Description

HMAT Wiltshire (A18) was one of the steamships requisitioned by the Australian Government for use as a troop transport. She was one of the ships of the first convoy which assembled in King George's Sound, Albany, WA, in October 1914 to carry Australian and New Zealand forces to Europe. Wiltshire continued such duties until released by the Australian Government in 1917.
