    Greg Kelly wrote: Billy Dundee grew up and went to school in Melbourne Victoria (Australia). A truck driver used to drive up to where I worked delivering steel from a steel works in Melbourne who went to school with Bill and also joined the circus with him, the guy ended up having a mid life crisis about six years ago and quit truck driving to go back on the trapeze with a Melbourne circus. When I first met him his wife and he had just returned from spending a few weeks with Bill in Tennessee..
