Caledonian

Can anybody tell me the history of the above ship from the 1950's onwards who used to sail between Scotland and Ireland? Thanks

I remember her in Larne in the mid 1960's as a Sealink Ferry. Caledonian Princess.

I believe that Caledonian Princess (the one that became known as the Tuxedo Princess on the Tyne) would have been launched in 1961 so not around in the 50s unless Batchman is mistaken about the decade.

Prior to the Caledonian Princess there was the Princess Margaret, Princess Maud and the ill fated Pincess Victoria.

As a youngster I remember travelling on the Caledonian Princess but that was in the 60s
