The ship JAVA, which I am researching.

This is the ship JAVA, said to be the last of the East Indiamen I have been researching since about 1985. I obtained this image from New Zealand this year. It was taken in Gibraltar Harbour in 1933. It has been built in India in 1813, brought my ancestors to Adelaide in 1840. It served as a troop ship for HM Government etc.
