Note: Those in Italics were last minute additions and do not appear in the printed list. These were printed in by my Grandfather, Lt. Wilfred Thorp Beaty, on his trip returning from serving in the Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve (R.N.V.R.) following WW I. Most of those in italics were comrades of his.


Captain R.B. Reford, R.B.S. Reford, or Robert Bruce Stephen Reford. He was then Captain in the Irish Guards. His father, Robert Wilson Reford, was the Canadian director of the Cunard Line and ran the Cunard agency in Montreal. His company, the Robert Reford Company, still serves the port of Montreal, as it has done since 1866. This information from his grandson, Alexander Reford, reford@refordgardens.com.


Further information about first class passenger Capt. Bruce Bairnsfather, courtesy of Mark Warby, Mark_Warby@oldbill99.freeserve.co.uk. Mark edits and publishes a bi-monthly newsletter for Bairnsfather collectors and enthusiasts worldwide.

Capt. Bairnsfather was b. in 1887 and d. in 1959. He served in France with the Royal Warwickshire Regiment and later was given the title of "Officer Cartoonist", and toured the French, Italian and American Armies in France.

Bairnsfather's most famous cartoon showed two "Tommies" in a shell hole amidst a barrage of enemy fire, one saying to the other, "Well, if you knows of a better 'ole, go for it!" He was also the creator of the well known character "Old Bill".

Bairnsfather was on the "Adriatic" bound for New York, on route to Australia, where he had been asked to go at the request of the Australian government, to aid recruitment. His travelling companion was the Hon. Hugh D. McIntosh, a well known Australian businessman. Due to Bairnsfather becoming ill in New York he never made it to Australia, but spent three weeks in New York, where he was feted and dined, and received immense publicity. While in the city he attended the opening night of his play "The Better 'Ole" on 19th October 1918. This trip was particularly significant, as it was his first visit to America. He writes about it in detail in his autobiographical works, "From Mud to Mufti" (1919) and "Wide Canvas" (1939).

"From Mud to Mufti" has just been republished in England for the first time since 1919, along with Bairnsfather's other book about his career in the war, "Bullets and Billets" (originally published in 1916) in a special omnibus album including a comprehensive biography of the man, facts and figures, maps, extra illustrations and a glossary.

Mainland U.K. residents may purchase this book for 7.99 with postage and packing free (retail price is 9.99). For all overseas customers (those outside the mainland UK), the book is 14 with postage and packing included. [Currency Coverter - will open in new window] Payment must be in pounds sterling either in cash, by cheque (drawn on a British-based bank) or by international money order.
