Remembered Today:

SS City of Chester


Recommended Posts

In my grandfather's journal his August 16th entry he states "Embarked at Southhampton on the SS City of Chester - uneventful trip- disembarked at Boulogne next morning" However, when I looked up the SS City of Chester the information stated that it was scrapped in 1907. Does anyone know if there was a second ship by that name seven years later?

Thank you so very much. Like you I spent a great deal of time but was not as successful. You solved the puzzle and I'm grateful.
