The caption to this photograph is incorrect. The Kyarra was in Melbourne on the 4th Dec 1914 arriving there (from Brisbane via Sydney) on the 28th Nov 1914 before departing for the front on the 5th Dec 14. The boat never stopped in Adelaide at all. The Medical units and staff form Adelaide had to travel by train on the 27 Nov 14 to go to Melbourne. The place and date of the photo is 4th Dec 14 at Victoria Dock Melbourne. I am writing a book about one of the medical units. Kind regards Scott (0411325945)
