About This Item

Adelaide: 'Printed and Published for Lieut. A.T. Penglase, by J.L. Bonython & Co.', 1919. First Edition. Paperback. Very Good. Adelaide, 'Printed and Published for Lieut. A.T. Penglase, by J.L. Bonython & Co.', [1919]. Quarto, 32 pages with numerous illustrations. Pictorial wrappers lightly marked and creased, with some expert conservation (sealed tears, with minor loss to the edges filled in); mild signs of use and age; overall a very good copy. A 'Chronicle of the doings of the last Australian troopship to reach South Africa and find that their services were not required, as an Armistice had been signed but a few days previously' (foreword). The extensive Nominal Roll (pages 25-31) contains about 1200 names. The contents are a little more sobering than the usual troopship journal. The Honor Roll (page 24) list 29 men and women, all but one of whom died from influenza after the ship had returned to Fremantle on 12 December (this number includes four nursing sisters). A further three pages are devoted to accounts of the Spanish influenza that raged through the ship, having been brought on board by infected local stevedores at Durban.
