The name doesn't look like "Historian" on the stern? The funnel appears to be Shaw Savill & Albion - on charter possibly? Can't quite make out the house flag but the masts/samson posts/derricks have a Clan Line looking colour to them?

Who is she please?

Harrison had five ships named Historian and none of them resembled this ship. Furthermore, this ship's funnel is not painted in Harrison's colours.

I had Historian written on the slide but I stand to be corrected although I was careful when logging photos.

Reckon Joseph is correct. Have fiddled about with the photo imager and it is a two part name looking suspiciously like 'Castle'.

Reckon you're dead right Paul, looking at the photo of "Tintagel Castle"! Now she's been named, I suppose the mast colour is the Cayzer, Irvine influence, but I still reckon she's on a Shaw Savill charter - there's no Union Castle red in this funnel!!

There appears to be some sort of black device on her funnel; also on the other pic??
