SS Ceramic Collision with SS Testbank

January 13, 2013

The photo that you show of the hole in the SS Ceramic IS in fact the damage that she took in the collision with the SS Testbank. (see "SS Ceramic, a victim of U-515"

SS Ceramic

I have a copy of the same picture, as my mother and I were on the Ceramic at the time of collision. 

She told me that we spent several months in Cape-town before starting  for Australia.


Thank you Tish, it is always nice to hear from someone who was in Ceramic at the time of her collision with SS Testbank.
