'Travelling to England in the R.M.S. Mangalore, the Browns of Bangaroo–an Australian country family, consisting of Mum and Dad, twenty-year-old Cynthia, and flapper Betty–are having an exciting and romantic time. Romantic–yes, Cynthia and the second officer, Ian Travers, find romance enough. And now, at Port Said, Betty plays gooseberry.'
'The Browns of Bangalore', The Australasian, 26 June 1937, p.9.
