  • Description

    The arrival at Rio de
    Janiero of fifty-two Tristan da Cunha islanders on route to their remote South
    Atlantic home.

    Film shows the islanders disembarking Monday (1 April) from the British mail
    steamer Amazon. They are the advance party of 200 former inhabitants who will
    return to the island in October...two years after a volcano eruption forced them
    to abandon it. The group is scheduled to leave Rio Thursday (4 April) on the
    steamer Beissevain, due to arrive at Tristan on 11 April or 12 April.

    The film shows the ship arriving in port, and men, women and children coming
    down gangplank.

    Tristan da Cunha Islanders returning to island after long stay in England. 52
    people, men, women and children...the first returning to their island. Aboard
    the "Amazon" taking another ship in Rio (Dutch ship) on Wednesday.
