Hi Keith,
yes I'm on FB, as is Allan. Does your profile have the union flag and an RAF 100 years on it? I didn't want to "friend" some random chap Lol.

City of Liverpool

Any info out there about the City of Liverpool referred to?
Surprisingly the usually very reliable Ships in Focus "Ellerman Lines" makes no reference to a City of Liverpool of any era and yet there are two photos in the gallery clearly showing a City of Liverpool that appears to be of the 1950's City of Oxford class of turbine steamers. Ellermans certainly had an unusual policy of changing a ship's name during her career.
The Liverpool and the Hull where built at Robb Caledon at Dundee. They had a Doxford J Type as the main engine. I did sail on all 3 with most of my time on the Hull. Good ships, not UMS but Decca Isis alarm system. The London had a Sulzer RSA.
5 General cargo holds with tween deck and Thompson speed cranes.
The London had a right handed thread on the tailshaft, and a Pilgrim nut.
