We disembarked at Sydney on the 20/08/62, I was only 4.5 years old but have some memories of the long trip, I do have some photos of the Orion onboard. A few years ago I did manage to find the ships passenger log for that voyage online, feel free to contact me. reply Your Stories Your name * E-mail * Post your story * Submit Leave this field blank Share this Page Share this voyage with your friends and followers online.
