The Aussies & Their Strange Cargo #RugbyWorldCup

England take on the Aussies tonight at Twickenham in the Rugby World Cup. 


The ship that brought the first Australian rugby team to tour Britain – the SS Omrah – way back in 1908 also carried a cargo of 116 passengers, 1579 bales of wool, 2729 carcasses of mutton, 4650 carcasses of lamb, 2000 quarters of beef, 4800 crates of frozen rabbits and 200 tones of lead and copper.






A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
