Rattray Names

Once upon a time there was a merchant ship called Rattray Head. She started out in 1943 as the SS Empire Islander and was renamed Rattray Head in 1950, then Brick Quarto in 1960, finally being scrapped at Savona in 1973.

In 1965, AF Henry and McGregor Ltd took delivery of a new vessel named "MV Rattray Head" which was completed by Clelands Shipbuilding Co. Ltd. of Leith. AF Henry and McGregor Ltd operated the vessel until 1973 when it was purchased by Stephenson Clarke Ltd and renamed "MV Angmering". On 29th January 1975 she ran aground in Galway Bay while on a voyage from Gdansk to Galway carrying a cargo of 2400 tons of coal which was removed, but the vessel was declared a constructive total loss and was finally scrapped in Genoa, Italy in 1976 with her sister ship Kinnaird Head.
