Australian Troop Transport four-page newsletter 'The Dixie', sub-titled 'No.1 H.M. Transport A7 at Sea', issue 1 January 1917 - 'Published for Troops on Board'.

The newsletter's editorial notes that the ship lacked a printing press and thus the issue was produced using a typewriter (lent by Mr Franks of the Salvation Army) and a hectograph duplicating device possessed by Mr Davey, the Chief Stormeman. It was printed by Cape Times Limited, Cape Town.

Troop Transport A 7 was S. S. Medic.
