Montmorency Park

I am looking for information and/or pictures of the Montmorency Park.

Information I have already:

Registered Montreal
Registered tonnage 1655
O.N. 174796
Managed by Christian Salveson & Co. 1944-45

The vessel was the first to transit the Keil Canal after the war in 1945.

Can anyone help?

Thanks.

Miramar has an entry for this vessel: http://www.miramarshipindex.org.nz/ship/show/297887.

Hopefully someone else can fill in more details.

Have you turned into a Mad Cow Alex?

Regards,

Brian

Launched as Camp Petawawa for bareboat charter to MOWT but manager not confirmed. 1946 August Pavic, Central Supply Company of Indo-China. 1948 Docteur Angier. 26 October 1949 ashore on Yoronshima Island, Japan, 27.02N 128.28E, total loss.

Brian, I have always been a mad cow, ask Coastie!

Yes, gents I am certain on this vessel being managed, briefly, by Salvasens. Several Shetlanders served on her.

Thank you for the info. All will be revealed, hopefully, at a later date.

When I saw the ship's name it sounded familiar, perhaps some former shetland shipmates had referred to her. I just wondered if you were so sure of the Salvesen connection if by any chance it was managed by Salvesen's of Grangemouth ?. Not the Leith firm.

Binnacle, am fairly positive that it was the Leith Salvasens, given that the gentlemen, who I am reaserching for, father went to South Georgia with Salavensens. I will check my information.

It's not yesterday, but I seem to think it was Burravoe men that spoke about sailing on that ship.

Very interesting you have started this thread as I started one on exactly the same ship, asking the same question a couple of weeks ago!

According to the Lloyd's Register 1944-45 the Montmorency Park was owned by the Canadian Government and managed for the Canadians by the Parks SS Co. Ltd.

I have more information now on the Montmorency Park.
Built Foundation Maritime Ltd, Acton, Nova Scotia. GRT 2875 - D/W 4700 for Ministry of War Transport, completed 11/8/1943 . registered Montreal, Official number 174796 as the "Camp Peta Wawa"

What I am really seeking is a photograph of the Montmorency Park, if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. Chief Engineers Daughter....
