Ship: ROSLIN CASTLE

Roslin Castle was built by Harland & Wolff, Belfast, entering service in 1935. She was the first of a series of R-Class refrigerated motorships. There were ten ships in total, although three were replacements for three war losses (one was also wrecked). The last was completed in 1946, and the last was withdrawn in 1971. Although of similar appearance, the ships were not all sisters since the size grew steadily to 8322gt for the final delivery Rustenberg Castle.
