Manage episode 212539761 series 1122501
At a concert on board the ship home a scene had a "map of Australia depicted by boxes placed together with lights in them. Behind was a tableau, a "digger" just arriving home, met by his mother and his grey-headed old father, the latter holding a little child in his arms. It was very touching, and brought a choking pain into one's throat and a dimness to one's eyes." Then, at Adelaide when the ship docks, Percy hears some terrible news.
This one covers the trip home on the SS Anchises, sight seeing in South Africa, Adelaide and Melbourne. It's a real buzz-buzz, whatever that is!
