Have recently acquired a DVD entitled "Ship Shape and Bristol Fashion" Volume 1. Like most scenes from the past in such DVDs, there is always something that catches the eye - in this case it was an 8-second sequence of a sling of meat being discharged from the hold for'd of the bridge of a vessel, with the surprise being that as the sling proceeded ashore, there appeared a funnel in Port Line (or maybe Cunard?) livery!!
The arrangement of wheelhouse windows isn't familiar as being that of any Port Line vessel I know, the funnel is tall and slim, could be a steamer's funnel, or maybe one of Port Line's 1925/1928 series of motorships. But, and the "but" is a big one (!), there is no evidence of a bridge wing cab - an item which most of the older Port Line vessels had. Can anyone identify the vessel from the two attached images, snapped during a play of the DVD?
