Further comments

Town of birth in Germany could be "Gutscane", but cannot find it.
Cannot read name of ship, or find one similar - something like "Electric".
Resided in Benalla, Whittlesea, Queensborough, and Winton - no idea how long.
A letter asks for her husband's original nationality and whether he has been naturalised. She is also asked to retake the oath of allegiance as she has had it certified by the wrong person. By the time this happens the whole thing has been disbanded and handed over to the "Commonwealth" to deal with.
