S.s. Bayano

I am looking for any information/pictures of the Merchant Navy Ship S.S. BAYANO for the period 1933-1934. I can find it listed in WW2 but not before.

I have this photo of an old Bayano, looks like it came from a magazine. It was amongst a few old photos given to me, looks like it may be in your time frame. Not sure if it is in wartime grey or just a dirty shot. Ken.

Dave, welcome to the site. I hope you enjoy the wealth of pictures and information available here.

Bayano (2)
1915, 6,788GT, 425' x 54', coal fired, 3exp, twin screw, 14 knot service speed.
Built by Alexander Stephen at Glasgow, she was laid down as the 'Cauca', then renamed 'Arguan' and launched as the 'Bayano'. The previous ship of that name had been torpedoed with the loss of 195 lives on March 11, 1915. She began her career as an armed merchant cruiser. not taking up her civilian duties until 1919.
One of six similar ships built over a ten year period.
Accomodation was for 106 first class passengers, later reduced to 61.
Usually the schedule was Avonmouth-Barbados-Trinidad-Kingston-Avonmouth.
Scrapped in Belgium in 1956.
Ken, your picture has to be the right 'Bayano'.
The first of the name was similar, but not identical.

Dave, I have a picture of the Bayano in my Gallery, it was taken in 1918, she has a very unusual paint job, a Corvette painted on her hull to fool the U-Boats. I made a voyage on the Bayano in May of 1950. She was called the Lucky Bayano because she made so many Atlantic crossings (over 40)without suffering any damage from U-Boats. She was a Armed Escort Ship 1918-1919 on the North Atlantic run. She became an armed escort vessel again in 1940 on the same run. I have a picture of her and the Carare unloading bananas at Avonmouth dock taken in 1931. I will be more than happy to send it to you if you need it,PM me if you do with your email address.
John

Dave this email address above has a photo and brief description about her. Also go to www.merchant-navy.com enter Steam Ship Bayano into the Ships search and also the Google search and it brings up alot more info.

For crew info you can contact The Register of British Shipping in Cardiff or any local Library which has a Marine Section
