This brings back memories, my mother was taking myself and my siblings on the 10 assisted scheme, but they refused us because my Father had died and classed us as an incomplete family!
Kind regards Maria

My uncle and aunt went to Aus as 10.00 poms in the fifties. I was grown up and married by the time I saw them. Thanks for showing us, Sam.

You're welcome, Andrew. On closer inspection of the ticket, I see poor Joan was always destined to come to Australia. Her middle name is Bruce.
