    Indded so, she does not look like the old Transvaal like that, more reminding one of a Hospital Ship without the Hospital Logos!

    #3 I also worked for Whitco Marine a subsidiary of Salens who supplied all uniforms in GREY , would have looked very dour to any Rainbow Warrior excluding the ship of that name of course. JS

    The empress ships of Canadian Pacific were all white and looked very smart, the small Beaver boats were also all white and smart looking.
