Norland – background

Norland was a ferry that went to the Falklands’ War, in 1982 – years later, she took a party of Cheshire teachers on a Shakespeare tour of Germany, which might be a more interesting theme! HMS Antelope was sunk in San Carlos Water, by the Argentine Air Force. The Battle of Jutland was an indecisive clash between the Royal Navy and the IHSF of Germany in 1917. The Herald of Free Enterprise was a RoRo ferry that sank off Zeebrugge because the man responsible for closing her bow doors was asleep.

Norland was scrapped in India in 2010. Lord knows what happened to the painting.
