Footnotes

  • Built by Denny Brothers, Dunbarton, for Turbine Steamers Ltd. and originally called Queen Alexandra. During WW1 she rammed and sank a U boat. She was acquired by MacBraynes in 1935 and was renamed Saint Columba the following year, when she was given a third (dummy) funnel. She remained in service until 1958.
