Was wondering if anyone can shed some light on this liner.
My grandad fought in WW2 and the troopships that carried him were the Dominian Monarch and the Almanzora.
Now we all know the history of the DM, but I can hardly find any info on the Royal Mail Lines Almanzora. I know a model of her exists in the National Maritime Museum, London.
I have never seen a picture of the actual vessel. I know my grandfather would love to see the ship once more. Can anyone help????

Michael,

You're a veritable walking reference guide! How do you know all this stuff? The McWilliams site was great. I missed the "Georgic" connection altogether. Live and learn...

Kudos and thanks.

Cheers,

Greg,

If you have time I would love to hear your Grandfather's story. Did he see the pictures of the Almanzora? What was his reaction?

Cheers,

I dont know much about my grandfathers War Years to be honest.
He was stationed in Egypt during the War Years.
I do recall him mentioning the Dominian Monarch having its swimming pool covered over.
Strangely, he cannot remember the name of the ship that brought him back to Great Britain in 1945!!!
