Ship "H.T. Ixion"
« on: Monday 08 July 19 07:53 BST (UK) »
I've just received the service records of a relative and one entry dated 9/8/1919 was "Embarked H.T. Ixion Liverpool". So he served in India with the Welch Regiment so this was obviously his ship out but its the H.T. bit that I'm wondering about. The SS Ixion was a merchant ship built in 1912 and sunk by U boat in 1941. I'm assuming that H.T. is an army designation and means Horse Transport. Am I barking up the wrong tree here?

Thanks.
