No. This photo is off another site and I made the comment there that it was of the "Ethylene" type. Lady Olga was not a flatiron.
Cheers, Geoff

In the book Gas and Electrity Colliers on page 55 there is a good photo of Lady Olga from the WSPL,she is a 'flatiron'
Built 1927,breaking up began 1958.

Ouch! Didn't realise my memory was THAT bad! I do recall she had a sister "Sir David" and I think the pair of them were laid up in the Sunderland south docks for a while. You wouldn't be able to post a scanned photo of either of them? :-)

Hi,
Thank you for the info, the photo is not off another site,it is a B/W photo which I have in my possession,bought from my local market.It says Lady Olga on the back,but as you say it must be wrong.
cheers.

A long time since I posted to this photo. Since then I've acquired a copy of "Gas & Electricity Colliers". I think if the photo says she's Lady Olga to believe it. On detail differences there are only 2 other possibilities (albeit both good ones) - Homefire (Austin) of 1925, and Fireglow (also Austin) of 1925. Not even Sir David is a match (thinner funnel).

I remember going onboard her in Seaham to find out when they were shifting and the steward was in the wheelhouse serving the grub down to the Captain and Mates in the saloon.!!!!! Kinda small... If memory is correct, there used to be a Sir John as well.
