The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model.

The SS Stratheden

This is from the DJ (David Jackson) Collection but sadly, at the moment, I cannot find any notes. If, when, I do come across them I will update.

Built in 1937 by Vickers-Armstrong, Barrow-in-Furness, she was launched on 10th June for the P&O; Line, and her maiden voyage to Australia started on 24th Dec.
She was 23,732 gross tons, length 664.5ft x beam 82.1ft, one funnel, two masts, twin screw, speed 20 knots. Accommodation for 530-1st and 450-tourist class passengers.
Between 1939-1945 she served as a troopship, was reconditioned 1946-47 and resumed her P&O; Line service in June 1947. Sold to John S. Latsis, Piraeus in 1964, she was renamed Henrietta Latsis, and in 1966 was renamed Marianna Latsis. Scrapped at Spezia in 1969.
