Double Disembarkation To-day.
Victorian troops returning on the s.s. Nestor will disembark at the new pier, Port Melbourne, at 2 o'clock to-day, and those on the s.s. Port Napier at half-past 3 o'clock. Many motor-cars will be needed to transport the invalids to the depot, and the secretary of the Royal Automobile Club specially appeals to motorists, whether members or non-members, to be in at- tendance at the pier at the hours men- tioned.
There are 550 men on the s.s. Nestor and 350 on the s.s. Port Napier. Both par- ties will be taken to the A.I.F. depot in Sturt street, where relatives should await them; but only the first arrivals will be finally examined during the afternoon. The troops from the s.s. Port Napier will be given leave until the following day. The Tasmanians will be accommodated at the Domain Camp.
