Southampton – 5th June 2021

On 22 September 1921, Jack and Mamie sailed out of Southampton for Africa on the Dunluce Castle. It was decreed at the time that missionaries had to travel First Class and so they had a cabin with electric light. Mamie wrote home, rather wistfully that there had been a dance and concert in the out-of-bounds Third Class with a very good violinist. They would be on this ship for six weeks.
