Three Shaw Savill ships built at Belfast in 1909-11 were the first cargo steamers in the New Zealand trade to exceed 10,000 tons.
They were the "Rangatira", "Waimana", "Pakeha" and the "Zealandic" All four were 14kt ships with large refrigerated and general cargo capacity and the provision for 1000 emigrant passengers.

Hi Brent,

This run of Shaw Savill seems to have dried up, so I would personally like to thank you for some classic images.
I hope you may discover some more to share with us.

My copy of this picture has written in the smae format as the name "Returned Draft" which I have taken to mean she was carrying troops (as can be seen on deck) possibly from Europe after WW1.
