Sorry, no prizes , but can anyone guess what ship and/ or company? Clue - a British company with a history going back to 1856. There is a slight twist! Also look at the line around the funnel beneath the whistle - has it been repainted?

Paul
No sorry that's not the ship. This ship only wore the above colours for a spell in the latter part of it's life. If I say the Furness Withy group, that is another clue although how many companies were there in that Group? The yellow funnel was carried whilst this ship engaged in voyages within the Atlantic Ocean area rather than the Antipodes - 1973 period. I'll give the picture a week or two to attempt identity!

So is she the "Drina", "Darro" or "Durango" - or none of the above?

Hi Dave
You got me confused there! Yes it is Shaw Savill's Cretic/ Drina photographed in Montevideo. Royal Mail funnel but I sailed on her as Cretic. Dec 72 to Feb 73. London to Brazil / River Plate and return. Good ship and crew. I remember Capt J Rutter and C/O Pete Hunter were Royal Mail through and through. I would be interested to hear about the ship's period in RM colours - how long etc.

My records show the Cretic being transferred to Royal Mail as the Drina in 1972. She remained with them until 1977, when she was transferred within the Furness Withy group to Blackhall Shipping for sale. She then was sold to Lancaster Shipping of Singapore as United Vigour. She was scrapped at Kaohsiung at the end of 1978.

What a picture I sailed on the Drina on her last voyage to New Zealand and I didn't recognise her funnel!

Greetings Paul

During my time on the Cretic (1969- 1971), linkages to both whistles failed as we were going through the Panama Canal, I drew the short straw and climbed out onto the funnel to operate the whistle following signals from the bridge wing. Still deaf in the right ear!!

I was on Cretic in 1967 and we always had problems with whistles - even then. Very happy ship......................

Whilst on the Cretic I bought a watercolour painting out in NZ, I got a big one thinking it will look good on the wall at home, SWMBO thought different and it was consigned to the attic. A few years ago the glass broke and over the years the colour of the funnel has slowly changed to a light blue shade from the original SSA buff, all other colours remain the same. Boy does it look strange to see the old girl looking like a 'Blue Flu' boat!

This goes to show that Beige is the new Black! (Thanks to Terry Wogan!)
