RMMV Capetown Castle

RMMV Capetown Castle

RMMV Capetown Castle was a Union-Castle mail ship launched at Harland & Wolff in 1937. It became a troop ship in 1940, and at some point must have carried Terry Ruff on his way to or from India.

Many thanks to Ken Creed for sending us these pictures, which were taken by his wife's uncle Terry Ruff during his time with No.357 Squadron, a special operations unit that operated over Burma, Malaya and Sumatra.
