And bear in mind it was sixty three years ago this month that the original Big Mac drifted through these parts. ----------------------------- Terowie is a little town about 60 clicks out of Burra in South Australia and it holds a special place in world history, in particular World War II. It was on the platform at Terowie that General Douglas MacArthur gave his legendary speech after escaping the Philippines - "I came out of Bataan and I shall return". The speech
