Journey Notes

Via Capetown. Final voyage to Australia.



I travelled from Tilbury to Sydney February 1957 with my mom dad sister brother I was 9 at the time we were the king family we were tpp anyone on this ship then

In February 1957 we left Tilbury U.K. to go on our journey to a new life in Australia it was amazing to see all the countries we had seen las Palmas cape town Durban then across to Fremantle Adelaide Melbourne then finally Sydney

Hi Shirley, I was on that voyage with you. I was 11 so we probably did school together. What a journey! We saw interesting places and finally arrived in Melbourne and instantly became Australians!

Myself & my brother Brian travelled with our parents on SS Otranto from Sydney to Tilbury departing in March or April 1957.
