As noted, the Troop ships were pre war cross channel steamers, including Anglia, Victoria, Onward and a couple of others. I have never come across comprehensive details of individual sailings for each ship. The best way to approach it might be through Ships Logs at the National Archives. A search under 'Folkestone' between 1913 and 1919 in series 'ADM' will give you a chronological list. As each Troop Ship convoy was escorted by warships, if you find the war ship log for the date of your man's sailing, that log will almost certainly say which HMTSs were being escorted.
Hope this helps.
Hi Mike, thank you so much for this really helpful stuff. I will look into it first chance i have.
you would think that there would be a list somewhere but alas not yet.
anyway thanks again.
Hello. Not all troops ships were channel steamers.My granddad sailed to Boulogne from folkestone in 1915 on the St Cecelia ,a 4411 ton cargo ship.escorted by two warships. Still looking for a photo of her.Tom
yep thanks for this and good luck with the photo.
i thought it would be too easy for only x channel steamers to be involved.
