an 'Operation Jaycee' ship - More than 350 British migrants arrived in Australia this month aboard the liner STRATHAIRD under Australian Junior Chambers of Commerce sponsorship in one of the largest migrant projects ever conducted by a voluntary organization. Under the scheme, the Junior Chambers found jobs and accommodation for particular British families, met them on arrival in Australia, and took them to their new homes. Three year-old Gillian Hague enjoys an ice cream at the reception for Victorian families given by the J C after the arrival of the STRATHAIRD.
