(C) RMMV AUREOL 1951-74, MV MARIANNA VI 1975 - 2001. She is shown here in Liverpool in April 1971. It is interesting to note that she spent over half of her fifty years as an accommodation ship (1975-1990) or laid up (1990-2001). It is said that right to the end she looked well found; as indeed she should as the last of the West African mailboats.
