She was built for the African Steamship Company and registered in London - in 1930. In 1935 she was transferred to Elder Dempster Lines Ltd and registered in Liverpool. Like a number of other major shipping companies there were a number of divisions and ships were transferred between them. I notice that the Edward Blyden, another Explorer class was built for British and African Steam Navigation Co Ltd was registered in Liverpool. Bob
