  1. Captain Charles S Smith OBE MN

    A studio portrait of my mother's older brother Charlie at the time of his retirement. A 'favourite' uncle of mine, he served at sea from the age of 16, with Don Line, Bolton Shipping Co, Furness Prince Line, possibly others. Ship (SS Ribera) sunk by U-boat in WW1. Ship's company all survived...
  2. Foredeck & fo'cslehead of Prince Line ship

    Photo doesn't provide any direct evidence of its subject's identity, and is undated. Found among other photos dated around 1934/5, which suggests it may be either Malayan or Javanese Prince. Actually Egyptian Prince (see Stephen Card's comment below).
  3. Boat deck of a Prince Line ship

    Probably either Malayan Prince or Javanese Prince. I was tempted to submit this pic in the ship identification section, mainly on account of the 3-funnelled vessel alongside. PS - In light of Stephen Card's comment, I accept this must in fact be one of the four 'Compass' Princes.

  12. Scottish Prince

    An older example of the same fleet. Built 1950 by Burntisland, as the all were, and with Doxford engines, steam auxilairies and steam winches on deck. She was on the Arab run so would do Libya, Egypt, Lebanon, Syria and sometimes Turkey, plus Malta and Cypress, but not Israel of course.
  13. MV Black Prince

    Good example of Prince Line's Med trading fleet. Run would be London/Antwerp, Malta, Israel, Cypress and home. General out, citrus home in the season. Twelve passengers
