Sailed in both Iron Somersby and Alnwick Castle, both good vessels.

Hello Ted
Great pic of Iron Somersby. I know that in her day she was known as the "Jolly Green Giant" but they made a mess of painting over the green! She was a great ship. Her sister ship was the Alnwick Castle, Australian National Line.
Best Regards
