seems that same branch also has links to another iconic Australian.

Samuel Robert Sinclair b.1882 d. 1964 - the (half) nephew of Monica Sinclair, the first wife of William Arnott - a Blacksmith at Bermagui was the inspiration for this logo


Well, at least according to a footnote in this book. So there you go, Arnotts & Tooheys. Biscuits & Beer.
