In 1949, the passenger ship Georgic arrived in Australia with the largest number of emigrants ever to arrive on Australian shores. She was the last ‘White Star’ liner built before a merger with the Cunard Line and in total there were 1,994 British migrants on board; many of whom were ex-servicemen who became interested in migrating after they returned from the War.

    Based on the age of the children some of those children might still be alive to tell the story of this photo it would be nice to see someone could find one of them
