The idea that the ship "David Clark" (no final e) was intended for South Africa is not borne out by any other record. Nor is there any other record of Arthur running a butcher's.

2017-04-28 18:34 q.m. Jack Lang and Mr McAuley standing in front of a building, New South Wales, ca. 1930s (Version)
Here we see NSW Premier and Labor Party leader Jack Lang (left)...I gather the chap on the right is Harold McCauley, a former journalist, who during Lang's term as Premier worked as a government publicity officer...when Lang was Opposition leader, he was employed as Lang's private secretary.<br/><br/>I haven't yet managed to find this pic in the digitised newspapers...so given the vagaries of the NLA Fairfax captions, I wouldn't be too emphatic that this is Harold McCauley...<br/><br/><a href='http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/129041735...
