Gibbons, O. (1919). On 10 December 1919 the Vickers Vimy was sighted approaching Australia by sailors aboard the HMAS Sydney, 100 miles from Darwin. Upon seeing the ship, the Smith brothers and crew dropped a message in a bottle which was collected by the ship’s crew. It said “Very glad to see you. Many thanks for looking after us. Going strong.”
