"Re Lady Russell".
Smith details the events of Thursday, 7 June, 1934. "Two representatives to-day proceeded by car to Southampton docks, and on their arrival they watched all passengers board the tender which left the docks at 3 p.m. No lady answering the description of Lady Russell was seen to leave by the tender." Smith writes that upon the tender's return at 6:50 p.m. no gentleman matching Griffin Barry's description departed. They searched the luggage at "B" bay, but none bore Griffin Barry's tag.
"A Board of Trade official searched the official passenger list of Europa, but the name of Griffin Barry was not shown on the British or alien list, neither did it appear on the printed list of the steamship co's bookings."
