A ship named Sussex

Hi All

Can anyone clue me in on a ship (transport?) named the Sussex? All I know is that from one source it carried troops from Alexandria in Egypt to Lemnos Island prior to the landings at Gallipoli on 25 April 1915.

Thanks

Ian

That's not my fault. It's the only info I and Dave have found. Perhaps the OP has not got the correct name? I am sure it would be mentioned on the net if it had been sunk as this one is.

Try a different county, the S.S. "Suffolk" certainly did what the OP states.

Of course not. I did not mean to imply that you were personally responsible for failing to deploy SS SUSSEX to the Aegean in 1915.

I know you didn't, I should have put an exclamation mark!

But it does seem that it is the only 'Sussex' Listed and the OP could have given incorrect name.

Thankyou all very much for your input. Please don't have a blue on my account and poor knowledge of ships and navies!

Cheers

Ian
