Ulysses awaiting berth in the roads. Port Swettenham, Malaya. Taken from the ship's motor lifeboat on it's way up the jungle creeks to provide the lads with a spot of diversion whilst they waited. Ulysses and her sisters were originally being built for the Silver Line when they were taken over by Blue Funnel on the stocks. Hence the untypical profile for a Bluey. She was to have been Silverholly.
