Happy New Year to all!
Am looking at the Service Record of a WW1 Vet. and am having trouble with the following references; they appear from 1918 through to 1919.

Dreel Castle (Shrewsbury)
Gunner (")
Ganges (")
Attentive II (")

The word in the bracket looks like Shrewsbury - but I can not work out why?

Later in 1920 the following appears
Columbine (Whitley)

Can someone clarify these references for me - are they ships or Landbases - I believe that the 4 above were Landbases.

G'Day all - Happy New Year
I am hoping that someone can give information on the Relief Ships that were sent to assist the British in the Boxer Rebellion. My wife's ggrandfather was one - he maintained until his death that he was part of the Relief effort.

Hi Trish
Thanks for the quick reply - I have the information from Tasmanian archives but was hoping to find the connect at that end - ie back in the home country.
Thanks though

Hello kind person/people
Just wondering if anyone can help by having a small look (hopefully) for the surname Greenough in Lancashire.
How many Greenough's existed??
Clutching at straws - I know of only one - but he was transported to Aust in 1829 - was wondering how many were left behind??
Ashe ;)
