Hi Everyone

Has anyone got a good photograph of the SS Norman which was built in 1894 by Harland and Wolff at Belfast ~ the ship was built for Union Castle

This ship was used as a troopship in 1914. During this time she was part of the of the first convoy to take men of the British Expeditionary Force to France

I have had a look on the net and managed to find a photograph but it is poor quality

Hope someone can help

Regards..Colin

Thank you for the photo of SS Norman. This was the ship that my grandfather Pte. 2524 Arnold Atkinson sailed on at the outbreak of WW1. As a regular serving with the 1/5th Northumberland Fusiliers he returned from India with the Battalion. Sailing from Southampton they were amongst the first of the British troops sent to Theatre of War (1) France.

An excellent page about Norman is [Broken link removed] . Great site, highly recommended. Norman's war time service isn't much covered, but I can tell you that she left Cape Town on 30th August 1917 in company with HMNZT Ulimaroa, HMAT Omrah and HMS Himalaya with ANZAC troops for Europe. Lovely ship incidentally.
