SS Earl Thorfinn and MV Orcadia

Peter writes:

'This is a very similar picture to the one (picture #279) sent in by Craig Taylor.

Earl Thorfinn served along with Orcadia from 1962 until 1963.

Earl Sigurd served along with Orcadia from 1963 until 1969 (ES having lain idle in Kirkwall Basin 1962-1963)

Earl Sigurd departed in 1969 after the arrival of MV Islander.

The above dates come courtesy of "Days of Orkney Steam" and my now slightly fading memory.'
