St Clair/St Magnus/St Magnus II

Paul writes:
'Further to the comments on picture #119, this shows the second St Clair, built 1937, which in 1960 became the fourth St Magnus.

She is seen on Monday 31st March 1967 leaving Kirkwall for the last time, bound for Aberdeen, Leith and the scrapyard. By then she had been renamed "St Magnus II" to enable the cargo vessel that replaced her to take the name "St Magnus". The picture is by Phoenix Photos.'

Thank you Paul for your picture No1146 above, which I am sure, solves the mystery regarding the controversy of the identity of the ship in picture No 119.
Yours etc,
