Menu - SS Stratheden, P&O Line, Dinner, 17 Aug 1963 Reg. No: HT 1365
- Dinner Menu from the P&O Line Ship SS Stratheden for the 17 August 1963.

During the voyage James avidly collected the menus and approached the steward to obtain extras but he was unable to collect a full set. On arrival in Australia they stayed with James' brother-in-law and then purchased land in Altona almost immediately, where they have lived ever since.
- Shipboard menu approx. A5 size cardboard. Front cover of menu has a coloured image of Australian flora which includes a forest daisybush, desert rose, pink flannel flower.
