George Farrow, a passenger for Derby, went aboard just before midday. He was farewelled by a friend who then walked down the wharf to take the SS Orvieto for London. After arriving in England he wrote to Mr A Searle of the Northam Brewery, telling how he had seen George Farrow off on the Koombana.
Was George still aboard beyond Port Hedland?
