At the next Noble Numismatics auction is a picture of the Persic but there is no image of the lot.

Described as:

BOER WAR, print of a painting of the Boer War transport ship, S. S. Persic, mat framed under perspex with a decorative golden timber frame (approx 70x52cm), together with research. Uncirculated.

In 1899 S. S. Persic transported British troops to the Boer War and after some repairs she took home Australian casualties from the war. During WWI she served again as a troopship until she was torpedoed by a German U-boat. Despite being damaged she was able to make it back to port under her own power. After the war she was refitted as a passenger vessel with the White Star Line.

Original sketch glued on card board depicting unloading of goods, probably at Durban, in the first months of the war. This sketch is unsigned (M.T. Maud?, G.K. Jones?) and was meant for publication on 23 November 1899 , probably in the Daily Graphic.
