Subsequently he visited other parts of Europe. He was one of the products of the Point McLeay Mission Station, and wrote the illuminated address which was presented to the Duke of Edinburgh on behalf of the natives at the station 60 years ago. On the occasion of the Royal visit,
Pantonie accompanied the Duke on a shooting expedition.' The Adelaide Chronicle, January 19, 1918. https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/87540909
