Donald Robertson pic of her off Greenock in October 1946. Built by Lithgows at Port Glasgow as EMPIRE GALAHAD she was completed in 1942 and became CELTIC STAR in 1946. I wonder if this is her on her maiden trip under that name. She was later renamed MURILLO, BOGLIASCO and OCEAN PEACE and scrapped as that in September 1967.

I think that she might have completed her second voyage. She was handed over by MoT to Blue Star on 1 April 1946. From copies of Lloyd's Shipping Index I have here ...
