Journey Notes

Friday morning arrivals included the White Star steamer Medic, from Liverpool. She dropped anchor in the Semaphore roadstead about 9 a.m., where 1,220 tons of general merchandise will be lightered. The vessel left Liverpool on December 10, and during the early portion of the voyage heavy weather was encountered. The Nedic, however, behaved well, and before reaching Capetown on January 6, better conditions were met. Departing from the latter port the same day as arrival a good run was made across to Albany, reached on January 21, while at this port a wedding took place on board. Mr.Gibson, of Perth, was married to Miss.Wilson, of Dundee (Scotland). The ceremony created much interest, and the passengers presented the couple with a gift. Capt.Lobez gave the bride away. During the voyage games of chess were played by means of wireless with the R.M.S.Britain. They resulted in one win for each vessel. Through the medium of the interstate steamer Riverina news was received by wireless about 500 miles to the westward of Fremantle, concerning the wreck of the Shaw-Savill liner Aotea, off Capetown. The Medic, on arrival, had 300 passengers, 30 of whom landed. Register 28/1/1911.
