WANTED ON VOYAGE: LEYLAND LINERS: s.s. WINIFREDIAN & s.s. DEVONIAN

I have published my latest monograph in “WANTED ON VOYAGE”

LEYLAND LINERS: s.s. WINIFREDIAN (1899-1929) and s.s. DEVONIAN (1900-1917)

https://wantedonthevoyage.blogspot.c...redian-ss.html

Probably a pair of ships most have never even heard of before which as, so often with such vessels, is a great pity as they were the longest serving of all Boston liners as well as Leyland Line ships, a line which sadly is nowadays almost forgotten and once Britain’s largest North Atlantic cargo and cattle carrier.

WINIFREDIAN served as a transport in both the Boer War and the Great War and with DEVONIAN, the pair probably had more adventures, storms, rescues at sea (DEVONIAN being among those rescuing survivors of the VOLTURNO fire in 1913 as any sister ships in history. DEVONIAN was torpedoed and sunk in 1917 but WINIFREDIAN carried on until 1928, closing out the Leyland Line passenger service to Boston.
