    Top picture is of the Wallasey ferries,Iris and Daffodil on their return from the raid on Zeebrugge in 1918.They are battle scarred and King George V was so impressed by the part they played in that raid that he ordered them to be renamed Royal Iris and Royal Daffodil.
    The second picture is of the White Star Liner Oceanic returning to the Mersey from the U,S.A., New Brighton Tower is shown just off her bow,the White Star tender Magnetic is off her port bow.

    I just love these postcards,sent in a bygone age when the world was a much bigger place and everywhere was faraway.
    The Strathaird like a gleaming white castle set in an azure sea,surrounded by bumboats full of exotica,the sunblasted mountain in the background telling of a land so hot that you can feel the blessed sun burning your cold northern skin. A British and India liner is moored on the port side ,could this be Aden and our ships be bound for the Orient?
    And then there is the Ranpura,majestic as she towers over the over the bustling launches and feluccas,this looks like Port Said ,the home of great literature and exotic herbs,plus those wonderful post cards.

    I have been researching my Great uncle Austin Owens who was in the Merchant Navy. I have found he was on " BALTIC 11 " in 1932, A White Star Line ship as part of the weekly Liverpol-New York route. In WW2 he was on " BRITISH TRADITION " in 1942 and " LA PAMPA " in 1944 working as a Greaser.

    He worked after the war also. probably on a lot more ships than i have found.

    My Nans cousin was aboard " THE BEDFORDSHIRE " when it sank in 1942 off Ocracoke Island USA. He was only 18.

    I am a total Newbie with Ships so i am loving these threads you guys are posting keep them coming.

    Hi Spike ,thank you for your kind comments,it is nice to know someone out there is interested. I was intrigued to hear about your sea going relatives.Should you ever need help in your researches you could do no better than to log on the Mercantile Marine site,there is a guy on there called Billy McGee who is the acknowledged master of M.N. history.
    And talking about history,here are two more from my archives....
    First is the Geelong of 1904,she was built for the Blue Anchor Line as an Emigrant carrier.P.O acquired the line and Blue Anchor disappeared without trace. The Geelong was sunk while in Convoy through the Mediterrannean after colliding with another British ship.
    The second postcard is of the Clan Matheson ,built on the Clyde in 1919 and the fourth ship in the Clan Line to carry that name.

    Here is the BALCLUTHA preserved in San Francisco, I have been on board many times,
    Built in 1886 on Clyde, She rounded the HORN 17 times in 13 years. 1899 sold to Hawaii 1902 sold to Alaska Packers, In 1933 she appeared in the film Mutiny on the Bounty, Charles Laughton and Clark Gable.
    In 1954 she was sold for preservation to San Francisco, a Very interesting ship to go aboard if your in Frisco.

    Couple of Thos. & Jos Harrisons here,the first is the Wanderer shown being piloted past Dumbarton Rock on the River Clyde, an old coal burner.

    Second is the first motorship of the line, and the first new build after WW11, the Herdsman. She is shown down in the Thames Estuary,passing a nice couple of sailing barges.
