Ship No 406

Was the lead ship in a two vessel order for the Ellerman Wilson Line. She was a beautiful looking vessel as all the early post war Ellerman ships were, they looked like ships that you could identify with at the time. She was just how a fine ship should look.

At 2340 tons, with a length B.P. of 290 feet and a beam of 48 feet and six inches, and a design draft of 28 feet and 3 inches. She was a single screw diesel cargo passenger vessel.

I sailed on this ship as electrical officer in 1965 on the 'Meddy' run.
