SS Oriana and two ships bearing the name Oronsay
May 19, 2009
Hi: Now that I had time to read your entire site I now see that there was only one SS Oronsay.
I have sailed both the Oriana and the Oronsay to and from Sydney, Australia and have loads of pictures to share.
As soon as I get them copied, I'd be really happy to see them on your site.
I am afraid that there were two ships bearing the name Oronsay.
The first built in 1925 was converted to a troopship in 1939, and was torpedoed off Liberia in 1942.
Oronsay 11, the one in which you were involved was built in 1950. and sailed till 1975.
I look forward to your pictures.
