SS 'Clan Morrison', 1918


This is a 1:48 scale model of the SS 'Clan Morrison', a single screw cargo steamer built by the Ayrshire Dockyard Co Ltd at Irvine, for Messrs Cayzer, Irvine & Co Ltd. Although a civilian vessel only designed for carrying cargo, this model of 'Clan Morrison' shows one 4.7 inch quick firing gun and two 7.5 inch breech loading howitzers on the stern for self-defence, as she was built in the last year of the First World War
