ss Prinz Frederick Willhem 1920

Classification: Query
Surnames: GIBB
I HAVE FOUND THIS INFORMATION IN ANOTHER PART OF THIS WEBSITE about this ship.....

"........In August 1914, on the outbreak of WW1 she took refuge at Odda, Norway and on 31/3/1919 surrendered to Britain, who chartered her to the US Navy Dept.
In 1920 she was chartered to Canadian Pacific who used her on the Liverpool - Quebec service, starting on 14/7/1920.
In 1921 she was bought outright by Canadian Pacific from the Reparations Commission and reconditioned at Glasgow.........."

BUT

I have a passenger list for this ship from sailing from Liverpool to Bombay. on 10th Nov 1920 on which my father Lt A.R.Gibb- Army was a passenger.

Question: Why, if the ship was designated to sail between Liverpool & Quebec to repatriate American WW1 troops was it en route to India ?
Where can I find more information about this liner and, more particularly, more detail about the Army Regiment/Unit my Father may have been with?
