Hallo Iain, Nice bit of info that. Thank you. Yes, probably my grandfather sailed on it when it was a troopship. Sylvia.

Perhaps the connection is that "Corsican" was used as as a troop-ship
during the Great War. Please see:

> Hallo agaiin, I know that RMS Corsican was one of the ships taking people
to Canada. But, my father Charles Ross also had "Corsican" as his middle
name. He was born in 1920. My dad always said that his father called him
this name after a ship he had sailed on. Now, my grandfather had never
sailed to Canada. But he had enlisted in 1897 into the Suffolk Regiment.
He served in Karachi, Malta, amongst others. Then he re-enlisted in 1914
and served in the First World War. However, I can't seem to make the
connection between this ship he had served on and his army service. Any
ideas, thoughts, info. suggestions please would be most welcome. Thank you.
