CLAN LINE STEAMERS
Davidson (V H Young & L A Sawyer Collection)
Matheson (V H Young & L A Sawyer Collection)
Information received to date indicates that Clan
Line had as many as five cadet training ships: Clan Davidson, Clan
Malcolm, Clan Matheson, Clan Menzies and Clan Sutherland. Apparently,
they each carried 12 deck cadets as well as a dedicated Cadet Training
Officer. Cadets would spend two trips (totalling approximately
6 to 9 months) on one of these cadet training ships before joining
another ship of the fleet.
Nevertheless, it would appear that these
cadet training ships also carried a normal complement of ordinary
seamen; if so, they would not meet the cadet training ship criteria
specified for this web site.
Further information on this Company
and its cadet training operation would be most welcome.
