@cherrie,
Thanks - but why Old Dart? Never heard of that one before!

@vonny,
It was a term used by convicts and early settlers referring to England, possibly a corruption of the word 'dirt', meaning the home country.

@cherrie,
Thanks for that. I did try to Google it, but there seemed to be different views on it - yours sounds about right.
