SS Dorrien Rose and Fullerton of Paisley

Post by elfyn.hughes » Tue Oct 06, 2015 9:03 pm

I am researching my late father's wartime service as Mate and later Master in SS Dorrien Rose. She was built by Fullerton of Paisley in 1922.
Does any one know if there are any surviving drawings of her or if the archives of Fullertons is preserved anywhere?
I would be grateful for any information or pointers in the right direction.

Sorry, I can't help re the drawings but I can advise on where to research of your father's service records if you need that detail.
I did some research on this ship a while back, mainly about her Dunkirk service. Quite a famous ship when you consider all of her crew received decorations for Dunkirk.

Sorry, I was sure I replied to you a few days ago but it obviously didn't go through.
Could you give me his name, date and place of birth please and I will point you to where his records should be?

Regards
Hugh
