SS Borodino

The Wilsonís vessel Borodino was requisitioned several times by the admiralty. Used in 1914 to lodge German nationals, as a supply ship at Scapa Flow later in the same year and finally as a blockship in Zeebruge in WW2. However I have noted that the vessel was also requisitioned and used as a store ship in Aden in 1935. Does anyone have exact dates etc. of this deployment and whether Wilsonís continued to man the vessel.
Thanks.
