I am looking for a picture for this ship, I would be most grateful if you could help or point me in the right direction. My partner is working on some of her family history and is on my back to help. The only info I have is below...

Princess Dagmar SS was a British Cargo Steamer of 913grt and was defensively-armed. She was built by
Napier & Miller, Old Kilpatrick in 1907 and was powered by a steam triple expansion engine which
gave 8.5 knots. On the 7th May 1918 she was torpedoed and sunk without warning in the Bristol
Channel by German submarine U-54 when on passage from Swansea for France with a cargo of coal. 24
lives lost including Master
