Summary

Margaret Warby was awarded the Queen's Gallantry medal for bravery during the Granville train crash. The accident occurred on 18 January 1977, when a morning commuter train from the Blue Mountains in New South Wales derailed, bringing down a road bridge on to several carriages, with 83 people killed and 213 injured.
