HMS Lancashire

I have been asked to building a model of HMS Lancashire I believe she was a repair/troop ship during the 2nd WW. I have found 4 photos but would appreicate any information.
Thanks
PJG.

Bibby Line owned the Laancashire, and you can see her here;

She was originally a four-master but, her mainmast was taken down, to allow her wartime AA armament, on the bridge wings, a 360 deg. field of fire.

Hopefully not for unpleasant reasons. I am in the closing stages of completing a Liberty ship model, in post-war livery, but I can't get around to putting the final touches to it. I started it so many years ago and, have built a couple of other models during that time.

Anyway, press on regardless, as was once said.
