Dumbarton built ships

Post by Joe McMillan » Sat Jul 24, 2010 7:31 am

Hi everyone,
I have just joined the forum and would like to congratulate those responsible for this web site on doing a great job.
I was born and raised in Dumbarton and emigrated to Australia in 1968.Over the years i have been trying to collect photos of ships built there by the various shipbuilders who were active at various times in the town.I am particularly interested in ships of the Irrawaddy Flotilla Co, most of which were built by Wm. Denny & Bros.
If anyone can point me in the direction of any of these or any other pics of Dumbarton built ships, either in their original names or subsequent names, i would be most grateful.
Cheers
Joe.

Hi Joe,

Once the site settles down I'm sure there will be plenty of folk who can answer your questions.
Pretty sure this is a Denny ship.

Joe :

There is much information can be provided though this site with many informed individuals, but probably one of the best authorities as far as Denny's Irrawaddy Fleet is concerned is Stuart Cameron, who is not yet a member of ClydeMaritime but will hopefully register on this site in 2 or 3 weeks after his return from holidays.

The MV Loch Seaforth (1947) - probably the best ship ever built by Denny ;) - certainly the best loved of all the Stornoway steamers! 8-)

Joe - don't suppose you are connected in any way with the McMillan shipbuilding name of Dumbarton and/or, at a later date, the Blythswood Shipbuilding Company of Scotstoun ?

Another Denny ship; PRINCESS MARGARET built in 1931 and which lasted until 1964 when she was sold to Hong Kong owners and renamed MACAU. She was scrapped in 1974 following storm damage at Hong Kong.

Well what can i say, the response to my request has been amazing and i thank everyone who has posted photos.
There were over 20 odd shipbuilders in Dumbarton over the years so there must be hundreds of pictures out there.
No Angus ,unfortunately i was not related to the McMillan shipbuilders in Dumbarton and the one associated with the Blytheswood yard.My father worked in John Browns for nearly 50 years through two world wars and beyond.I myself worked in Denny`s for a year when i left school and just before they went into voluntary liquidation.I worked onthe Aramoana, City of Gloucester and Melbrook also the hovercraft built inthe yard.
Hi Gavin, great to see that you have joined this amazing forum too.We can keep in touch through this site also.
Well folks thank`s again for your wonderful response and long may it last.
Cheers,

Thank`s again to all those who have responded to my request.
Your photo Graham, is of McMillans yard and it looks like one of the "D" class of motorships built in the 1920`s for Elder Dempster,i will check my records and see if i can identify the ship.
McMillan`s were taken over by Elder Dempster but they failed to keep the business going and the yard closed down in the 1930`s.Ballantines distillery was built on the site but sadly that too has now vanished.Many a "wee drap" i had of their product.Thank`s everyone and i look forward to any other pics that may appear.

Graham,I have identified the ship in the launch photo at Dumbarton.
It was the KANA launched on 22 August 1929 by A.McMillan & Sons, Dumbarton [yard no. 501] for James Moss & Co.Liverpool
The ship was a 2783 gross tons cargo steamer.

Hello Joe, I don't know if any other members have mentioned that there was an excellent article on Dumbarton built ships on Clydesite Magazine & although the Clydesite site appears no longer available I managed to access the article by searching on CLYDESITE MAGAZINE DUMBARTON. The article is well worth reading & it contains one of my favourite Clyde photographs of the Denny built MV Melbrook being completed at Linthouse. Best Wishes Iain Nevill

Drawing of PRINCESS IRENE from the yard in 1914. Not too sure who she was built for but she was taken over immediately by the Admiralty and became an Auxiliary Minelayer.
This from the Database: The liner Princess Irene, Capt. M. H. Cobbe, and her sister ship the Princess Margaret, were two new vessels completed in 1914 and taken over by the Admiralty for service as minelayers.
On May 27th, 1915, the Princess Irene was lying in Sheerness Harbour undergoing repairs. In addition to her crew she had 78 dockyard workmen on board when, at about 11.15 a.m. she blew up.
Two columns of flame, estimated to have reached a height of 300 feet, shot up from the ship in quick succession, followed by a tremendous explosion. At the time of the disaster there were 30 officers and 23 ratings on board in addition to the dockyard workmen. Only one workman and a few seamen escaped.
