Boreham Back Across the Tasman

When F W Boreham was in Mosgiel he became involved in local politics, primarily in the cause of the Temperance Movement.

Soon after he arrived in Australia he returned to NZ for a month to conclude his part of the campaigning.

He went on board the Maheno, which in WWI became a hospital ship and years later went aground on Fraser Island (the second of the ships Boreham traveled on that sank!)
