They returned to Australia with Marjorie and her daughter Winnie accompanying them for a 6 month holiday, on Thursday 16 Dec 1926 on the Ventura (Matson Line).

John Joseph (JJ) Rouse was a co-founder of Baker & Rouse and later was a founding managing director of Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd. He travelled overseas several times to visit the Kodak head office in Rochester, USA and Kodak Limited in the UK.
