Ashtray with a ship and underneath is the name “Canberra"
In my possession I have a small ashtray, background made of electric blue butterfly wings. There is a ship and underneath is the name “Canberra”. If you or anybody collecting memorabilia would like it please send me the address. You are welcome to have it.
Thank you for your email and kind offer.
I suspect your ash tray is from the merchant ship Canberra, rather than from HMAS Canberra, the 8 inch gunned cruiser in which I was sunk in August of 1942. Are you able to scan a picture of it and send it to me by email please, or describe the ship?
Are there any guns visible for example?
Here is a picture of SS Canberra:
Again I am grateful for your trouble in contacting me.
