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.
