Be aware that the 2 is not part of her name but refers to the fact that she was the second of the name in the fleet.

There is a photograph of her as a Boer War Transport vessel in the book Glen and Shire Lines by Cooper, Harvey and Laxon published in 2005 by Ships in Focus ISBN 901703-65-7

new image glengyle 2

Hi,

I believe we've just loaded a new image of the glengyle 2 here:
http://library24.library.cornell.edu...1~1~947~100016

in Cornell's Kroch Asia Rare and Manuscript collection online image database , Willard D Straight photo album. It's in leaf 5, lower right hand image. You'll have to download the pdf to see the name of the ship clearly ((Miyoshino), Maru Segoshi). (Zoomed in browser view has artifacts).
