Summary: The second of a two-part program. Sydney's Coq d'Or restaurant was sold to a French couple in 1947 but in 1951, its new owners, Francisco Tunica y Casas and his wife Jeanne were forced to leave the country because of their association with communists in Sydney and in New Caledonia. By 1952 the restaurant was closed and Elaine Haxton's mural painted over. The Tunica parents settled in the New Hebrides, while their son was allowed to stay in Australia to finish his schooling.
