Harriett & son Peter departed Liverpool 15.10.1927 for Melbourne.  Harriet Slater was b 1893 and Peter 1914 so ages match up

May not be the same family - address given was Rotherhithe

This outgoing passenger  entry took my eye in view of the name Leadley

24.12.1913 from London to Adelaide - all surname Wright.  Peter & Harriett married Dec qtr 1913

Sarah 47
John 5
Peter 20
Leadley 18
Albert 11

Geoffrey/Bernice & Brian must have been born in Australia - no births in England 

When did the family arrive in Australia
