I am trying to find additional information about my Grandfather Bert Webb (b. 1900 in Great Bowden, Leicestershire, England) who went to Australia on the shop 'The Borda' from London to Melbourne, departing on 10/02/1925. He returned to England sometime before 1933, when he married my Grandmother.

I would love to be able to find out what prompted him to go to Australia in the first place (my mother always maintained he was a sheep farmer whilst out there), what he was doing while he was there and when/why he came back.

I am at a bit of loss as to where to start and would be very grateful for any assistance.

Many thanks in anticipation.
