Mr. A. W. Padbury, who died suddenly last month at the age of 56, was a member of one of the early pioneering families of Western Australia. He followed the family's interests in farming and stock breeding and at the time of his death was recognised as a leading authority on stud stock.

Prior to 1942, Mr. Padbury conducted the Koogan Estate, at Koojan, in the midlands district, and the horses, cattle, sheep, and pigs he bred on that property won the Governor's Cup at 11 Perth Royal Shows in 17 years. No other exhibitor has won this award on so many occasions. Mr. Padbury also judged cattle classes at Royal Shows at Melbourne, Sydney, and Adelaide.

In 1942 he joined Elder, Smith and Co. Ltd., Perth, and as manager of the stud stock department was widely known and respected, particularly as an authority on Merino sheep.

He is survived by his widow, four sons, and a daughter.
