Many thanks for that information, Sinclair - much appreciated.

Interestingly, my mother said to me when I received the letter from Beulah:
"I wonder if that (the "Roslyn Castle") was part of the Castle line"......

- And so another Sinclair connection is made - 
my father was in the Merchant Navy during WWII, and one of the ships he
served on was the "ARUNDEL CASTLE."

(Grandfather was Ronald Alexander St.Clair Newman, son of Rosabelle St.Clair)
