MV TENNESSEE 1940 ?
Anonymous comment added on 09 April 2015
Is that "....ENA" just above the lower end of the lifeboat/gangway, or just a dirty mark ?

The Tennessee went ashore below the farm of Poole in Deerness in thick fog.She was carrying a mixed cargo including a large quantity of teak wood in the lower hold when she broke up later that year the east side of Deerness was awash with teak planks.I still have several bits of teak salvaged by my father the late Magnus Wylie The farm of Diamonds was fenced almost entirely of teak stabs he also had a threshing mill made of teak which is now in the Fossil Centre Burray.
