Your mission, should you decide to accept, is to discover the recipe for genuine beef tea as served on Cunard ocean liners usually about 11:00 in the morning on deck; it would be served with a type of digestive biscuit.
No, it wasn't Bovril, and some research indicates that it was known as "beef tea" rather than "bouillon", and it may have been made from scratch - raw beef simmered for hours, strained...and so forth. But surely there was a recipe! There are a few accounts online of beef tea being served on deck.
