A Lavender Lady - RMS Pendennis Castle Original
RMS Pendennis Castle Union Castle Ocean Liner Original Painting by Marine Artist Roger H. Middlebrook GAvA
One of the finest ships operated by the Union Castle Line, RMS Pendennis Castle was built by Harland & Wolff, being launched without ceremony on Christmas Eve 1957 and made her maiden voyage on 1st January 1959.
With the advent of ever faster and more economical jet aircraft, the days of passenger liners looked all but over, yet Pendennis Castle would serve with the company until 1976. The speed of the improved liners allowed Union Castle to reduce the time and ships needed on the routes to South Africa.
Serving with great success during the 1960s, the ship was improved continually until her final voyage was made in 1976.
She was then sold to the Ocean Queen Navigation Company and passed through several other owners before being scrapped in 1980.
