UPDATE - Research by a Friend in Adelaide
Arrived Adelaide Assisted passenger - Domestic Helphers
Johan McAskil arrived 2nd October, 1923 on the ship "Esperance Bay".
A following file stated:
She was born on 28th February 1901 at Inverasdale Ross Shire. She was engaged by Mrs E McNickael of Menindie North Adeliade (an elite suburb of Adelaide).
She took a loan of 20 pounts to be paid back at 2 pounds per month from November, 1923.
