Remembered Today:

TROOP SHIPS AND HOSPITAL SHIPS


Recommended Posts

My grandfather, H6285 Pte. Frederick Richards, 10th Royal Hussars, was posted to India in February of 1912 and sailed out on the HT ROHILLA (Rewa).

In October 1914 the Hospital Ship HMHS ROHILLA ran aground on Whitby Scar while sailing from Leith to Dunkirk. Are these ships in fact the same one ? It is an unusual name and I wonder if the Troop Ship was converted to be a Hospital Ship.
