Migrating to Australia, 1960

In June 1960, my family and I embarked on the journey of a lifetime when we migrated from Leeds, England to begin a new life in Audstralia. We had been granted Assisted Passage, in which ensabled us to travel to Australia by ship at the cost of just ten pounds per person. We became what were known as Ten Pound Poms. This diary documents our journey.
