Thank you Peter for a great story about a fine Shipping Company I enjoyed it very much, I made 4 voyages on two of Donalsons,1 on the Moveria in 1949 and 3 on the Norwegian in 1951. Matter of fact when the Norwegian was being converted from a coal burner to oil I worked for a couple of weeks while the shipyard did the work on the change over and then sailed on her on her first voyage as a oil burner. Good crews and excellent feeder. Sorry day when the closed down.

Hello, John... many thanks and glad you enjoyed it.

This is my second Donaldson project (the first being ATHENIA/LETITIA) and I found out, secondhand of course, what high esteem they were and still are held in as a company to work for and as passengers. And of course, family run to the very end which even in 1967 was becoming a real rarity.

It's always a good ship quiz question to ask what the senior British line was to the St. Lawrence (well after Allan Line was gobbled up by CP) and everyone assumes CP or Cunard when, of course, it was Donaldson Line!
