SS St. David Hospital Ship
September 09, 2009
Thank you for your great website. I believe the picture posted of the SS St. David at http://ahoy.tk-jk.net/Letters/HospitalshipStDavidsunkon.html is in fact a picture of the SS St. David (3) built after St. David (2) was sunk at Anzio. See http://www.simplonpc.co.uk/GWR1.html#anchor1457379 for more info (including same image attributed to St.D #3).
Thank you for your comments.
Here are the two photos.
The top one mine, the bottom one yours.
There are some differences: the number of port holes ( scuttles ) in my photo they end much further foreward than they do in your photo.
Your funnel appears larger.
The anchors may be different
Your St David is a bigger ship than mine, the relative tonnages were St David 11 2700 tons.
St David 111 3352 tons.
All very interesting, and its really academic whether I have the right photo or not.
Very best regards,
