MV Daleby cargo ship model, Built by Armstrong, Whitworth & Co., Newcastle on Tyne. In 1934 sold to R. Ropner & Co. and then renamed Daleby. On 04 November 1942 it was torpedoed and sunk by German submarine U.89.

Occupation: Able Seaman onboard M.V. Daleby, Between 21 Jul 1953 and 4 Mar 1954. After a spot of leave, i joined my next ship the M.V. Daleby in the Albert Dock Basin, London .She belonged to Ropners Shipping Co. of Newcastle, England. It was loading for the American Gulf Ports. Our first port of call was Miami in Florida, this was just a one day stop to drop a few tons of cargo off. It could hardley be called a port, it was mainly for ocean going yachts and small fishing boats. As you approached Miami you past close to a number of small islands attached to the mainland by small bridges. On these islands live many film stars and one notable person was Al Capon whoes house was pointed out to us. Leaving Miami we headed for Tampa, still in Florida and just a short journey away. Again it was not a long stop. Then onwards to Mobile in Alabama. More cargo put ashore, some taken on and then to New Orleans. To reach this place you sailed up the Missisippie River,what a sight, with long strings of barges,( almost the size of small ships) being pushed by large tugs. Whilst there we visited some of the Night Clubs on the famous Canal Street and Bourbon Street. Also you could take a ride on the old stern wheel paddel steamers. Moving on to the next port of Huston, not a lot there then,but after fifty five years with the space age, I would not reconise it now. Here we loaded large bales of Cotton, for Manchester, England From here we moved down river to Galveston, to load more cotton bales, sulpher and lamp black. Perhaps I should say here, that the ship moved down to Galveston ,but three of us had had a night out and when we arrived back in the morning the ship had sailed. How to get back to the ship?. A dock worker told us to walk up to the main road and we should be able to thumb a lift on a lorry taking more cotton to Galveston for our ship. This we did and arrived back onboard late afternoon. We were called up to see the Captain and fined one Pound and a days pay. Next call was Brownsville, to reach it was by way of a canal, this was truly a cowboy town. Straight out of a film set. What we loaded here I cannot remember, but hey ho off back home to England. I stayed with this ship and did the same run twice more, before I left. (source: Kenneth Arthur Bromley)
