I hadn't viewed the image when I posted the details Reply #69

Maxwell G was an AB (Seaman)

Thank you. I do have quite a lot of information about the barque 'Collooney' but that was new to me.

The SS 'Leura' was built in Liverpool in 1878 and seems mostly to have shuttled between Sydney, Melbourne and Port Adelaide.

No death of Maxwell Sim in South Australia.
