SS Dunluce Castle info


My G.Great uncle served with the Australian Infantry 8th battlalion in WW1. I have his army records that tell me his movements after he was wounded. He died from his wounds aboard the SS Dunluce Castle and was buried at sea. I have been trying to find a photo of this ship for about 2 years and have had no success. I'd be grateful if anyone can put me on the right track .Is it possible to find out who his CO might have been.

Cheers

Thanks Dean. Obviously I hadn't seen that site. Nice to see the ship where he lost his battle for life.

Go to a site called the British Army and National Service. I have posted pictures of dozens of troopships ans this has been added by a lot of other people. If it is not posted there drop them a line and see what they can dig up.
Good luck
