Thanks all for the info on the forum, I have just received data from the daughter of James that confirms the 1925 boat Persic and the penciled in James Forsyth! Basically he left home on 24th Sept in Scotland signed up for the boat and left Liverpool Docks 26 Sept 1925 arr Adelaide 9th nov 1925 discharge paper off boat 10th nov 1925, then he delivers Clydesdales to Mr J D Dawkins at Newbold Gawler River, then starts work at James Maitland Clydesdale Stud, Anama Station 24th nov 1925, He marries in Nov 1931 at Ironmine Methodist Church then moves to Spalding in Feb 1942, and in July 1942 moves to Laura. He died at Adelaide in Oct 1967. Finally another piece in the jigsaw puzzle. Would not have been possible without the forum help. Much appreciated!
