A popular biography of Frank De Groot, the former hussar and Irishman, who in 1932 famously 'opened' the Sydney Harbour Bridge on horse-back wielding his sword 'in the name of decent and respectable people of New South Wales'. Brian Wright's colourful history, based on his own extensive research and De Groot's own papers and writings, picks up the story of Frank De Groot on that infamous day and then investiagates the strange and curious court-case that followed the incident and the fate of the sword. Brian Wright's book is a quirky narrative non-fiction title in the tradition of The Surgeon of Crowthorne.
