I am trying to find pictures / drawings of this type of vessel. I have been trawling the internet, but can find very little of use. If you know of anything please let me now. Thanks in advance. jock paul.
I have found 7 type C7's, six built by Cammell Laird, Birkenhead and one by Napier & Miller, Glasgow.
All vessels are coasters of 271ft x 38ft and approx 1390grt.
The vessels were originally laid down with 'War ' prefixes i.e. War Forth etc., but were completed after WW1 with merchant names -
Napier & Miller:
It is not much but at least you have a start. Sources to check on their full details and their fates are:
Lloyds Register of Ships - 1920 through to 1946 editions
Starke Register of Ships - 1919 published by the World Ship Society
Thanks for replies. Mike,you list S.S.MONTAZAH, this was the ship I sailed on as 2/E, but by that time she had changed her name to S.S. RANGE. I have found a sight with a couple of pics of virtually identical vessels, The LADY PATRICIA and the LADY MARTIN, sailing for the BRITAIN & IRELAND STEAM PACKET COMPANY. There are some excellent pics of various ships on this sight. www simplonpc.co.uk/
