Never heard of this ship being involved in the Zulu War.

"CHINA": 1862 - 1906

Gross Tonnage-: 2,638, Dimensions: 99.42 x 12.31m, Number of funnels:1,Number of masts: 3
Construction: Iron, Propulsion: Single screw,Engines: Geared oscillating, two Service speed - 12 knots
Builder: Robert Napier & Sons, Glasgow. Passenger accommodation: 268 1st Class, 771 2nd Class
The China was launched in October 1861 and made its maiden voyage from Liverpool to New York on 15 March 1862, continuing this service until 1865 when it began to sail the Liverpool-Halifax-Boston route. This service continued until 1867. The Liverpool-New York service was resumed for the period 1868-72.
On 21 September 1872 it sailed from Liverpool to New York but had to put back to Queenstown with a cracked cylinder. In 1873 compound engines were fitted by Barclay, Curle & Co., Glasgow. In 1874 it resumed the Liverpool - New York service until 1880 when it was sold to Spain and was renamed "Magallanes". It was also employed as a transport in the Zulu War in 1879. In 1889 it was sold to a Norwegian firm, renamed Theodor,and converted into a four masted barque. On 2 March 1906, whilst sailing from Tampa to Yokohama, it went missing.

Hi John,

"China" was owned by the Cunard Line and was hired by the Royal Navy as a transport ship after the Battle Of Ishlandwana when Lord Chelmsford asked for reinforcements.

"China" brought 28 officers and 897 men of the 94th battalion from Southhampton, embarking on 26th February and disembarking 2nd April, 1879 at Natal.
