CAMERONIA's turbines

Part of an advert for Beardmore showing this Anchor liner's turbines and double reduction gearing.
She was completed in 1920 becoming EMPIRE CLYDE in 1953. Cashmore's at Newport scrapped her in October 1957.

I always enjoy seeing engines opened up - particularly turbines and trying to figure out the arrangement.
The turbine nearest camera looks to be of the Impulse type with a three row and a two row Curtis wheel - possibly an Astern Turbine.
The eleven row stages look to be of the Rateau type. I am thinking that the turbines may have been of the Brown-Curtis type. John Brown being a licensee of Curtis.
