About

This diary provides a detailed description of Betty Northmore’s life as a stewardess onboard the Passat. She details her duties as a stewardess as well as the weather, activities on the ship and descriptions of other crew members. Her voyage on the Passat started from Port Talbot to Port Victoria in 1948 and occurred as a part of the famous Grain Trade Races which ran during the mid-20th century. As one of the major windjammers during this period, this diary connects South Australian maritime history to Europe through the documentation of windjammers in the global maritime trade of the early to mid-20th century.
