    What a name to call a ship . La is also masculine I believe . I can imagine how and what sort of nickname she had , or even a person who had problems pronouncing French words . JS

    cappy Yr.#23 re MABEL WARWICK.
    You're right about the white'swastika' on the funnel, cappy.She was the fourth- to- last ship built at Grays,W.Hartlepool before they closed down in 1961.
    She had a sister-the JOYA McCANCE
