    Documents

    Discharge Certificate.

    Frederick Lee Mallett had to serve part of his apprenticeship working on board a ship, in this case the SS Enmore. This vessel used to travel regularly between Britain, India and British Guyana in central America collecting indentured migrants to work the plantations in Guyana. It is not known if Frederick actually travelled overseas, but this document shows that he only served on it for 4 months. The name of the vessel is interesting and coincidental, as Enmore in Somerset has strong Mallet associations.
