|Game of bowls in England from the late 1800s|
Emma Wiles, from NSW, visited a bowling club at Paddington, London, while on a world tour with her husband.
As the men played, Emma started chatting with a woman member and told her she was keen to know about Paddington.
"Why are you so interested?" the other asked.
Emma replied: "I went to school at Paddington, Sydney, and our English teacher suggested we write to schools in London with, if possible, the same names as ours. I corresponded with a girl named Emma Forsyth."
Emma Wiles says her companion turned quite pale, and then said, "You are Emma Hart and I am the Emma you wrote to."
Tears welled in their eyes, so much to say, so much to talk about. The pen-pal episode had begun 50 years ago, and now the two women called Emma had met by 'chance'.
