HMAT Zealandic

I have a copy of the war diary of HMAT ZEALANDIC returning to Australia in 1920, which I believe is the earlier ship of that name, built by Harland & Wolff (also torpedoed in 1941). The war diary contains a daily log, hospital register and report by the S.M.O. Personnel numbers were: 13 ship's officers, 17 crew, 10 nurses, 5 returning troops officers, 268 other ranks, 412 women, 173 children and 9 civilians, total 907. Unfortunately it doesn't include a full passenger list but some names are mentioned.

My grandmother emigrated to Australia on the ship with three young children, leaving England on 27 March 1920. My grandfather had transferred from the RN to the RAN when the latter first came into existence.

regards,
Martin

Hi
I am researching the family Mulholland, and William Thomas Mulholland and his wife and child? travelled on the Zealandic 1920 back to Australia. Wondered if the name was mentioned in the diary you mentioned, or do you know where I can find a passenger list. Many thanks janban41
