CONDITION -- Very Good

HISTORY -- The Carnarvon Castle was built by Harland and Wolff in Belfast and launched on 14 January 1926. She was a twin screwed motor vessel of 20 063 tons, with a length of 192.25m, (630 ft 8 inches). She could carry 310 1st class, 275 2nd class, and 266 3rd class passengers with a crew 350. She also has the distinction of being the first Union-Castle motorship. She was extensively modernised in 1938 and given a new bow and her twin funnels were replaced by a single funnel with her tonnage revised to 20,133 tons and overall length to 661ft. There is no doubt that the refit improved her lines.

CONDITION -- Excellent

HISTORY -- The RMS Windsor Castle was the largest passenger/cargo mail ship operated by the Union-Castle Line on its 'Cape Mail' service to South African ports. Built in 1959, the new vessel was notable for the high standard, if conservative, design of her public rooms in a "traditional" first class and "contemporary" tourist class configuration, which by clever arrangement, afforded both classes public rooms and deck space facing forward. The spacious passenger lounges and dining rooms were designed by eminent British architects. Windsor Castle was air-conditioned throughout the passenger and crew areas.
