Note:
The SERAPIS (sp) was one of five purpose built troop transports built
in 1866. 6211 tons, one funnel, three masts (rigged for sail), single
screw and a speed of 15 knots. Each ship was designed to carry a
complete battalion of troops and their families (about 1200 persons).
The Indian Government covered the costs of running the service but the
Royal Navy operated the ships. She maintained the Indian service for
almost 30 years, but was withdrawn in 1894.
Before the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869, the SERAPIS sailed
between England and Alexandria, but after this she sailed direct to
India. A great advance in troop transport when she was first built,
she had lagged far behind other contemporary merchant ships in comfort
and amenities after nearly 30 years in service, and was then much
criticised.
