Remarks:
There is some doubt about the origins of SUDAN. She may have been assembled at the Thomas Cook shipyard at Boulac, Cairo from a supply from Bow McLachlan. Alternatively she may have been a rebuilding of one of the WW1 hospital paddlers that were in Egypt in 1920, possibly with a new engine.
