Hi Mary and welcome, good luck with your request!!
I may be able to help. If you go to <mnnostalgia.com> and go to 'related sites' there are one or two Blue Funnel sites. There may be someone there who can help.

I take it you were a passenger before the vessel was handed to the Australian Goverment for use as a Hospital Ship. She was as you may know sunk in 1943 while fully lit as a Hosp Ship with heavy loss of life.
Am not sure which port you went to but IF it was Fremantle send an E mail to the Fremantle Port Authority. Attention. The Harbour Master ( ex Blue Funnel) if he has not retired by now. They will and do have the passenger lists in their archives, but it takes a hell of a big shovel to get them to dig them out. You will need dates as close as you can of arrival. maybe even voyage No and of course names.
