Re: [TSL] Omega - London to Calcutta 1854

In the London Times of 12 Apr 1852 is an ad

For Port Adelaide direct (last shipping
day 12th May, under charter to Government, and has only room
for a few tons of goods, the nearly new ship OMEGA, A 1, 705 tons
register, S. POTTER, Commander; lying in the London Dock. This
splendid first-class ship made a very fine passage to Adelaide last year,
and has just come home from Bombay in 97 days. She has a full poop,
with spacious accommodation for families, and will embark passengers
if required at Plymouth. For freight or passage apply to Captain
Potter, on board, who has just returned from Adelaide; or to
Lachline and M'Leod, 62, Condall.

She appears in the Ship News in the Times many times as she made her  
voyages over that time period.

Regards..

Marj
