Ditto on John's comments. What is that type of cargo gear known as, at 3 and 4 hatches?

Cargo gear I`m guessing at Hallen/Velle or a variation on them.

I spent a couple of years sailing on the Bristol City Line, a great company to work for but sadly my time was on the Fort and Park Boats, but yet they were good feeders, great crew and the runs from Avonmouth to New York and Montreal could not ben better.

Seven men died on this ship during construction at Doxfords when vaporized hydraulic oil ignited in the shaft tunnel
