At the start of the Twentieth Century some cargo liners on the Australia / New Zealand service had certificates for huge numbers of steerage class emigrants. The clue is that the ship was on the round the world service. Sounds like a White Star/SSA ship to me
Well done lads Tyndareus is correct. I amended the QE when trooping as she apparently carried 5000. What a disaster that would have been!
Tyndareus struck a mine when trooping and almost sank, fortunately with no loss of life.
She went on to be a favourite Haji ship.
