Interesting to note the portholes in the foc'sle space , so did she have accommodation for'd ?.
I know that in the " bad old days" there used to be accommodation forward on some ships , but I thought that had all gone away by the 1940's.

The portholes in the f'oc'sle were for the "kroo boys" who would join in Freetown or Monrovia . Stay with her for a week or two and some would bail out in Lagos or Douala.
