Mrs Sherritt: ‘They (the police) were in that position whenDan Kelly was in the room. I was put under the bed.Constable Dowling pulled me down… and then Armstrongcaught hold of me, and the two of them shoved me under.’ Historical record

A satirical title and a rather scornful portrayal, but thepolice thought the whole gang was outside and they hadheard Sherritt shot. The quilt is real. A friend who wasin the army with me gave it to me. It was made by peoplein a Heidelberg hospital. Sidney Nolan Text © National Gallery of Australia, Canberra 2010
