Fine looking ship. Is it my imagination or is there something almost 'Blue Star - ish' about the appearance, though on a smaller scale? Older Blue Star, that is, not the 'slab siders'.

Medomsley Steam Shipping Co. Ltd., Van Ommeren (London) Ltd. I had a couple of old pre-sea school mates, brothers actually, who went with them. That would be in the mid-sixties.
