Lots of Czechs!

This SCMP newsprint column tag 'Mammoth Ship' in the 29 April 1920 edition attracted my attention, but more interesting is that it was carrying 7,000 Czech troops when moored off Holt's Wharf. As a mid-European country with no obvious interest in the Far East what were they doing in the area? Shanghai interventions perhaps?
