Another of John Callis's photos, taken at Gravesend. The ship would have discharged her homeward London cargo and is leaving for the Continent.

Another beautiful picture of a classic Glen Line freighter, Hugh, wonderful! Built by the Caledon Ship Building & Dry Dock Company, Dundee, in 1939 she was 9,919grt, LOA 507', Breadth 66' 4" and had a service speed of 18 knots. On delivery she was taken over by the Admiralty and converted into a fast supply ship, flying the white ensign as HMS Glengyle. For those interested in her extensive war time exploits try this link: http://www.red-duster.co.uk/GLEN10.htm . You will need to scroll down a little for the history. She briefly became Blue Funnel's Deucalion (5) in October 1970 but only until June of the following year when she was broken up at Kaohsiung.
Regards,
Alastair

Hugh/Alastair
Marvelous photos of as you say `classic` vessels & long may they continue to arrive on SN. I somehow doubt if todays modern box boats will aquire `classic` status in 30/40 years time? Only time will tell, but most have hit every ugly branch on their way down the slips or floating out basin.
