Liberty Ship – MARABANK loaded down in Capetown harbour…

Built as the ‘ Samouse’ in the USA and purchased by the Bank Line in 1947. Sold in 1960 to Italian interests and then became the RUSCIN. 2 years later sold again to become the WHITEHORSE for a further 7 years under the Liberian flag, finally going to scrap in Italy in 1969. A good 25 year career.
