Boggo Road Prison
BOGGO ROAD PRISON Author - Stephen M Gage


 Books written by former officers.


1)            Boggo Road Prison - Riots to Ruin 2009, is the third known authoritive writting on Boggo Road Prison Complex by an officer. I have endevoured to present the book indexed and with a comprehensive list of officers that served there over a long period. The list will be built upon as the years progress and will become an authoritive presentation for researchers in the coming years.



(2)            Boggo Road & Beyond by Tom King 2007, Tom's book is a work of much thought, but like Roy's, there is no index. This book will be a good research tool in the future, especially about the conduct of Queensland Corrective Services Commission.


(3)           Nor Iron Bars a Cage by J R Stephenson 1982, Roy's book is fairly well compiled for the era, but dissapointing in that he did not use his own title for the work. The title was used on at least two other occasions over many years in England. Even in that era a few photos would have been nice.
