    Does anyone have a copy of this book? Does the book list the units that were onboard? I think my Grandfather sailed on WS 4

    There were actually two, WS4A and WS4B. No comprehensive list of units onboard.

    All the best

    Have you tried the War Diary for your Grandad's Regt?. In my Dad's case the ships are shown:

    Tony56 and bamboo43 like this.

    Not my subject, but older threads have shown some soldiers have written / spoken of their stop in Durban, notably commenting on the hospitality shown by families. Might be worth a search with the unit in focus plus Durban?
