Flk "Southern Empress"

Flk “Southern Empress” with tugs outermost Sandefjordsfjord summer 1936. The story behind the picture is that it was a strike among the Norwegian crews because. the conflict between Unilever (Southern Whaling & Sealing parent company) og Southern Whaling & Sealing was in danger of not getting prepared her (and her sister ship “Southern Princess”) out in time for the start of the season. It was therefore brought three tugs over to Sandefjord from England to lug her over to England to start the equipment where.
