I am in possession of an original copy of a war digest for the Boar War. The SS Booldana was used to transport troops to South Africa from Bombay. I am not familiar with how ships are requisitioned as troop carriers but the Booldana did at least one run leaving Bombay on 19/09/1899 arriving Durban 05/10/99 (not mentioned on the site). I am family history researcher and sometimes a snippet can help put pieces together. Hope this helps somebody now or in the future. Please see excerpt attached.
