The "Lorraine" in which Edward Gerald Chisnall and 20 other army cadets from the school cadet force made a visit to the WWII battlefields of Flanders in August 1928. He wrote a card to his parents in Layham, "Crossing rather rough and many were seasick all over the place but I wasn’t." See also pa915 and 916. (The visit was subsequently recorded in "Narrative of the Territorial Army Cadet Battalion Tour in France and Belgium 1st-8th August 1928" published by the Territorial Army and Air Force Association of the County of Warwick. We hold a copy.)
