Brisbane Region / Dent Island Lighthouse
K3064


      

Picture 1970 made on board the m/v Straat Clement. Robert said that from this lighthouse a sick member of the lightkeepers family was brought to a Brisbane hospital by a KJCPL ship. After that event all the company's (KJCPL-NEDLLOYD) ships where saluted from this lighthouse, and they saluted back with there horns.
It took me 30 minutes to find out which light it was.
