17th June 1916

Embarked on the Kalgan at Alexandria, bound for Marseilles, France.


This is the Kalgan II, which was built after the war. I would consider this image representative until a photo of the original Kalgan can be found. Information about the original Kalgan can be found at the bottom of this page.
