I welcome information on any passengers on the voyage to Melbourne Australia aboard the "Georgic" which berthed in Melbourne in January 1949.
I have located the incoming passenger list for the Georgic arriving in February 1949.
You will be able to view the digital copy via the following link.

Many thanks Leslie for the information.
I was a young child on board the Georgic. I have in my possession a professional photograph of myself dressed in a kilt and a young lad who was also dressed in a kilt, tartan socks and a hat. I believe the photograph selected us two as we were dressed in kilts. The young lad was not known to my family. I anticipate that he would now be aged in his mid to late 70's.
I am hoping that I can find out the name of the lad.
Perhaps a fellow contributor to the site may be able to assist.
We actually arrived in the Port of Melbourne on January 10,1949.
You look lovely!!
I won't name him here as he may still be living. His family were going to Sydney.
I don't know why the father isn't here, but he was onboard:
Here is the list into Fremantle - page 66
Doreen, his Mum died the following year in 1950 and the family returned to Scotland in 1951 on the 'Strathaird'.
Their address was 26 Seafield Drive, Ayr.
I am overwhelmed with the information & links that you have sent me.
I was oblivious to the fact that the photograph in question was in a Newspaper.
A photograph of my brother & myself arriving in Melbourne was on the front page of the Melbourne Sun Newspaper. I purchased the article & had the entire page converted to a framed poster and proudly have on display in my home.
I shall enquire as to how I can purchase the article that you located.
You have filled in a missing gap for me. I am sincerely grateful for all your assistance.
When you open the newspaper page have a look on the left hand side of the OCR text and you will see a line of symbols and one is a shopping cart (when you hover over it is says 'buy'). Just click on that and follow the links to Copies Direct.
Thank you for the information.
I have now placed an order to purchase the entire page.
Hopefully, I will soon have a "pigeon pair".
Your assistance throughout this research has been sincerely appreciated.
