Constantia and Clan ?

Constantia and Clan ?

In Great Float, Birkenhead, 17th Sep 1960

I think it might be Clan Chattan or Chisholm but I am open to correction.

Thanks
The Allen Collection has a shot of the Clan MacDougall from a similar angle to mine but the two don't match.
Anyway as far as I can make out there seems to be only about eight letters after Clan.

There was a Clan Campbell built 1943 and transferred to King Line in 1961. Don't know what she looked like though! (?HUH)

The Allen Collection only lists one Clan Campbell but built in 1937 and she doesn't match. I can't find an image of the one built in 1943 but 'Campbell' certainly seems to be a better fit to the letters as far as I can make out.
I'll double check at L'pool Record Library when I next visit.

A recent check in the Journal of Commerce of 19/9/1960 reveals that the vessel berthed with the Constantia in the East Float is the Glen Campbell.
