Out of interest RMS Ivernia transported the Collingwood Battalion, 2 Companies of Hawke Battalion and 1 company of Benbow Battalion of the RND plus Engineers to join the MEF in Gallipoli. She left Devonport on 12th May 1915 arriving at Lemnos 10 days later on 22nd May. This included a one day stop at Malta to refuel. So 9 days in total.
