Smile Australia Calling re SS Ottinge

Gentlemen,

Thanks to you all for your efforts on this one. Looks like the photo will come from the British Maritime Museum. Unfortunately it comes with a copyright so I won't be able to post it
Port Cities Hartlepool, very interesting site I was able to get info from that on another vessel called Empire Sunbeam which was also built at Hartlepool,thanks for that Gdynia.

Regards Clive.

Dear Clive,

Just saw your info posted in 2006 asking for information about the Ottinge. I do have a fair bit of info as my grandfather was Captain of this tramp steamer during the 2nd World War. Info about involvement in disastorous Atlantic convoy out of Liverpool. Spanish Civil war (damaged by Franco's planes in Valencia harbour). Rescue of German crew of Panamaian tanker off the Canadian coast in 1953.
Before imparting with more detailed info and copies of newspaper accounts etc, I would like some more information as to what exactly is your interest in this ship?

Best Wishes

Owen

The ship that was bombed in Valencia was not the Ottinge. This was his previous ship. Sorry.

Aa Ottinge 142322

hi

I am doing some research into my partners family and it seems his father sailed on the SS OTTINGE in 1930. I think she was registered in London and sailed out of Cardiff. Do you have any information on what happened to her or a photo?

regards

Jenny G
