RMS Ormonde Napkin RingRMS Ormonde Napkin Ring

Very nice old Serviette Ring off this vessel. The ORMONDE was built in 1917 by John Brown, Clydebank for the Orient Steam Navigation Co. Launched in June 1918, she was completed as a troopship and didn't start her maiden voyage for THE ORIENT LINE from London to Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane until 15th Nov.1919. She was converted from coal to oil burning in 1923 and in 1933 was refitted with one-class accommodation. Requisitioned as a troopship in 1939, she took part in the evacuations from Norway and France. In Nov.1942 she was present at the North African landings and later at Sicily and Italy. In 1944 she was based at Bombay for Far East trooping work and returned to commercial service in 1947 as an emigrant vessel to Australia. She was sold for breaking up at Dalmuir, Scotland in Dec.1952.
