Yes, I'd agree Summity.
To the left appears to be Northland Prince, following being bought for the St Helena service, for whom she operated as St Helena - she later had the funnel altered, before being replaced by the current St Helena.

Summity and sister had a V16 Polar engine, and as such were not Yellow Perils. The name was a reference to the much earlier under powered vessels in Everard's fleet.

Top sail schooner STS Malcolm Miller or Winston Churcill to the right of the Fred vessel.
Vessel to the left became RMS St Helena, operated by Curnow Shipping of Porthlevan. She used to call at Ascension and Tristan as well as St Helena

Thanks to Pilot mac for suggestion and members for confirmation.
Thanks too to Krispyship for ID of NORTHLAND PRINCE.

I assumed all yello hulled Everards were 'yellow perils' so it is good to be informed
that it was not so.

Thanks to kernewekmarnor for tidying up the vessels.

I see that the SUMMITY ( as SUMNIA) capsized at Dover, was she ever raised and scrapped ?
update; just found this link;http://www.bbc.co.uk/kent/content/articles/2007/09/28/1987_storm_coastguard_video_feature.shtml

thanks to member bdelerue

I think its the Sir winston Churchill, due to the portholes under the Focsle, after looking closer I see the Malcolm Miller is inside of her. Was one of Freds called the Suavity ?
