Sold back to Falkland Shipowners in June 1946. Lacking good pictures of the ship “Empire Norse” so if anyone has such, I hope you make a sound you 🙂

The above information is inaccurate, or perhaps thought the person who has written on the back of the picture only that the ships had come from South Africa, which could easily be the case when many whaling companies stopped in South Africa heading south. There have been no whaling factory with name “Durban”. – Geir Rosset
