Joybell Ned Kelly to Have a Funeral (50) RE: Ned Kelly to Have a Funeral 25 Jan 13


The saying, "Game as Ned Kelly" comes from the last moments of Kelly's freedom when he faced the police in his interesting armour. Understandable. It didn't necessarily mean clever or brave. When I first heard it it was used in an ironic sense. The thoughts expressed by settlers like my family were those of relief when the Kelly Gang was captured.
