Nancy Bentley is the heartwarming true tale of a 6 year old who was bitten by a snake at Port Arthur in 1920. There was no doctor and her father had to row her out to a naval vessel in the bay for treatment. No women allowed on board in those days, so she had to be inducted into the Royal Australian Navy. The rest is history!
