SS Kittiwake

I am researching an ancestor who became a master of foreign going ships in the late 1800's to 1900's. He got his certificate of Competency in 1903 at Liverpool.

The last ships he was on in 1903 when getting his certificate was the SS Kittiwake, Registered Liverpool, O.N. 106018 (looks like).

Any information on the ship etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Greetings 4thing - There are a couple of pictures of a vessel Kittiwake on www.photoship.co.uk which look as though she could be old enough to be the vessel you are interested in. Good luck - BV
