Then if that is definitely related to a twin-screw ship, probably the same engine, but geared somehow to two shafts (somewhat unusual, I think). If re-engined with a couple of old steam engines, then would have probably had two compound 2cyl units (normally, but oddly, written in LR as C4cyl).

Or maybe LR never got good information on the conversion in South Africa.
