Slade S.H. Young Englishman proceeding for station

experience. Lately with Messrs. Dalgety &

Company, Fremantle.


["A Case of a Young Englishman", Daily News (Perth, WA), Friday 29 March 1912, page 8]


Among the passengers on board the Koombana for Derby was Mr. S. H. Slade. He was a young Englishman, who came out from the London office of Dalgety and Co., Ltd., to the Western Australian branch, and was making his first trip to the Nor'-West.

["Story of the Koombana", The Sunday Times (Perth, WA), Sunday 31 March 1912, page 12]



Now that it appears more than probable that the Koombana no longer exists, the personality of the passengers who most likely have shared her untimely fate will be of interest. Amongst them are several well-known people, and it is quite possible that some of them may have left the ship at an intermediate port.


Mr. S. H. Slade, who was en route to Derby, was until recently engaged at the offices of Dalgety and Co. at Fremantle, and was proceeding to the Nor'-West in order to gain station experience.
