  1. Ned Kelly was very brave to save the 7 year old boy from drowning in that river. I wonder what river it was. It said in the video that his suit of armour would have been about 47 kg. They would not have been able to run. It seemed quite mean to have his mother close enough to hear the execution. A few years ago they found his bones and he got a funeral.

  2. What I think about Ned Kelly?
    WOW!!! I never thought he was so bad but the bravest thing that he ever done was when he save a 7 year old boy from drowning in a river, AMAZING! The other thing is that he is a hero to me but he isn’t to any others. When I went to the Melbourne Gaol, I saw Ned Kelly’s death mask, and it was cool as. I also saw how tall he was and he is pretty short, so I was thinking that all the armour would of came down to his feet???
