The H.M Transport Bavarian departed the Cape on 25 Apr 1900 and on Monday 1st May, arrived in St Helena, carrying upwards of 1300 passengers. She was considered by some, but not perhaps the prisoners, to be “A Floating Palace”, being 520 ft long, 60 ft beam, 43 ft deep and registering 10,376 tons gross.

The passage from the Cape to St Helena had taken 5 ½ days. There were 10 cases of sickness, principally enteric fever, reported amongst the large number on board, 1099 of which were prisoners and in view of this the vessel and those on board were quarantined.

These were all sent to Deadwood camp as Broadbottom Camp was not opened until much later.
