Ex Gordon Darge. [Troopships 30-34 departed 9.10.1915 & arrived at Suez 27.11.1915. Assigning numbered datestamps to particular ships was of little purpose. The numbering remained chronological, meaning that if a ship made more than one voyage, a different number was assigned for each voyage] (Qty 4)
