Waratah - 'my last voyage'.

The Sydney Morning Herald, Saturday 17 December, 1910
'It was untrue, Mr. Laing said, that Captain Ilbery, of the Waratah, told the captain of the Mongolia, 
"This will be my last voyage unless the Waratah is materially altered." 
The captain of the Mongolianever met Captain Ilbery.'
This extract reveals that claims made at the Inquiry were not always truthful. One does sometimes wonder where the truth lay.....
