Hi, Paul. That mode of transport for sheep for short voyages was common in those days (these days it's not much better). As to your question: 1,006 were loaded at Fremantle; 3 died & were committed to the deep during the 4-day voyage to Singapore, where 1,002 were counted off. The discrepancy of 1 was probably due to the excellent lamb curry the crew served us en route

What a cruel way to transport live animals on the deck of a ship,wonder how many didn't survive.
