Ship Summary




Arrive Date

Friday, May 12, 1967



Came to Australia with my father William Johnson. Mechanic. Mother Maureen. Sister Michaela and baby brother mark

We travelled to Australia immigrants on the Castel Felice I think 1966 0r 1967. We disembarked in Sydney. Travelling up to Brisbane by train. Moving into a suburb Inala. I am trying to find our names on a passenger list for my daughter who is researching family history. Eric Wood, Audrey wood and three sons Glyn Andrew and Paul. Any help would be very much appreciated.

I traveled on the Castel Felice from Brisbane to Southampton I think around September 1966 we called in to Aden unscheduled I believe to pick up the British Ambassador and family with his Jaguar hoisted into the deck. Trouble was brewing ! We went through the Suez Canal which was closed after in 1967 , I remember well the Bay of Biscay everyone seemed to be throwing up except me and my brother. This was our return after emigrating in 1963 for £10 . Anyone else on that trip ?
