It was formed from the merger of the Union Line and Castle Shipping Line. It merged with Bullard King and Clan Line in 1956 to form British & Commonwealth Shipping, and then with South African Marine Corporation in 1973 to create International Liner Services, but maintained its separate identity throughout. Its shipping operations ceased in 1977.

  • Brass Officers Badge
  • Silver coloured Admiralty Constabulary
    [ONLY 1 SET AVAILABLE]

CONDITION -- Excellent

HISTORY -- Cap badges used by navies (and merchant mariners) around the world tend to follow the pattern in use by the British Royal Navy: an anchor, or occasionally a cockade, surrounded by golden leaf-shaped embroidery, and often topped by a crown or another symbol. For petty officers the leaves may be absent or replaced by a ring of golden cable. The main exception to this is the United States Navy, which once followed this pattern, but changed after the Civil War to the current designs, with crossed anchors behind the eagle and shield for commissioned officers.

[ONLY 1 AVAILABLE]

CONDITION
-- Excellent

HISTORY
-- Windermere is famous for its 'Great White Birds' - the steamers of the company are named TERN, TEAL, SWAN and SWIFT. The term  'steamer' is a slight misnomer however because all the ships are now diesel powered although there is a move afoot to reconvert one of them back to steam power by the new managers - The Windermere Iron Steamboat Company.  The TERN and SWIFT were built for steam power in 1891 and 1900 respectively. The TEAL and SWAN in 1936 and 1938.

NOTES
-- Many different cruise lines and maritime shipping companies are included on the Travellers in Time website. For information on any of these please email us at sales@travellersintime.net to ask about any particular items you may be looking for. (SCode-S)
