Hi Bob

Confirmed by the Southampton mafia; she brought in fruit from South America and spent Christmas in port. The other ships using berth 41 at this time were Elder Dempster vessels diverted from Liverpool whilst their new sheds were being constructed.

It could have been unloading anything. Only about a fifth of its cubic capacity was insulated. Hamburg-Sud and some other German operators, like Horn Linie, liked their ships to look like full reefers even though they were only partly so.
Made for some good lookers, though!
