    Aotea Passenger List (August 1896)
    Short version of the passenger list for the Aotea, departing London on 5th August 1896 and Plymouth on 8th August 1896. Harold Wooster is on the list along with the other people mentioned in the newspaper report of their arrival into New Zealand in September 1896.
    It would appear that most passengers from England disembarked at Cape Town
