Thats the Orsova, not Orcades
You may be right, but what is the visual difference between them? I took this photo while working at Tilbury B Power Station and often saw these ships taking on passengers at Tilbury in 1967/8. I wrote 'Orcades' on the slide at the time.

Definitely ORSOVA. 1. Back of the funnel is raked. ORCADES was straight up. 2. No radar mast above. ORCADES had a mast above the bridge. 3. The bow is quite flared. ORCADES had less flare.

Thanks. Good 'working' photo.

Thank you Stephen; I've checked other photos, taking into account your observations and agree, it is the 'Orsova'. Thanks again.
