Betty and Harry Howarth, along with their daughter June, travelled to Australia. Her family left Southampton on the 6th. of February, 1973.
They didn't have a personal camera with them, but did buy three official pictures from the photographer's shop.
June told me that the first photo is of her mother Betty with the Captain, the second photo is of herself along with her parents and another lady (who's name she cannot remember after all this time!).
The last picture is of her parents holding two babies, who were christened on board the S. S. Australis, they would be about 36 years old now!
Beneath the photos there are a couple of PDF files that June has kindly sent me. They are of:
1. A "crossing the line" certificate.
2. Visa page showing passage to Australia on the ship.

Regretfully I am "running down" the S. S. Australis website due to increasing family and health issues.
I may occasionally update the site if I receive a great story/photos from ex-crew only
, if it is a new contact.
I know there are still stories to share from ex-crew all over the world, who haven't yet been in touch.
I am deeply moved by the interest and wonderful contributions from numerous passengers and crew over many years.
A HUGE THANK YOU.
