Comment

My grandmother and her 2 children (1 being my mother) sailed on this ship when it returned to the UK at the outbreak of WW1.

My grandfather, Colonel E.W. Latchford and the rest of the Australian officers seconded to the secret mission to NW Persia, called Dunsterforce in 1918, used this ship to cross from Italy to Egypt.
